“Deciding to become a single mother is an important decision and we want our patients to feel educated and empowered through each step of the process,” says Dr. Tuttle, who has been working with fertility patients and single women for more than 15 years. “Having a full understanding of the practical implications and psychosocial aspects of sperm donation, both for the mother and the child, allows mothers to embark on this path to parenting with confidence.”
In January 2014, RMACT launched Single Moms To Be, a program designed to meet the needs of single women interested in becoming moms. The program includes a dedicated team with experience helping single female patients. In addition, the fertility practice has developed http://www.SingleMomsToBe.com, an online resource and community.
