Summary: Event focuses on educating gay women with critical information they need when considering pregnancy.

Path2Parenthood (P2P), formerly known as The American Fertility Association and California Cryobank announce that their Gay Women's Gathering: An Evening on Lesbian Pregnancy series is coming back to Beverly Hills for the third straight year in a new location.

In order to accommodate an ever-growing audience of hopeful gay moms, the highly attended, free event will now be held in the Roxbury Auditorium on Tuesday, September 29th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The highly acclaimed series 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 include:

The relaxed and conversational event will feature Diane M. Goodman of The Law & Mediation Office of Diane M. Goodman, APC and Shahin Ghadir, M.D. of Southern California Reproductive Center. The event is supported by The Stork OTC as Educational Goody Bag Sponsor.

"Path2Parenthood is bringing our Gay Women's Gathering series back to Beverly Hills 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, now in their third year of support for our ongoing work with the LGBT community, for enabling us to expand our outreach," says P2P Executive Director, Ken Mosesian. "It's deeply gratifying to know how many women have attended these events, and how many more have gone on to realize their dream of family as a result. As the only family-building non-profit in the infertility space with a core commitment to working with all people, Path2Parenthood looks forward to hosting many more Gay Women's Gatherings in coming years."

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 lesbian families," says Scott Brown, Director of Client Experience & Communications at California Cryobank. Brown, who will be on the faculty for the event, further 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 Tuesday, September 29th from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. at the Roxbury Auditorium, 450 N. Roxbury Dr., Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

The evening is focused on the lesbian community, but all are welcome to attend. A drawing for one free vial of sperm from the donor of your choice, valued at $595-$795, will take place, compliments of California Cryobank.

Refreshments will be served. Educational gift bags will include Path2Parenthood's handbook, "The Gay Woman's Guide to Becoming a Mom," plus other educational content will be given to all participants. The event is free, but reservations are required. Call Corey Whelan at 718-853.1411 or email.
