The Men Having Babies Surrogacy Conference & Expo is coming to Taiwan, featuring surrogacy parenting options in both the USA and Canada!


Men Having Babies (MHB) is an international non-profit organization that has helped thousands of gay men worldwide become biological parents. On March 9-10, 2019, in collaboration with several local LGBT organization, MHB will hold in Taipei its first conference about parenting options for prospective Asian gay parents.

The conference will feature practical and personal peer advice and opportunities to meet a wide range of leading providers from the USA and Canada. In-depth programs will offer insights from the latest studies about contemporary gestational surrogacy in the United States, and specialty panels on insurance, budgeting, legal, medical and psychological aspects of surrogacy.

The program is based on a format MHB developed over the last 15 years in NY, Chicago, San Francisco, Barcelona, Brussels and Tel Aviv. Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program.

Note: while the event is organized by gay parenting organizations, non-gay prospective surrogacy parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from it as well.
