In February 2015 the new amendment for the Austrian Reproductive Law has been introduced. One milestone of the new legal situation is the treatment of lesbian couples – all procedures starting from the insemination to in-vitro fertilization are now permitted. Of course for every treatment the use of a donor sperm is necessary.
The care and treatment of this patient group requires special qualifications, equipment and adjustments within the administration of a fertility center. It is for this reason that in 2015 the Kinderwunschzentrum was the first Austrian institute to establish a fertility center for rainbow families. In collaboration with FamOs, Courage and Hosi we gathered all the necessary information and introduced our center to lesbian couples. Our information evenings “Kind & Queer” enjoy great popularity and after many years we are happy to support most lesbian couples in Austria with their fertility treatment!
