Summary: Shady Grove Fertility to host LGBT Family Building Options seminar at Rittenhouse Hotel Philadelphia, Feb25, 2015, at 6:30 p.m..


Main Document

At this event, Isaac E. Sasson, M.D., Ph.D., will teach prospective parents about third-party reproduction, and Melissa B. Brisman, Esq., Reproductive Attorney and Surrogate Agency Owner, will provide information regarding gestational carrier arrangements. All eligible attendees will receive a complimentary fertility consultation with Shady Grove Fertility.

Dr. Sasson will discuss how Shady Grove Fertility's third-party reproduction programs-which involve the use of donor sperm, donor egg, and/or a gestational carrier-can help singles or same-sex couples become parents. He will also cover program success rates, explaining how the donor egg and gestational carrier programs at the practice have some of the highest ongoing pregnancy rates per embryo transfer of all treatments.

In addition to high success rates, Shady Grove Fertility also provides patients needing donor egg treatment with access to revolutionary financial programs like the Shared Risk 100% Refund Guarantee Program and the Shared Donor Egg Program. When the two programs are combined, a patient can receive up to six treatment cycles for the cost of one traditional donor egg cycle, with the added benefit of having 100 percent of the fee refunded if treatment is unsuccessful.

"We're looking forward to sharing more about third-party reproductive options with prospective parents. We're also grateful to collaborate with Melissa Brisman, who has a wealth of knowledge and resources unique to those considering working with a gestational carrier to conceive," said Dr. Sasson.

In addition to educational presentations, Dr. Sasson, Melissa Brisman, and the seminar team will provide attendees with the opportunity to ask questions. The seminar team can provide a wealth of knowledge regarding LGBT Family Building Options, including clinical information, an overview of insurance coverage and available financial options, and resources from the psychological services team.
