[Australia] - Seminars - EGG DONATION AND SURROGACY IN AMERICA with Daniel A. Potter, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Gay Dads Australia often gets notifications of seminars being held in Australia by overseas Surrogacy/IVF agencies.  We will happily announce them on the Gay Dads Australia website however any announcements are not endorsements.  

We know that for Aussie gay dads-to-be - getting to contact and meet agencies in other countries if often only possible by phone, skype or jumping on a plane!  The opportunity to meet an agency in Australia doesn't come around often and we encourage dads-to-be to take advantage of the opportunity to meet and ask lots of questions. To find out more about, please read below.


Egg donation and surrogacy has been made difficult (an in some cases illegal) for Australians due to current government policy.   In this seminar the attendees will learn how California, and particularly HRC Fertility, is the optimal choice for couples seeking to start a family with egg donation and/or surrogacy.  Attendees will hear how about the logistical, financial, legal and scientific issues surrounding these treatments.  Attendees will learn about strategies to minimize cost and maximize pregnancy rates.  The presenters will include Daniel A.  Potter, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.,  a leading fertility specialist in California, as well as three different egg donor and surrogacy agencies.  Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with and as questions of Dr. Potter and the other presenters.  All attendees will receive a voucher for a free telephone consultation with Dr. Potter.  There will also be drawings for valuable prizes, including vouchers for up to $5,000 US toward donor egg IVF and/or surrogacy, vouchers for discounted egg donor and surrogacy fees, vouchers for discounted donor medication and PGD.  This event is open to guests who RSVP only.  No walk ins will be permitted.
