FAMILY OPTIONS FOR SINGLESFertility treatments
SinglesIn our modern society, there can be many reasons that affect your decision to have a child without a partner. Perhaps you want a child by a certain age, regardless of having a partner or not. Perhaps you’re divorced but still longing for a child. Perhaps you picture yourself as a mother or farther but not a wife or husband.Some individuals are focused on their career and having a baby seems impossible. Some individuals simple choose to be single or are not in a partnership that shares the same goals of parenthood. Maybe your life has been difficult to endure, and you have lost hope to build a family. No matter the reason for single motherhood or single fatherhood, only you can determine when — or even why you choose to build a family as a single parent.
There are many treatment options available to single women, whether using donor sperm or a known donor, or using more advanced treatment options. For single men, becoming a father through surrogacy requires an egg donor and a gestational carrier. Our supportive team is there to help you every step of the way!

EGG FREEZINGWomen freeze their eggs in order to proactively plan for their future as potential mothers. Egg freezing has quickly become the next logical step for women who wish to hold on to the dream of motherhood, but aren’t in the right situation to have children or are unsure. When you are ready to take the next step in becoming a mother, whether it be through sperm donation or you and a partner find difficulty conceiving, your frozen eggs provide a backup option.
Single fatherhoodSingle dads are becoming increasingly common. Many men, like their female counterparts, spend their twenties and early thirties focused on education and career. As the years pass, and the search for the right partner marches on, you may find yourself exploring the possibility of having a child on your own. The method by which you become a dad is entirely up to you!
Egg Donation & Surrogacy ServicesEgg donation and surrogacy are necessary to create and grow your family. During gestational surrogacy, the surrogate carries a child conceived of your sperm and a donated egg (in some cases, donor sperm may be used instead). The sperm of you or your sperm donor, as well as the egg from an egg donor, are fertilized and transferred via IVF into the gestational carrier.
