therapyctrlogoThe “Maybe Baby & Beyond: Exploring Paths to Parenthood” groups are starting back up this year! This 8-week experience will provide information from legal, financial, fertility, surrogacy, adoption and medical experts, as well as emotional, social and community support around becoming a parent. Speakers will include professionals and current LGBTQ parents. Participants will finish the eight weeks with a sense of their options, how to navigate the process as an LGBTQ person, and connections with those on a similar journey.

The groups are generously sponsored by RMA at Jefferson. Thank you!

The group at the Therapy Center of Philadelphia for LGBQ women and trans/gender-queer and non-binary communities considering paths to parenthood met on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:00pm for eight weeks starting October 10, 2018 at their offices at 1315 Walnut Street, 10th floor. The group was facilitated by Rebecca Alvarez and Samantha Rucker. To sign up for the next set of classes that will happen in the fall, contact them at 215-567-1111.

The group for queer, gay and bi cisgender and transgender men and non-binary folks will meet at the Walnut Psychotherapy Center at 1500 Walnut Street, Suite 300. Therapist Josh Freker will be the facilitator. Call 215-563-7863 for more info and to get on the list to be a part of this group for a future session. (The summer class didn’t have enough participants to start unfortunately.)

The Therapy Center group will focus more on pregnancy, prenatal and postpartum care, with info about adoption and fostering. The group at Walnut Psychotherapy Center will focus more on adoption and fostering with info about surrogacy available as well. Transgender, genderqueer, non-binary and other gender expansive folks are invited to choose the group that seems best for them.

Cost for participation for the full 8 weeks for both groups is $250/couple ($125/individual) for Philadelphia Family Pride members or $330/couple ($165/individual) for non-PFP members. Those not already PFP members can join on our web site. There will also be a $50 intake session fee for both groups.

See the article on the classes in the Philly Gay News from 2/26/16.
