Vol. 20 No 4 | Summer 2018
This issue of O&G Magazine addresses an important aspect of social, cultural and clinical life in Australia and New Zealand. Members of the LGBTI community have experienced a long history of marginalisation and discrimination, often to the detriment of their physical and mental healthcare.
There are multiple options for LGBTI people wishing to start or expand a family. Many choose to do so without seeking the assistance of a fertility clinic and options such as co-parenting, at home insemination, adoption and long-term foster care are well known and widely used.
The choice of known donor versus anonymous donor seems to be the most controversial topic when discussing rainbow IVF.
