Family Building for LGBTQ+ Dads-to-Be

Becoming a dad means you will have lots of decisions to make, and that’s before your baby even arrives! For LGBTQ+ dads-to-be, there are many paths to parenthood, including adoption, foster-to-adopt, and biological parenthood.

Here at Illume Fertility, we are happy to support a biologically-related path to parenthood, but you can also learn more about adoption and fostering at our companion site Gay Parents To Be®.

Surrogacy for Gay Dads-to-Be

You may have heard other dads or dads-to-be talk about their surrogacy journey. Surrogacy for gay men actually involves an IVF cycle with egg donation and the help of a gestational carrier to carry the pregnancy and deliver your baby. Here at Illume Fertility, our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, and administrative staff is experienced in helping hopeful dads become parents through surrogacy.
