Resource Spotlight:

There are many different pieces to one’s family building journey. From the moment you decide to set forth on a pathway to parenthood there will be decisions to make: How? When? What help will we need? Where do we start? How will we pay for it?


Our resource spotlight for today, Gay IVF, could be helpful on several of these points. Gay presents the LGBTQ services division of the Reproductive Science Center of New England in the Greater Boston area.  Not only may you be able to utilize their support if you’re in need of assisted conception services, but Gay IVF also has great general information on the process, the options one has, and how to start moving towards one’s family building goals. Although it is called “Gay” IVF the website is affirming and inclusive of a wider LGBTQ community spread with separate pages for “Family Building for Gay Men,” “Family Building for Lesbians,” and “Transgender Family Planning.”

If your family building process is starting to feel overwhelming Gay IVF is definitely a great place to start!
