Gay Women’s Gathering ™ in Chicago: An Evening about Lesbian Pregnancy
To help lesbians pursue parenthood with knowledge and confidence, The American Fertility Association (The AFA) is hosting a free, educational event about pregnancy and family-building options for lesbians in Chicago.
Gay Women's Gathering will take place on Wednesday, August 6th, from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM at Women & Children First, located at 5233 N. Clark, Chicago, IL
60640. Faculty for the event include Dr. Laurence Jacobs of Fertility Centers of Illinois, Scott Brown of California Cryobank and Julie M. Tavoso of Law Offices of Julie M. Tavoso, LLC.
Critical information like deciding between a sperm donor you know and one you don't, getting pregnant at home or in a doctor's office and understanding your legal rights will be discussed by experts in a relaxed, conversational format.
"This is the seventh in our national series of informational gatherings specific to the needs of hopeful lesbian moms,” said Ken Mosesian, Executive Director of The AFA. “As the only inclusive, national fertility association committed to serving the LGBT community, we’ve worked hard to assemble a top-rate knowledgeable team of presenters to help this community."
"Making informed and educated decisions on having a child can protect the legal rights of lesbian families as well as conserve the financial and emotional resources necessary on this journey," says Dr. Laurence Jacobs with Fertility Centers of Illinois. "Our priority is to help you achieve the family of your dreams safely and securely."
The evening is focused on the lesbian community, but all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served and educational gift bags given to all participants.
Registration is preferred and seating is limited for this free educational evening. For more information and to reserve your seat please contact Corey Whelan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 718-853-1411.
