Welcome to our course focused on helping lesbian women use fertility treatment to become mothers. We’ll discuss the tradeoffs of different medical approaches from at-home insemination to IUI, IVF, to “co-maternity” or “reciprocal IVF.”
Almost Invariably, this process will require women think through the process of selecting a sperm donor and we’ll outline some of the tradeoffs for each approach.
We cover every issue for lesbian women hoping to have children: from selecting a sperm donor (using a sperm bank or a known donor), doing an at-home insemination, or using a fertility doctor for IUI, IVF, or using reciprocal IVF together with a partner. We cover the success rates, costs, risks, and some important legal issues.
