LGBT Family & Parenting Services

Since 1983, Fenway Health Has Been an International Pioneer in Helping LGBT People Become Parents

Fenway was one of the first in the nation to offer alternative insemination services to lesbians and today we continue to provide medical alternatives for achieving conception, as well as a support network, education, and advocacy.

Fenway also provides resources, information, and educational services to LGBT-headed families. We hold educational presentations where parents can network.  We offer adoption resources, legal referrals, surrogacy resources and other information for prospective LGBT parents.

The Alternative Insemination Program

The Alternative Insemination (AI) Program at Fenway Health offers instruction for home-based, non-technical insemination as well as office inseminations performed by medical practitioners. Through thoughtful education, support from our staff, and optional support groups, women develop fertility awareness and learn about the various AI options. Our staff is available to help you work through the challenging yet rewarding issues and stresses involved in the AI experience.

Upcoming LGBT Parenting Workshops

Fenway Health’s LGBT Family & Parenting Services Program holds several workshops of interest to LGBT parents every year. For more information on upcoming LGBT Parenting Workshops, visit Fenway’s online calendar, which is updated on a regular basis.
