As the first facility in Atlanta to provide Donor Insemination services to both single and lesbian women, we are proud to remain at the forefront of women’s healthcare by offering one of the most holistic and innovative donor insemination programs in the South.
Making Parenthood Possible with Donor Insemination
Since 1988, the Feminist Women’s Health Center has offered a DI program open to all women, regardless of race, marital status, or sexual orientation. Prior to that time, single and lesbian women seeking to become pregnant through insemination often had to pose as married women in order to receive help from private physicians. The Center’s pioneering work has changed attitudes among many physicians, thus creating many more options for women.
