National Doctors Day

My name is Emma, and I’m lucky enough to work at a fertility practice that has a dedicated program to help the LGBTQ community build their families. Today is National Doctors' Day, and I want to introduce you to the Gay Parent To Be physician team.

Gay Parents To Be is a program at RMA of Connecticut, that draws on the full strength of the entire RMA of CT family, from the care team and physicians, to the laboratory technology and cutting-edge science. Our dedicated team includes 6 board-certified reproductive endocrinologists, who are able to help you along your path to parenthood. 

Meet our Physicians

Richkin0H4A9362  Dr. Spencer Richlin 

Hurwitz0H4A9482  Dr. Joshua Hurwitz

Murdock0H4A9435  Dr. Cynthia Murdock

Williams0H4A9374  Dr. Shaun Williams

Ressler0H4A9401  Dr. Ilana Ressler

And the founder of Gay Parents To Be,

 Leondires0H4A9334  Dr. Mark Leondires. 

Dr. Leondires and his husband are dads through IVF and surrogacy, so he knows firsthand about the unique challenges and joys of LGBTQ family building. When going through his own journey, he realized just how frustrating it is to not know where to start, or where to go to learn about biological LGBTQ family building. It was through this experience that the idea for Gay Parents To Be was born (pardon the pun). 

Gay Parents To Be at RMA of Connecticut is one of only 2 fertility clinics nationwide to earn the designation of a Healthcare Equality leader in equity and inclusivity by the Human Rights Campaign. We’re here for you, as a stepping stone, a starting line, and a place to get accurate and helpful information about the family building process whether that’s insemination, IVF, or surrogacy. No matter who you are or what your family building plan looks like, we’re here to support you. 

This National Doctor’s Day, our doctors and all of our staff want to take the opportunity to celebrate YOU. From me, and all of us here at Gay Parents To Be & RMA of Connecticut, thanks for being you, for taking those big steps to learn more and grow your families.
