Men Having Babies’ Membership Benefits Program (MBP)

Stacks Image 34
MHB future and current parents can now become formal members of the organization by making a qualifying annual donation, and in turn benefit from significant discounts from a growing list of surrogacy providers and a wide range of exclusive peer guidance resources and offerings.

NOTE: As of July 1st, 2020, being a Supporting Member of MHB in good standing allows you to apply to our Gay Parenting Assistance Program (GPAP) with no additional fees. Even if you do not qualify for financial assistance, the MBP promotional offers will still make your parenting journey more affordable and informative.


Here is a summary of how the MBP works:

Qualification:

  • Future and current parents that support MHB with an annual donation of at least $150 per couple / single will be considered members in good standing - but of course you're encouraged to make a higher donation if you can afford it!
  • While this is a bit similar to our GPAP Stage I program, the benefits are typically lower and no financial qualification or background check are involved.

Promotional offers:

  • 111_GPAPI-GPAPII-MBP
    Dozens of surrogacy agencies, IVF clinics, law firms and complementary service providers have already pledged discounts that typically range $500 - $1500 each!
  • The promotional offers are detailed in new enhanced provider profiles we created (we are adding new ones every day - look for a checkmark in the MBP column!) You can also link directly to the offers from the MBP column at the rating & reviews tables, and the general provider directory.
  • Many of the promotions are for prospective parents, and some are also for parents (for instance a discount off embryo storage).
