Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists is excited to announce that we’ll be attending the 14th Annual Men Having Babies New York Surrogacy Conference at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan from November 10–11.
Our Founder and Legal Director, Victoria T. Ferrara, will be available for 20-minute introductory group consultations from 3:20–3:40pm on November 10, and will be speaking at 10:45am on November 11 in an expert panel called "Budgeting and Insurance." In addition, our on-staff licensed clinical psychologist, Michelle Loris (PhD/PsyD) will be speaking on "A Mindful Look at Surrogacy—Attitudes and Ethics" on November 10 from 5–6pm.
The introductory group consultations give attendees the opportunity to meet our team and ask questions about Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists. Vicki will be on-site to field any and all of your questions about surrogacy, parenthood, and our agency.
In "A Mindful Look at Surrogacy—Attitudes and Ethics," Michelle will join Jan Silverman, a private practice counselor working with the Create Fertility Centre, to discuss the meaning and significance people tend to attribute to surrogacy in their lives—specifically from the surrogates' perspective. The conversation will be moderated by Elliott Kronenfield, the Founder and Clinical Director of Insight Brookline Psychotherapy and a father through gestational surrogacy.
Other featured panels include:
- Personal Stories Panel. Listen to personal testimonials from a diverse group of gay surrogacy dads, the surrogates that helped them, and an egg donor.
- Picking Providers, Budgeting and Financial Assistance. Get peer advice on selecting service providers, discover cost-saving financial tips, and gather resources for financial support.
- Happy Hour at The West End Lounge. An evening celebration sponsored by Family Source Consultants at the end of Day 1 (November 10).
The conference welcomes anyone that can benefit from support in their prospective parenting journey, and offers exclusive one-on-one networking opportunities with leading providers—including Worldwide Surrogacy.
We hope you can join us for this great event. Please keep in mind that registration is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP!
