Lesbian couples will need to choose a sperm donor and decide who will provide the egg and who will carry the baby.
Reproductively, you have a few different options available depending on your current health and personal preferences. Our team will help you make the decisions that make the most sense for you and your partner.
You will need to decide which partner will provide the eggs, genetically tying themselves to the child. This is a very personal decision that should take into consideration your current health, genetic health concerns, as well as each couple’s personal preferences.
Artificial Insemination, also known as Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), is a simple reproductive procedure that requires a sperm donor.
With Artificial Insemination, the fertility process takes place inside the body of the chosen partner using donated sperm. You and your partner will need to decide together who will carry the child.

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is one of the most common and most successful types of assisted reproduction.
With In Vitro Fertilization, the insemination process takes place outside of the body. Eggs (oocytes) are extracted from the ovaries of the selected partner and combined with donor sperm, usually creating multiple embryos. Once an embryo is tested and selected by the couple, it is then transferred into the chosen partner’s body, where it will continue to develop into a baby.

Reciprocal IVF utilizes both female partners in the reproductive process—one parent donates the eggs, while the other carries the child.
The partner contributing their eggs goes through the stimulation and retrieval process. Their eggs are then fertilized with donor sperm, and once successful, the embryo is transferred into the uterus of the other partner.
This process provides an ultimate opportunity for shared motherhood. The partner who donated the eggs is directly genetically connected to the child, while the partner who bears the child is connected through the process of pregnancy, birth, and breastfeeding, all of which are key biological experiences that connect a child to their parent.
