Surrogacy for LGBT Parents
Today, surrogacy is more common than ever for LGBT couples and individuals who want to complete their families — and this exciting family-building method could be an option for you, too.
In most ways, the surrogacy process is no different for same-sex couples than it is for any other intended parents; when you work with an LGBT-friendly surrogacy professional, you will complete all of the same steps and have the same rights and choices throughout the process.
However, if you’re considering surrogacy as an LGBT parent, you might have some more specific questions about finding gamete donors, choosing an LGBT-friendly professional, establishing your legal parental rights for your child and more. You can find answers to those questions in the articles below.
