Testimonial

“Though my partner and I are several years from having children, this group has been an
invaluable way for us to learn about all of our options and seek support and guidance
from other couples who are going through the same thing before we do it.”

“Anyone — LGBTQ or not — who is entering parenthood has so many questions, fears and
anxieties,” Haynes added. “Getting together with other people who are in the same boat
can be affirming and reassuring. It’s like, ‘We’re all going through this together.’”

LGBT Fertility Services

RMA at Jefferson is pleased to offer reproductive services to the entire LGBT community. We offer a welcoming and supportive environment for all of our patients. We have helped many same-sex and transgender individuals/couples become parents. Schedule an appointment and one of our physicians will review your options so that you can make informed decisions on how best to plan for your future family.

Our services include donor sperm inseminationegg donation ( with either known and anonymous donors), and gestational carriers. Female same-sex couples may also choose to conceive using reciprocal IVF. Reciprocal IVF is 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 to term.
