FERTILITY CLINICS AND HOSPITALS IN NYC

Many gay and lesbian families, such as gay men who are embarking on the surrogacy process or lesbians who would like to both be biologically connected to their baby, will begin their process by consulting a fertility center that performs assisted reproduction technology (ART). Others, such as lesbian couples, may try at-home insemination with no luck or discover one or both partners has fertility issues, and end up turning to a reproductive specialist for help getting pregnant. When you are beginning this process, especially if you are facing infertility issues or are beginning the IVF or ART process, it’s important that you find a reproductive center that understands your needs as a gay or lesbian couple (or single gay man or lesbian). It’s also important that you can trust they will treat you and your family with respect and offer you professional services. We’ve compiled the download on fertility clinics and reproductive care for the gay community here.
