NEW YORK, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- National nonprofit organization, Path2Parenthood (P2P) and California Cryobank, announced today that they will be hosting a Gay Women's Gathering: An Evening on Lesbian Pregnancy event in Minneapolis. The free event will be held at Sabathani Community Center on Wednesday, July 13th from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
The highly acclaimed series, now in its fourth year, focuses on educating gay women with critical information they need when considering pregnancy. A core focus on family-building safety for LGBT families, from legal and medical perspectives, is stressed. Issues discussed include the differences between known and unknown sperm donors, genetic testing, deciding upon at-home pregnancy or opting to conceive in a doctor's office, fertility health and Zika avoidance. The relaxed and conversational event will feature dedicated local professionals, Steven H. Snyder, Esq. of Steven H. Snyder and Associates, and Colleen Casey, M.D. of the Center for Reproductive Medicine & Advanced Reproductive Technology.
"Path2Parenthood is bringing our Gay Women's Gathering series to the Twin Cities in response to the overwhelming number of requests we have had from women in the area, who are ready to build their families and want information on how to do it safely. We are grateful to our generous sponsor, California Cryobank, for their support of our work with the LGBT community," says P2P Executive Director, Ken Mosesian.
"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 Scott Brown, Director of Client Experience & Communications at California Cryobank. Brown, a faculty member for the event also stated, "California Cryobank is proud to be part of this incredibly important evening of family building education and support."
The event will take place on Wednesday, July 13th from 6:30-8:30 p.m., at Sabathani Community Center, 310 E. 38th Street, Room J, Minneapolis, MN 55409.
