Engage & Support: Creating a Family Conference


Last week Fertility Source Companies  got the wonderful opportunity of presenting at the Creating a Family: Half-Day Conference for Prospective Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Parents at The Center Long Beach. The conference was a collaborative event sponsored by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center and The Center Long Beach bringing together experts in the field of LGBTQ family formation to help answer the community’s questions on their pathway to parenthood!

Fertility Source Companies was honored to provide a voice on the workshop entitled: “Building Your Family Through Egg Donation & Surrogacy.” Our Chief Operating Officer, Donna Raidy, offered her expertise on the ins and outs of egg donation.

We all had such a wonderful time talking to parents at different stages of their family building journeys, were so excited to be invited by the LA Center, and could feel the warmth of the wonderful space The Center Long Beach has built for their local community! We hope everyone got their questions answered but feel free to come find us if we can help with anything else or peruse all of the information on our website!
