Parenthood for same-sex couples: A guide for service providers

This new guide outlines the recent legal changes of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 which affect same-sex couples.


Click here to download the new guide.


We hope that this guide, written by legal experts Natalie Gamble and Associates, and funded by the Big Lottery Fund, will help advice services and information providers to more fully understand these important legal changes and advise same-sex couples about their rights.

Stonewall has also produced a guide for lesbian women on getting pregnant and a guide for gay men on starting a family.
