Q+ Family Building Clinic 

If you are an LGBTQ+ individual who wants to build a family or discuss your options, you’ve come to the right place. The Q+ Family Building clinic at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health is likely the first of its kind in the nation—a fertility and reproductive clinic within an academic center that’s entirely dedicated to providing comprehensive LGBTQ+ family building care. Because our LGBTQ+ family building clinic exists within our larger fertility care program at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, you will receive the best possible care on your family building journey.

Why choose Stanford Children’s for LGBTQ+ fertility and reproductive health care

  • Compassionate, culturally sensitive fertility care. In our Q+ Family Building clinic we assembled a team of expert, supportive fertility clinicians who champion the family building needs of the LGBTQ+ community. We recognize that often, LGBTQ+ individuals face additional challenges on top of the usual barriers to fertility care, and we work to remove them. We also offer mental health care when needed, including a support group for LGBTQ+ individuals trying to conceive and referrals to mental health providers who are familiar with the unique needs of LGBTQ+ individuals.
  • Easy-to-access, comprehensive family building care. Our dedicated care team recognizes all the diverse ways to build a family. We collaborate with a full spectrum of fertility and reproductive experts located under the same roof at Stanford Children’s to round out your LGBTQ+ family building care—including services with egg/sperm/embryo donation and/or working with a gestational carrier—to help you build your dream family.
  • Innovative, research-based fertility care for you. With us, you receive the very latest top-of-the-line fertility care; we take evidence-based fertility research and translate it into exceptional care for you and your family. Because we are affiliated with a renowned research university, we are empowered to advance studies designed specifically for LGBTQ+ individuals and provide you with leading-edge, inclusive fertility care. In fact, our doctors are leaders in national organizations that help establish best practices and national standards of care for the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Expanded and continued care via partner Stanford LGBTQ+ programs. We partner with our Pediatric and Adolescent Gender Clinic at Stanford Children’s to support LGBTQ+ youth to preserve fertility for the future, and with the LGBTQ+ Health Program at Stanford Hospital (the adult hospital) to offer you primary care beyond fertility and reproductive health. By teaming up, we can expedite referrals and provide continuity of care for you throughout your life.
