Lesbian mothers, what should you know before having a child?
The reality today is completely different for what we know as the LGTB community. They have managed to raise their voice, in order to achieve inclusion in society, as a new diversity of couples and orientation.
And it has been achieved, since society more than ever has managed to assimilate and accept this new diversity, understanding that each of them must have access to the same treatment, rights and duties as any heterosexual person.
Currently, there are many couples and marriages that belong to the LGTB group, so declaring your orientation towards the same sex today does not generate a stir or a taboo subject, of course, taking into account that 15 years ago, society was more strict and intolerant.
But there is still a small fear, when declaring the next level, which does not only involve sexual orientation, nor marriage; We are talking about integrating a new member into your family, a son who will have two mothers or two fathers for parents.
Something that is totally clear about this is that there are already communities, laws, professionals and medical centers that support you in every decision, understanding that you maintain the same right to a healthy and full life. And the good news is that there are treatments for any homoparental case, but especially there is a method of assisted reproduction for lesbian mothers.
For this reason, we want to tell you that if you and your same-sex partner decide that you want to have your own child, go for it! But before starting that big step, you should take into account some points before starting:

That is what the baby will need at every stage of his life's development. During this process, a shared role will be established for both, being a mother, that is why there must be a high level of emotional maturity and affection.
Face your surroundings.
Have they already declared their sexual orientation? On the other hand, has their dating relationship or marriage been formalized? If the answer is negative to either of these two questions, it is best to forget to anticipate the facts.A child in conditions of marriage or homoparental couple, must grow up under the protection of parents who manage to face their own environment. If you, as a couple, do not have the courage to face the environment, how will your child do it?
