Helping You Navigate The Legal Assisted Reproduction Process With Ease

ART refers to a number of medical procedures that are used to not only deal with fertility challenges but also provide alternative mechanisms for growing your family. Several different assistive methods are available, with the following being among the most common:

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF)

IVF involves specialized medical tools and techniques to extract and fertilize eggs and then implant the fertilized egg into the uterus of the biological mother or a surrogate.

Egg Donation

Egg donation is when eggs are extracted from one woman and given to another woman. Some women go through a similar egg retrieval process but keep the eggs for their own use with IVF treatments.

Sperm Donation

Sperm donation is the collection of a man’s semen for use in artificial insemination (as with IVF) or other fertility treatments.

Reasons to Consider ART

Wanting to become a parent is one of the most fundamental and natural parts of the human experience. 

When conceiving or carrying a baby to term are not part of life’s plan, many would-be parents turn to science and medicine — and assisted reproductive technology — for help. Many people consider ART because they:
  • Can't have children on their own due to infertility, age, or other health issues
  • Want to participate in the pregnancy and delivery experience 
  • Are in a same-sex couple
  • Are single
  • Feel it’s a better option for them than adoption
  • Desire children but don’t want to be pregnant or go through childbirth
  • Have a genetic or other health condition they do not want to pass to their children
