Surrogacy for gay men helps same-sex male couples build a family

All about surrogacy for gay men
There are several steps when building a family through surrogacy for gay men, and our staff helps men navigate each one.
Selecting the ideal gestational surrogate. The first step of surrogacy is finding the right gestational surrogate. We connect men with reputable surrogacy agencies that have surrogates undergo extensive evaluations to confirm they’re of optimal physical and psychological health.
Egg donor selection. As an egg donor is another important component of gay men having a baby, we also connect men with egg donors through our egg bank or outside agencies. These donors receive comprehensive physical, genetic and psychological screening.
Same-sex surrogacy laws. Because surrogacy laws for gay parents vary from state to state, we can recommend reputable lawyers who have an in-depth understanding of Tennessee laws.
Consistent communication. We support the hopeful fathers during the egg donation cycle, sperm collection, the fertilization of the eggs and the eventual transfer of an embryo into the gestational surrogate’s uterus.
Our clinic works closely with our patients to help ensure the experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Take the next step towards fatherhood
When men are ready to begin the process of building a family through surrogacy, the first step is a consultation with one of our Tennessee fertility doctors. To help men decide which partner will provide the sperm that will fertilize the donor eggs, the doctor will likely recommend the men undergo a semen analysis
Next, we support the men as they select their egg donor and gestational surrogate and complete legal and financial requirements. We then work with the couple, egg donor and surrogate to make a schedule for the egg donation cycle, sperm collection, egg retrieval and transfer of the embryo into the surrogate’s uterus. Ideally, the final step is the surrogate taking a positive pregnancy test.
Our clinic looks forward to helping gay men take the next step on the path to fatherhood. Contact us for more information about surrogacy for gay men.
