Chelsea and Sarah Cruickshank from Southbank in London, are hoping to raise the four-figure sum to fund private artificial insemination treatment.
Chelsea, 25, said that the couple launched the appeal as they ‘just want to have a child like any other couple’ – but cannot afford the treatment to do so.
She claims that she has been trying to get free help on the NHS for six years.
The couple want a procedure called intrauterine insemination (IUI), which uses a sperm donor.Chelsea said: ‘A lot of people say GoFundMe shouldn’t be used to raise money to have a baby, but you have to start somewhere.
‘I find it unfair that a lot of gay people have to pay for it – having a baby is a human right.’
The couple claim that most have been supportive of the appeal, however they have received several messages of abuse.
‘I’m very thick skinned and I’ve tried saving up to pay for this myself, but it is hard. When you get hit by a bill, you have to put that first and I’m on benefits so I only get so much.’£160 raised so farhttps://www.gofundme.com/chelsea-and-sarahs-baby-journey
