Surrogacy for LGBT
The LGBT Surrogacy program by Global Star Surrogacy is suitable for the same-sex couples who are intending to become parents through surrogacy. An egg donor and surrogate are used to complete the IVF and embryo transfer process. In cases where sperm donor is required, we have sperm banks which will provide the same. Surrogacy is a popular option for gay men who want to be biologically connected to their children, as well as for lesbian couples who are unable to conceive or carry a pregnancy on their own. In LGBT surrogacy, pregnancy is most commonly achieved using an egg donor, gestational carrier and in vitro fertilization (IVF), and the surrogacy process is essentially the same as it would be for any other intended parent.
However, there are some important decisions same-sex couples need to make before beginning the process:
Decide who will be genetically related to the child. Unlike straight surrogacy, in which both parents’ genetic material is often used to create an embryo, same-sex intended parents must decide whose sperm or egg will be used. Some intended fathers choose to fertilize multiple eggs for implantation using both partners’ sperm, allowing either or both of them to be the biological father of a child.
Choose a known or anonymous donor. While it is sometimes more convenient to work with an agency to use an anonymous sperm or egg donor, many LGBT couples and individuals choose to work with an identified donor to complete the surrogacy process. Intended fathers may choose to use one partner’s sperm with eggs from a close relative of the other partner, giving both fathers a biological link to the child.
Once intended parents have made these important decisions, they should be able to continue the surrogacy process as any other intended parents would.

What is LGBT Surrogacy?
Over the years, Global Star Surrogacy has helped many same-sex couples expand their families through surrogacy. LGBT surrogacy is an inclusive way for lesbian and gay couples to enter parenthood.
While surrogacy for LGBT couples is no different for same-sex couples and individuals compared to any other intended parent, there are still some unique considerations to note and expect as someone intending to undertake LGBT surrogacy.
How is Surrogacy for Gay Parents Different?
Working with an LGBT-friendly agency
For many intended parents, it is important to work with a professional that is open to and experienced in completing LGBT surrogacies. As you consider the gay surrogacy costs and processes, also take into account the number of times Global Star Surrogacy has completed the journey of surrogacy for gay parents. It is thanks to our solid record and expertise in catering to same-sex couples that we are the agency of choice for those looking for gay surrogacy international.
Why LGBT Surrogacy Process is Ideal for Same-Sex Couples?
A concern or issue that same-sex couples always face with adoption is that the child is not genetically related to them. And LGBT surrogacy is a method through which gay and lesbian parents can have an offspring that’s biologically related to one or even both parents! This method is especially helpful for lesbian couples who are unable to conceive due to medical reasons.
In LGBT surrogacy, the pregnancy is achieved using an egg donor, a gestational carrier and through in vitro fertilization, all of these things are essentially the same as any other intended parent seeking surrogacy treatment. However, this is where the paths differ, same-sex couples have two important decisions to make:
Make the decision about which parent would be genetically related to the child: Unlike straight surrogacy, where-in both parents’ genetic material can be used to create an embryo, those going for gay surrogacy have to decide which parent’s sperm will be used for LGBT surrogacy.
However, if both parents wish to be a part of the process, there is a gay surrogacy method under which intended fathers can choose to fertilize multiple eggs for implantation by using both fathers’ sperm, allowing either one or both of them to be the biological father of the child.
Choosing the right egg or sperm donor: While it is certainly more straightforward and comfortable to work with an LGBT Surrogacy agency, some same-sex couples choose to work with a preselected donor to complete the surrogacy process. The intended fathers may choose to use one partner’s sperm with eggs from a close relative of the other partner, giving both fathers a direct biological link to the child.
Once these two important decisions have been made, the LGBT surrogacy journey is as simple as any other parent.

Trust and compassion are key during the surrogacy process. When my husband and I had twin boys in 2014,halfway around the world in Thailand, we were blessed to have Rekha as our primary contact. She was a ray of light when surrogacy was suddenly outlawed in Thailand during the second trimester. She kept us sane.
