NEW YORK, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – The American Fertility Association (The AFA) and California Cryobank, announced today a free, educational event about pregnancy and family-building options for lesbians of all ages in Brooklyn, New York.
The Gay Women's Gathering will take place on Wednesday, January 8th, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at the Brooklyn Community Pride Center, located at 4 MetroTech (ground floor), Brooklyn, NY 11201.
Critical information, such as deciding between a sperm donor you know and one you don't, getting pregnant at home or in a doctor's office, understanding your legal rights and optimizing your fertility potential will be discussed by experts in a relaxed, conversational format.
"Due to the overwhelming response we had to the first Gay Women's Gathering held in Brooklyn last year, The AFA and California Cryobank are bringing the fifth event in this national series back to the Brooklyn Community Pride Center. We're excited to work with this thriving community again, and invite all interested parties to attend. As the only inclusive, national fertility association committed to serving the LGBT community, we're grateful to California Cryobank, whose generous sponsorship of our work makes these events possible," said Ken Mosesian, Executive Director of The AFA, who added, "We've assembled a stellar and knowledgeable team of presenters, known for their commitment to this population, including top-notch attorney Melissa B. Brisman, Esq. and Brooklyn's own Diana E. Chavkin, M.D. of Genesis Fertility & Reproductive Medicine."
"Finding a sperm donor, selecting an insemination procedure, and protecting both parents' legal rights can all have significant, long-term financial, medical and emotional impact on a lesbian family," stated faculty member Scott Brown, Director of Client Experience & Communications at California Cryobank. Brown further stated, "California Cryobank is proud to be part of this incredibly important evening of family building education and support."
The evening is focused on the lesbian community, but all are welcome to attend. A light dinner will be served and educational gift bags given to all participants.
The evening is free, but reservations are preferred. Please call Corey Whelan at 718-853.1411 or email.
