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!

Therapy Center of Philadelphia’s (TCP) group, Maybe Baby & Beyond: Exploring Pathways to LGBTQ Parenthood, is an information support group for lesbian, gay, bi cisgender women, transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive folks facilitated by Samantha Rucker, MA and Xihlovo Mabunda.  This group’s next cycle will take place on Wednesday evenings from 5:30PM – 7PM for 8-weeks beginning November 28th, 2018 located in the Philadelphia Building at 1315 Walnut Street in Suite 1004.  For inquiries regarding participation, please call (215) 567-1111 ext. 422.

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 TCP group will include discussion of pregnancy, prenatal and postpartum care, adoption, fostering, and surrogacy. The group at Walnut Psychotherapy Center will focus more on adoption and fostering with info about surrogacy available as well. Transgender, gender queer, 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 $125 per individual for Philadelphia Family Pride members, or $165 per 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.
