Helping Lesbian or Single Women Start Their Family …
Excited about becoming a parent? Nervous? Don’t know how to start the process? If you are a lesbian or single woman wanting to have a child, you have come to the right place.
First of all we want to start by congratulating you on your decision. Becoming a parent is one of life’s greatest joys, and we are excited to guide you through the fertility treatment part of your journey.
For lesbian couples or single women, motherhood is achieved in using donor sperm and Artificial/Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) or through In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
- Artificial insemination or IUI is the process where sperm are isolated from the male semen ejaculate, washed and concentrated, and then placed into a woman's uterus using a thin flexile plastic catheter. This process is almost always used in conjunction with an ovulation induction medication. This procedure is painless and takes only a few minutes and is performed in the office.
- Some lesbian couples wish to have both women participate in the process and opt for IVF. In this case, we do IVF with the egg from a genetic lesbian partner with the other partner carrying the pregnancy. Sometimes this is called Reciprocal IVF.
The first step to building your family is just a phone call away at (480) 874-2229. You may also send us your contact information and we will call you. Our experienced staff will happily assist you in scheduling your initial consultation in one of our 3 valley-wide offices: Mesa, Phoenix or Scottsdale.
