For LGBT and Same-sex Couples
Tammuz Family was established to offer surrogacy services for everyone. We are proud that our IP’s are from all walks of life and are especially proud to be leading the surrogacy revolution for same-sex families around the world. Over the years, we have developed a range of unique surrogacy programs and breakthrough fertility procedures for the LGBTQ community. These programs have turned dreams of parenthood into reality for gay and lesbian Intended Parents in countries across the globe. At the same time, Tammuz Family has been leading the battle for equality in surrogacy and influencing changes in legislation that permit surrogacy in different countries for everyone without discrimination.
In 2015, Tammuz filed a petition with the Supreme Court in Israel to make surrogacy accessible to same-sex male and female couples, single men, and single women. Because of legislative changes in countries such as India and Thailand, which no longer allow surrogacy for same-sex male couples and single men, Tammuz Family offers single men and same-sex couples Guarantee Plans in the United States and Colombia, as well as fertility plans for lesbian couples.
Tammuz Family is aware of the challenges Intended Parents may face. We hold special workshops and seminars for IP’s and exclusive events for gay families where we offer professional advice, support, and training.
The United States: Surrogacy for same-sex male couples
Choosing the United States as a destination for surrogacy affords our IP’s a sense of stability and comfort compared to all other countries. After all, the United States has been 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. Tammuz Family coordinates everything from the beginning of your journey to the end and beyond. We help with all steps of the process including choosing the egg donor, creating the embryos, being matched and introduced to your surrogate (via Skype), and signing all contracts. We provide 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 where both fathers create an embryo using the same egg donor. Both fathers are genetically linked to one baby and both babies are genetically linked to the egg donor. This modern procedure has proven to be extremely popular among 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 looking for a more affordable option.
All IVF procedures, including embryo transfers, are carried out at Dr. Pedro Martinez’s Fertility Clinic in Bogotá. The Clinic is located in one of the best areas of the city in a brand new, state-of-the-art medical building. The Clinic also houses a 4-star hotel making travel for international Intended Parents convenient and comfortable.
All of our surrogates are Colombian women who reside in Bogotá. They all undergo a lengthy and rigorous screening process before being accepted into the program and must have had at least one healthy baby from a successful pregnancy.
Our egg donors are all Colombian women. Many qualify and enter our program as premium egg donors. They all undergo psychological and medical screening and IP’s are provided with the donor’s genetic profile, medical history, family medical history, education, employment history, interests/hobbies, and current photos.
