This workshop is intended to provide an opportunity for service providers to develop and deepen their knowledge of the legal, social, and practical aspects of LGBTQ family planning, and become aware of information and resources available to prospective parents. Multiple pathways to parenthood for LGBTQ prospective parents including adoption, sperm, egg, and embryo donation, co-parenting, and surrogacy will be examined. The goal of the workshop is to help service providers gain knowledge to use to assist LGBTQ clients in visioning, accessing information and resources in anticipation that our clients are now considering parenthood or may consider parenthood in the future.
