Family Building Seminar for Lesbians at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center

LOS ANGELES, May 18, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The American Fertility Association (The AFA), in association with California Cryobank, announced today a free seminar focused on family building for the lesbian community.

The Gay Women's Gathering will take place on Thursday, June 7th, from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza, 1125 North McCadden Place, in Los Angeles.

Critical information such as choosing a sperm donor, getting pregnant through insemination or in vitro fertilization (IVF) at home or not at home, unraveling the legal jargon, and maintaining optimum health will all be explored in a relaxed, conversational way.

"As the only inclusive national fertility association, we're honored to host this event in collaboration with California Cryobank," said Ken Mosesian, Executive Director of The AFA. He continued, "We've assembled a fantastic team of presenters who can answer all the questions that our audience members may have. They include attorney Stephanie M. Caballero, and Drs. Jane L. Frederick of HRC Fertility and Kelly J. Baek of California Fertility Partners." "Finding a sperm donor, selecting an insemination procedure, and protecting both parents' legal rights can all have significant long-term financial, medical, and emotional impact on a lesbian family," stated Scott Brown, Director of Client Experience & Communications at California Cryobank, who will also be speaking at the event. Scott further stated, "California Cryobank is proud to be a part of this incredibly important evening of family building education and support." Though the evening is focused on the lesbian community, family, friends, and supporters are encouraged to attend as well. A light meal will be served, and gift bags with educational content will be given to all participants.

The event is free, but reservations are requested by calling The AFA's Program Director, Corey Whelan, at 718-853.1411 or emailing
