Future Family Launches Reciprocal IVF Program to Support Women in Same-Sex Relationships and Trans Men Access Fertility Care

For the first time, couples seeking reciprocal IVF can begin care from the comfort of their home, working with an on-demand Fertility Coach, get the preparation and support they need, and move forward with affordable plans when they are ready


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (Jan 16, 2020) -- Future Family, the female-founded company making world-class fertility care accessible nationwide, today announced the launch of the Reciprocal IVF Membership Plan, the first customized care package for reciprocal IVF that includes dedicated support to prepare for fertility treatment, including free fertility testing for both partners, a dedicated on-demand Fertility Coach, and a custom financial plan. All Fertility Coaches are registered nurses with years of clinical fertility experience who work as independent advocates and guides for couples navigating complex care.

This new solution enables women in same-sex relationships and transgender couples to co-participate in their path to becoming a parent with a level of support previously unavailable. 

When couples are ready to go forward with treatment, they also have access to financial solutions as part of their Future Family membership. 

Unlike traditional IVF for heterosexual couples, reciprocal IVF is an alternative conception method that consists of the transfer one partner’s egg, which has been fertilized by a sperm donor, into the other partner’s uterus. This enables both partners to participate in the pregnancy process. With 20 percent of millennials identifying as LGBTQIA+ and 77 percent of them planning to become a parent, this treatment is becoming an increasingly popular option. However, at $20,000 per cycle, reciprocal IVF is an expensive and emotionally draining process. These issues are compounded for women in same-sex relationships and transgender couples trying to conceive, who already face doubled medication costs, lack of insurance coverage, and fewer reproductive options than heterosexual couples.

“We’re on a mission to help everyone build the family of their dreams, and the LGBTQIA+ community is still vastly underserved in the market. With more and more women coming to our platform looking for help with reciprocal IVF, it just made sense to create a dedicated program to support everyone,” said Claire Tomkins, founder and CEO of Future Family. “No one should have to navigate complex fertility treatment by themselves, and that’s why all Future Family members have a dedicated Fertility Coach to guide them through care. It makes all the difference for a supported and successful IVF experience.”

Future Family’s Reciprocal IVF membership plan offers the guidance and emotional support needed to undergo treatment. It is currently being offered at a one-time fee of $898, but at a promotional rate of $499 for the month of January 2020. Members also gain access to financing, once they qualify, that is completely customizable based on a couple’s specific needs, removing the high upfront costs of treatment and brings all fertility care needs into one simple solution. 

The first financing solution specifically created to help women in same-sex relationships and transgender couples afford fertility care, the package includes everything couples need to navigate care and feel supported and successful along the way: 

  • A dedicated Fertility Coach to guide you through the entire process, including testing, preparation, and treatment 
  • On-demand digital consults via the Future Family app with your Fertility Coach and in-house expert team, which includes financial planning resources
  • Free fertility testing for both partners if needed (previously $159 per test)
  • Sperm bank matching to simplify the process of securing a donor 
  • Fertility clinic referral to a nearby, highly rated practice
  • Built-in discounts on medications that can save couples thousands of dollars
  • Simplified fertility management through the app that brings all aspects of care together in one place 

“We considered other conception methods, like artificial insemination, to start a family. But we knew that option would leave one of us feeling like a witness, rather than a participant,” said Besare Amaya, a Future Family client who went through reciprocal IVF with her partner, Marissa Amaya. “Future Family made reciprocal IVF a reality for us and we’re excited more couples like us will now be able to share the experience of pregnancy.”

This announcement follows the launch of Future Family’s Grandbaby Plan, which allows any family member, including parents, siblings, and extended kin, to take out a loan on behalf of another family member who is seeking fertility treatments when parents-to-be can’t foot the bill themselves.
