For gay couples
Tammuz Family was established to offer surrogacy services for everyone, without discrimination. We are proud that our IP’s are from all walks of life and we are especially proud to be leading the surrogacy revolution among same sex families around the world. Over the years, we have developed a range of unique surrogacy programs and breakthrough fertility procedures for the LGBT community, which have turned the dreams of parenthood into reality for gay men and lesbians in many countries around the globe. At the same time, Tammuz Family has been leading the battle for equality in surrogacy, influencing changes in legislation that permits surrogacy in different countries for everyone, without discrimination.
In 2015 Tammuz filed a petition to the Supreme Court in Israel in order to make surrogacy accessible to same sex male and female couples, single men and single women. Due to legislative changes in various countries such as India and Thailand, which led to the closing of surrogacy for same sex male couples and singles, Tammuz Family now offers single men and same-sex couples Guarantee Plans in the USA, Colombia and Albania, as well as fertility plans for lesbian couples.
Tammuz Family is aware of the challenges intended parents may face, therefore we hold special workshops and seminars for IP’s and also hold exclusive events for gay families offering professional advice, support and training.
The USA- Surrogacy for same-sex male couples.
Choosing the USA as a destination for surrogacy affords our IP’s a sense of stability and comfort compared to all other countries in the world. After all, the USA has been the leading the surrogacy revolution for two decades now. Our IP’s feel safe knowing that all medical and legal processes are fulfilled in the utmost professional manner and that Tammuz Family coordinates everything for you from the beginning of your journey to the end and beyond including choosing the egg donor, creating the embryos, being matched and introduced to your surrogate (via Skype), signing all contracts and of course the best personal guidance and support throughout your journey right up to the birth of your baby.
In addition, same sex male couples can elect to attempt a twin pregnancy, whereby both fathers create an embryo each using the same egg donor. This ultimately results in the fathers being linked genetically to one baby each and both of the babies are subsequently genetically linked to the egg donor. This modern procedure has proven to be extremely popular amongst gay couples, however it is important to acknowledge the risks associated with twin pregnancies.
Colombia- Our newest surrogacy destination for same-sex male couples.
Surrogacy in Colombia is legal and available to gay couples who are looking for a more affordable option.
