The eight annual NY Men Having Babies Surrogacy Seminar and Expo is scheduled for September 22, 2012!

We are proud to announce the eight annual New York Men Having Babies Seminar! This year's day-long event is going to be the largest and most extensive program for prospective surrogacy parents ever…

We secured for the exhibit the participation of an unprecedented number of clinics and agencies from across the USA and beyond, most of them will be in NY for the first time. Alongside we will have representation or information from a number of supportive community organizations.

We are introducing an expanded format that for the first time will include 24 breakout sessions in addition to the expert and personal stories panels, a surrogacy and gay parenting exhibit, and a catered lunch. The breakout sessions will allow each prospective parent to choose up to six "speed group consults" with sponsoring agencies and clinics. See the "Breakout Sessions" tab below for more details.

This will also be the first event since Men Having Babies became an independent not-for-profit association, and for the first time sponsorship proceeds will be dedicated to the Gay Parenting Financial Assistance Fund we started!

Note: while the event is organized by a gay parenting organization, non-gay prospective parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from it as well.

So don't miss this event, and register early to save time when you check-in, and to get updates on new speakers, sponsors and breakout sessions as they are added.
