The Reproductive Science Center (RSC) of New England is a pioneer in helping same-sex couples, transgender and gender queer individuals become parents. RSC New England began offering assisted reproductive services to lesbian couples in 1989. In 1998, Samuel Pang, MD, medical director at RSC, was the first reproductive medicine specialist to help a male couple have a baby through in vitro fertilization (IVF) using donor eggs and gestational surrogacy. RSC New England began offering fertility preservation consultation and services to transgender persons several years ago. Services include medical consultations re: fertility preservation options prior to transition, egg and embryo freezing, intrauterine insemination and reciprocal IVF (one partner provides eggs and the other carries the pregnancy" (Information provided by the RSC's Marketing/Communications Manager).
