  • Intrauterine Insemination (IUI) with Donor Sperm
  • IVF with Donor Sperm

  • IVF with Gestational Carrier and:
    • Donor Egg

Psychological consultation is offered to all couples seeking third party reproduction. This visit is required for couples utilizing gestational carriers or known gamete donors.

*RMIA does not provide gestational carriers.  Patients are responsible for obtaining their own carrier.  This is usually a close friend or family member; however there are agencies that provide this service as an alternative source to patients considering this course of treatment.
