Surrogacy Seminar and Gay Parenting Expo

The first West Coast Surrogacy Seminar and Expo took place May 5, 2013, in L.A. The groundbreaking event, designed to provide the most up-to-date information to both gay and straight prospective surrogacy parents, featured 20 American and international surrogacy agencies and clinics; personal stories of surrogates and parents who have gone through the surrogacy process themselves; and panel discussions featuring legal and medical experts, and information on both independent and agency-guided surrogacy. Twenty-four breakout sessions and an expo allowed prospective parents to become more familiar with exhibiting agencies and clinics, as well as supportive community organizations.

SurrogacyAdvisor invites you to the MHB's Surrogacy Seminar and Gay Parenting Expo, which is coming to Los Angeles for the first time May 5, 2013!


We are proud to announce that the first ever West Coast Surrogacy Seminar and Gay Parenting Expo is scheduled to get underway May 5. The program is developed by nonprofit organization Men Having Babies, but it is designed to help both gay and straight prospective parents who consider surrogacy. This is the first such event to take place in LA, and it is based on similar conferences the organization produced with much success in other cities such as NY, Barcelona and Tel Aviv.

The groundbreaking event, designed to provide the most up-to-date information to prospective surrogacy parents, will feature 20 American and international surrogacy agencies and clinics; personal stories of parents who have gone through the surrogacy process themselves; and panel discussions featuring legal and medical experts, surrogates and egg donors, and information on both independent and agency-guided surrogacy. Twenty-four breakout sessions and an expo will allow prospective parents to become more familiar with exhibiting agencies and clinics, as well as supportive community organizations.

Admission is free, but an RSVP is recommended to save time at check-in and to get updates on the fund application process, speakers, sponsors and breakout sessions as we add them.
