PASADENA, Calif., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Founded by Bradford Kolb, MD, FACOG, President of HRC in Pasadena, California, Creating LGBTQ Families is a practice specifically designed to assist intended LGBTQ parents from the beginning of their unique reproductive journeys.
While most LGBTQ intended parents desiring biological children need assistance of some sort, the options and approach varies for lesbians, gay men, trans people and others. Creating LGBTQ Families addresses these differences throughout the process. On their website (CreatingLGBTQFamilies.com), gay men are immediately directed to options such as egg donation, surrogacy and possibilities for HIV-positive men. Lesbians are given information on intrauterine insemination (IUI), in vitro fertilization (IVF), sperm donation and egg freezing. Specific fertility services are also outlined for trans people.
By starting their journeys with actual fertility specialists, intended LGBTQ parents can be more informed when it comes to subsequently choosing a sperm donor, an egg donor or a surrogate using third-party agencies.
The entire team at Creating LGBTQ Families is dedicated to providing specialized fertility services for the LGBTQ community. Says lead nurse Kristy Sheldon, "I'm honored to be part of this program and to assist intended parents every step of the way."
Dr. Kolb has been a pioneer in serving the reproductive needs of the LGBTQ community. He published one of the original articles on reproductive technologies for LGBTQ families, and co-founded the HIV-Assisted Reproductive Technologies (HART) Program.
"It's been my personal passion," says Dr. Kolb, "to develop a comprehensive practice dedicated to creating LGBTQ families; one that's not only inclusive but entirely built around the community's specific needs and desires."
For many years Dr. Kolb has served on the boards of LGBTQ organizations and recently founded a special interest group for LGBTQ people within the Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). He is co-founder and Executive Director of the multimedia non-profit, Love Comes First.
