Center Families Presents an LGBT Family Building Event

On Saturday April 27, 2013 GayParentsToBe, in partnership with the Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), is sponsoring an LGBT Family Building Expo hosted by Center Families in New York City. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about all aspects of family building for gay and lesbian individuals/couples interested in having a baby. This is an all day event that will feature panel discussions on all aspects of family building by focusing on the medical, legal, psychological, and financial aspects. LGBT parents will also share their personal stories and free medical consultations will be provided by appointment only. And stay tuned for celebrity guests during the lunchtime sessions and “Cocktails with Content.”

Our Medical Director Will Be A Featured Speaker

Fertility Doctor | Dr. Leondires of RMACT

We’re also excited to announce that our very own Dr. Mark Leondires of RMACT and Gay Parents To Be's medical director will be speaking at the event. Sometime on Saturday April 27, 2013, Dr. Leondires will be featured on the Surrogacy panel. Dr. Leondires is board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. He experienced the fertility journey with his husband and is thrilled to help those who desire to have a family, create one. His own experiences have enriched his approach to caring for all his patients, particularly his LGBT ones, since he can emotionally relate to their journey towards parenthood. Dr. Leondires was chosen for Best Doctors in America 2011-2012 through a physician peer-review process, representing the uppermost 5% of physicians throughout the nation.
