IVF and Fertility for Gay Couples

Family building for same-sex male couples

Your journey to fatherhood comes with a unique set of decisions, extra steps, and legal and financial considerations.

When a fertility clinic isn't designed to juggle those pieces, they're at risk of falling through the cracks.

Oma Fertiity is a fully-inclusive fertility clinic for gay couples, LGBTQ, and more. At Oma, we understand your fertility needs are unique, which is why our team makes them a part of your care plan, built into our internal processes, and streamlined for you by your care advocate.

We’re on it.

We partner with LGBTQIA+ welcoming egg donor banks and other third-party services.
We coordinate with third-party services so there’s less on your to-do list.
Our staff is trained in protocols for processes common in same-sex fertility care, like using a gestational surrogate.

Fertility options for Gay Couples

Gestational Surrogacy
Our partner surrogacy agency will help you to match with a surrogate. We will then introduce you to attorneys who will guide you through the legal process.
You and your surrogate can opt for standard IVF or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), during which a single sperm is injected into each egg.
