LGBTQ Family Building

We have noticed that many fertility treatment centers categorize their patients according to gender, relationship style, sexual orientation and other factors before the first consultation has even occurred.
At Friberg Fertility, we know that the road to a healthy, successful birth makes stops at many of the same places regardless of these factors. We also know that the fertility path can be difficult without the added challenges faced by non-normative families.

That is why it is of utmost importance to us that ALL patients who walk through our doors feel warmly welcomed and confident that we have made no assumptions about their needs based on lifestyle or biology.

Located in the Greater Chicago area and serving patients from across the globe, our office is a stigma-free environment for same-sex, gay, lesbian, transgender, queer, single parent, non-traditional, polyamorous and heterosexual identities.

We vow to offer the same experience of customized care to each person we serve.

LGBTQ Family Building Options

Pregnancy Options

There are a number of options available if you or your partner would like to become pregnant. These include:


Gestational Surrogacy

With this option, you enter into a contract with a woman who agrees to be implanted with an embryo that is not created using her own eggs. This is a popular choice for single male or male/male parents. Friberg Fertility offers a full-service program and has been helping patients achieve their dreams of parenthood using gestational surrogacy for many years. You can learn more about the gestational surrogacy process and our program here.

Fertility Preservation

Dr. Friberg is happy to discuss fertility-preserving options if you are not yet ready to start a family but would like to in the future. This includes egg freezing.

If you have any questions or concerns about family planning, we would love to talk to you.
