We’re really excited that the team at Laurel Fertility Care are uniquely positioned to offer inclusive fertility treatment and care for any intended parent they help. Each member of the Laurel Fertility Care team has earned a certification from Family Equality in LGBTQ+ Inclusion for Family Building Professionals, to provide fertility treatment that is devoid of bias and discrimination.
