THE LGBT COMMUNITY
Dr. Najmabadi has worked with hundreds of couples from the LGBT community fulfill their dream of being parents.
There is a increase in LGBT couples wanting to use surrogacy as the path to start their families. Surrogacy is an option for our couples that are unable to conceive on their own.
Their infertility team offers two types of surrogacy – traditional surrogacy and gestational surrogacy.
With traditional surrogacy, the surrogate provides the egg and the intended father provides the sperm. Therefore, the child is genetically related to both the surrogate mother and the intended father or anonymous donor. The surrogate then carries the pregnancy to term and hands the baby over after it is born. When the baby is born, the surrogate turns the baby over to the intended parent or parents and signs away all parental rights.
Gestational surrogacy is a good option for women who do not have a functional uterus or who are unable to carry a pregnancy. Gestational surrogacy is distinguished from traditional surrogacy by the fact that the surrogate has no biological relationship to the child.
The first step in the gestational surrogacy process is to undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF) to produce an embryo that is biologically yours (you can also use donated eggs, sperm, or embryos if you are unable to produce an embryo).
The embryo is placed in the uterus of the gestational carrier, who will carry the baby to term. When the baby is born, the gestational carrier turns the baby over to you the intended parent or parents and signs away all parental rights.
The gestational carrier can be a friend or relative, or she can be anonymous. All gestational carrier candidates are thoroughly screened with physical examinations, psychological testing, family medical history, physical examination, and review of past medical, gynecological, and obstetrical records.
Surrogacy can be a very emotional and possibly complicated process; however, the potential outcome is the baby you have always dreamed of.
It can be a complicated process but CRH&G creates an environment where they guide you through every step of your journey.
