Surrogacy and the LGBT Community
In honor of LGBT Pride Month, Surrogacy America joins in celebrating the history of the LGBT community, along with the progress that’s been made in recent decades. The entire team behind Surrogacy America is a proud ally of the gay community and maintains a top priority of matching LGBT couples and individuals with gestational surrogates.
Modern family building is constantly evolving, with new technologies and laws shaping the surrogacy process for both surrogates and intended parents. Surrogacy often plays a significant role in family building efforts for same-sex male couples in particular, with these partners requiring the help of an egg donor and a surrogate carrier.
Modern Family Building
Regardless of a couple’s sexual orientation, Surrogacy America is dedicated to helping prospective parents become parents. We provide a welcoming, open environment that encourages same-sex couples to voice their concerns and expectations throughout the surrogacy process. For LGBT couples, being aware that you will require third-party reproductive services to have a baby from the very beginning of your journey to parenthood often provides you with a head start. Same-sex female couples can expect to need a sperm donor and fertility services such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF), and same-sex male couples require an egg donor and surrogate.
Using Surrogacy to Build Your Family
Using a gestational surrogate to build your family may seem like a daunting task. You are entrusting the growth and development of your baby before they are born to someone whom you did not know before you were matched. If you live in a state that is not surrogacy friendly, you may have to work with a surrogate who lives in another state. Even though these may sound like challenging obstacles, an experienced surrogacy agency like Surrogacy America can help navigate these common concerns and issues. We have worked with many LGBT couples, including international prospective parents, and have helped to create surrogacy arrangements that meet the needs and expectations of all parties – regardless of where they reside.
Building a family is an amazing, rewarding time in a couple’s life. We believe that everyone who wants to build their family should be able to do so, which is why we are happy to celebrate LGBT history and progress for all members of the community.
