RMA is pleased to offer reproductive services to the LGBT community in a welcoming and supportive environment.

LGBT Family Building Services

RMA has helped many same sex and transgender individuals and couples become parents. Thanks to the availability of effective fertility procedures, same sex couples and transgender individuals/couples have an excellent chance of achieving pregnancy. The process begins with a physician consultation to review options so our patients can make informed decisions on how best to plan for their family.

Our services include:

  • Donor sperm insemination
  • Egg donation (using both known and anonymous donors)
  • Gestational carriers
  • Reciprocal IVF (female same sex couples) – the process of using an egg from one partner, fertilizing it with donor sperm, and then transferring the embryo to the other partner who will then carry the pregnancy


In addition, sperm and egg cryopreservation are available to preserve the fertility of transgender individuals before undergoing transition.
