Lesbian Pregnancy

We are proud of being one of the first Northern California fertility clinics to provide In Vitro Fertilization for lesbian partners. We are a very friendly LGBTQ fertility clinic.

From a practical standpoint, lesbian pregnancy differs from conventional In Vitro Fertilization only in e need to use donor semen. This will most commonly be a frozen semen sample from a sperm bank. The rest of the treatment is identical to conventional In Vitro Fertilization.

One of the options for lesbian pregnancy is reciprocal IVF treatment.

In reciprocal IVF, one partner contributes eggs and is genetically related to the child (Genetic Mother). The other partner receives the embryo and is biologically bonded to the child through pregnancy (Birth Mother). In this way, both partners contribute profoundly to their pregnancy.
