Alternative Insemination Orientation

Howard Brown’s Alternative Insemination (AI) Program assists lesbian, bisexual, queer and transgender individuals with preparing for and becoming pregnant through alternative insemination. This session occurs every month and is designed for individuals or couples who are ready to begin the insemination process. Participants learn about key components of the AI process, including: insemination methods, choosing a donor and sperm bank, negotiating insurance/finances, and potential obstacles to a successful insemination process. Participants also receive a comprehensive referral list and resources that are specifically tailored to the LBTQ community, including: legal, medical, mental health, birthing, and reading materials to help prepare for conception, pregnancy and parenting as an LBTQ person. Participation in this session is required before moving forward with the AI Program.

The workshop fee is $50 for individuals and $80 for couples, and is required before moving forward with the AI program at Howard Brown Health.

Individualized Support All participants enrolled in Howard Brown Health’s AI Program have access to a patient advocate who can provide ongoing education and resources to individuals, partners, or family groups as they navigate the AI process. This patient advocate works closely with medical providers to ensure seamless and efficient care throughout all stages of conception and pregnancy.
