At Laurel Fertility Care, we understand the importance of working with a team that’s inclusive and considerate. We take pride in ensuring that each person who enters our clinic feels comfortable and heard, and our staff has undergone training to properly communicate with each patient through inclusive language and open-ended questions.
Our goal is to give each patient personalized care that treats the body and the mind while providing a number of different options to expand your family. We believe that each patient should be equipped with information about their fertility and all of the options available to them in order to make an informed decision regarding their fertility treatment.
LGBTQ+ Fertility Options
Scheduling a new patient consultation with one of our our fertility specialists gives you the opportunity to discuss your family goals and the route that you feel most comfortable achieving those goals.
After this consultation, Laurel Fertility Care’s third-party reproductive coordinator will provide you with all of the options that best suit your journey. During this process, you can be sure that the organizations we provide (i.e., surrogacy agencies, donor services and more) have each been carefully chosen by our specialists.
Here is a list of the family-building options we offer to the LGBTQ+ community:
- Intrauterine Insemination (IUI)
- Donor Sperm
- In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)
- Reciprocal IVF
- Egg Freezing
- IVF Surrogacy
- Gestational Surrogacy
Our Commitment to Inclusivity
Each member of the Laurel Fertility Care team has earned a certification from Family Equality in LGBTQ+ Inclusion! We’re honored to work with Family Equality to help ensure that each person who enters our clinic feels comfortable.
Mental Health & Education
There is tremendous value in surrounding yourself with a community who understands your situation. For this reason, we’re proud to offer support services through Infertility Unfiltered to each patient at Laurel Fertility Care.
We’re also proud to partner with The LGBT Mummies Tribe to equip our patients with the tools to find members of the LGBTQ+ community from around the world who have similar experiences with family-building.

Men Having Babies
Men Having Babies, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that was spun off in July 2012 from a program that ran at the NYC LGBT Center since 2005. Their mission is to provide information to assist gay prospective parents achieve biological parenting, promote the affordability of surrogacy-related services for gay men, and much more.
It started as a peer support network for biological gay fathers and fathers-to-be, offering monthly workshops and an annual seminar. Over time, elaborate online resources were developed, the group’s mailing list expanded to thousands of couples and singles from around the world, and it teamed up with LGBT family associations to develop similar programs in Chicago, San Francisco, LA, Miami, Dallas, Tel Aviv, Taipei and Brussels.
