As we continue to celebrate Pride Month all June, it’s important to celebrate and appreciate all in the community. Family building in the LGBTQ+ community has become popular in recent years, with more families aspiring to have their own biological children.

Parenting can be a lot of work. Support and community can go a long way for families raising healthy and happy children. But for aspiring LGBTQ+ parents, what resources are in place for family planning, medical treatments, and mental health pertaining to fertility care and raising children?

For aspiring LGBTQ+ parents, The Prelude Network is an incredible resource for those wanting to learn more about their options. Now, you might be thinking to yourself, “what exactly is the Prelude Network and how can I expand my options?” As the fastest-growing network of fertility clinics and largest provider of fertility services in North America, they are the clinic network of Inception Fertility.

Dr. Allison Bloom of Main Line Fertility, and LGBTQ+ Global ambassador for The Prelude Network, is just one of many who can attest to her incredible journey through family planning with The Prelude Network. “As an REI and member of the LGBTQ+ community, I remember being grateful for the advancements in ART that brought me and my wife our sons. I was equally thankful for the welcoming and compassionate care we received throughout our journey — one that was void of any discrimination that could have made our patient experience less pleasant,” she shares.

One of the most incredible things about modern medicine and celebrating families during Pride Month are the many options now available to aspiring parents and families. Reproductive options like IVF, surrogacy, and donor services are some of the options available today. Every stage of the fertility process and journey is important, which is why the work that Inception Fertility is doing is so important for the progression of families. From diagnostics and treatment to financial stability and accessibility, they are committed to giving LGBTQ+ families the care and support they deserve.

Each clinic under The Prelude Network is dedicated to providing personalized fertility care from the nation’s leading practitioners, focusing on the patient experience, medicine, and science. Nationwide, they are leading the way with over 90 clinics in cities like Miami, Houston, New York City, San Francisco, and many more. Touching the lives of each family member, services like egg freezing, genetic testing, LGBTQ+ fertility options, egg/embryo storage, IVF, and fertility preservation are offered. Celebrate Pride Month this June by celebrating aspiring LGBTQ+ families and members of the community.
