Congrats on your decision. My partner and I have thought about this but not ready to take the plunge yet. Good luck and I wish you well.

Default LGBT care in Fertility Austin

I might be a little late but we are so happy I am telling everyone!

We found Texas Fertility Center, Dr Natalie Burger and are working on an IUI w Donor sperm.
We went to another clinic in Austin, a single male Doctor, and just weren't very confortable. The waiting room was ALWAYS empty and the staff although nice, seemed standoffish about our relationship. The doctor was ok and spent a lot of time with us... i think because we were the only patients and that makes me very nervous!

I found Texas Fertility Center in the L style/G Style magazine and called for a consult. It was a great experience! they were very accepting of our relationship both the staff and doctor.

I did need to wait a couple of weeks to be seen but I think that's better than getting right in and being the only patient.

we go in for our IUI next week so cross your fingers!!

Congrats! Best wishes to y'all! I hope you find someone you are comfortable with!

Surprising you have these problems given the liberal mecca that Austin supposedly is. My wife is pregnant and we've had no problems up here in Dallas. I'd recommend a few people up here for you, but turns out that there are times you'll have to go to the office several times in the same week, so that would not be feasible.

Good luck again and best wishes on that little one!

You might want to line up a good attorney for the follow up adoption that will be needed to add the non-birth mom as a legal parent. You will likely have to go to San Antonio to find a judge too. Plan on spending about $10k in legal fees. I have a client who went through this and there were plenty of non-medical challenged that had to be met.

I know plenty of second parent adoptions that happened right here in Travis County! No need to go to SA. DM if you need an attorney rec. Don't forget to have a will too.

I highly recommend North Texas IVF at Dallas Presby Hospital. [url=http://www.ntivf.com/]North Texas IVF[/url]

They have been really supportive of our quest to build our family. Good luck!
