baby holding hand 300x200If you are thinking about building a family after undergoing sex-reassignment surgery (SRS) and/or hormone therapy, you should consider the routes to parenthood available via Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART).

Options available to you depend on your circumstances. There are many routes to parenthood currently available to trans/gender diverse individuals. Please contact our friendly team to discuss the options that are available to you.



  • As of 4th June 2020, people wishing to have assisted reproductive treatment in Victoria are no longer required to undergo a criminal records check and child protection order check. For further information please visit our page Legislative Requirements – Victoria.
  • When contemplating fertility treatment, you should be aware of the possible risks, some of which are comparable to those of elective surgery. We encourage you to discuss these with your treating specialist.
  • All treatment procedures are carried out at City Fertility in our RTAC (Reproductive Technology Accreditation Committee) accredited fertility clinics, where gametes (eggs/sperm) and embryos are also stored.


Before going ahead with fertility treatment, please consider that each state has different legislation in regard to assisted reproductive treatment, for example: in Victoria, traditional surrogacy is not permitted. Therefore, we encourage you to refer to your own state legislation for more information and see one of our specialists to discuss your individual circumstances and explore your options.


At Rainbow Fertility, our specialists have extensive experience in helping create LGBTI+ families. Feel free to contact our friendly team to learn more about the fertility treatment options available to you.
