Family may be the destination, but there are dozens of different routes to get there—and even more being charted by the day. The LGBTQ community has long been at the forefront of creative family building, and a new generation of queer mamas are not only tapping into the latest technological advances in fertility medicine, but sharing their stories, struggles, and even spare meds thanks to growing online communities. We asked some new or expecting queer mamas to tell us all about their reproductive journeys, from deciding on doctors, donors, or the DIY route. Click through the full slideshow below to meet five beautiful families and learn all about how they brought their babies into the world—and prepare to be inspired!
