Gay couples who need to have kids will require an egg benefactor, who gives the eggs, and in addition a surrogate, who will convey the pregnancy. The egg benefactor and surrogate can be two unique ladies (utilizes gestational surrogate), or one in the same (known as a conventional surrogate). Note that some states, in any case, command that the contributor and surrogate must be two distinct ladies.

Surrogacy has become an increasingly vital option for gay men or gay couples who desire that biological bond to their child.
Entertaining a gestational surrogacy agreement, one or more embryos would be created through an IVF cycle expending donor eggs and the individual or couple’s sperm.
For gay male couples, it is an exciting and challenging part of Surrogacy in deciding who will be the biological parent.
Surrogacy is a Unique Process especially for gay men and same sex couples.
We understand that third party reproduction can be challenging for many reasons. Building a family is an especially unique process for gay men and same-sex couples. It may initially seem overwhelming, but with the right guidance, resources and preparation, it can truly be done with ease.
Utilizing a gestational surrogate and egg donor is an ideal option for many gay men because one partner can have a biological connection to the child. Some states prohibit same-sex couples from adopting, but surrogacy guarantees that you will be legally recognized as the child’s biological parent; your partner may not need to obtain an adoption for parental rights. We offer a thorough referral list of attorneys experienced with the unique legal issues from state to state. This careful consideration will determine the best option to affirm your rights and protect your family.
The decision becomes easier if you are planning on adding more than one child to the mix as you can pick one partner as the biological parent in the first surrogate arrangement and vice versa in the second surrogacy arrangement.
A popular option is to fertilize donor eggs with sperm from both partners, as each embryo created is transferred to the Surrogate Mother. DNA tests can define the biological father.
Some male couples today use donor eggs afforded by a relative of one partner, and the sperm from his partner, giving both of you a biological connection to the child.
It’s imperative to work with an agency or attorney who is well proficient within the laws of surrogacy, well experienced and displays awareness for gay couples in the LGBT community.
