LGBTQ+ Family Building Options
At RADfertility, we celebrate diversity and believe all families are precious. We offer an array of options that allow you to choose what best fits your needs as you grow your family.
LGBTQ+ Family Building Options
At RADfertility we welcome all families. With a variety of treatment options for LGBTQ+ couples, we are happy to support them on their family building journey. These include options for same-sex female couples, same-sex male couples, and those who need a gestational carrier (surrogacy) to achieve parenthood.
Options for Same-Sex Female Couples
Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with donor sperm is a fertility treatment which inserts sperm directly into the uterus.
Reciprocal IVF with donor sperm offers multiple ways that both females can be part of the pregnancy process; one partner can produce the eggs, and the other partner can carry the pregnancy. IVF treatment involves taking a series of medications to stimulate egg production in the female. Eggs are then retrieved from the ovaries and fertilized in our IVF laboratory. An embryo is then transferred into the female partner who will carry the pregnancy.
Options for Same-Sex Male Couples
Our PreciousEggs Donor Egg Program in conjunction with a gestational carrier provides a great opportunity for male couples to build their family. PreciousEggs allows patients to utilize fresh or frozen donor eggs. Once you select the donor eggs that are right for you, they will be fertilized in our IVF laboratory. An embryo is then transferred into the gestational carrier.
Supporting the LGBTQ+ Community
At RADfertility, we celebrate diversity and offer an array of family building options because all families are precious. We are a proud sponsor of the annual Delaware Pride Festival on Saturday, October 2, 2021 in Dover.

"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."
"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."
"The RADfertility team gives you so much emotional support and positivity that it adds to your strength and keeps you focused on the end goal - a healthy and happy baby."
"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."
"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"
"The day I met Dr. Neithardt I knew she was the perfect doctor for me. Dr. Neithardt was so compassionate every step of the way. She held my hand, she hugged away tears, and continued to give me hope. There are not enough 'thank you's' in the world for Dr. Neithardt and the whole RADfertility team who will forever have a special place in my heart."
"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options. I am so fortunate and appreciative of the care that I received at RADfertility. They go above and beyond."
"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."

"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
