Rainbow Fertility starts!

Australia’s first LGBTI dedicated IVF and fertility clinic has started- Rainbow Fertility. For too long IVF clinics seem at times to have tried to define who are and who are not families. Finally, there is a service especially devoted to LGBTI people who want to have babies. Rainbow Fertility is a service offered by City Fertility Centre. City Fertility operates in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia.

In the words of Rainbow Fertility:

“Everyone should be free to experience the joys of parenthood.

“We understand that rainbow families can encounter confusion and misunderstanding from others, sometimes even from medical professionals. It takes time to build a family and you’ll need all the support you can get. That’s why it’s so vital to us that you can trust us from day one and are confident we’ll do all we can to help you reach your goals.

“With extensive medical and emotional support, our fertility care is free from judgement. Whether they’re specialists or clinic staff, our dedicated team understands the needs of potential parents and commits to compassionate and inclusive care that treats you as an individual. Members of our staff have substantial experience in helping create LGBTI families and have also taken the time to attend LGBTI seminars and events to get a deeper understanding of the unique challenges you sometimes face.”

What is especially gratifying to me is that Rainbow Fertility, in addition to focussing on gay and lesbian parents to be have also said that they want to help those who are the most discriminated against,  trans and intersex people, to  have babies. Wonderful!
