Growing Generations to Speak at West Coast Surrogacy Conference
September 26, 2015 - September 27, 2015
Los Angeles based surrogacy & egg donor agency Growing Generations is pleased to announce their participation in the Families through Surrogacy West Coast Conference this September.
Growing Generations’ co-owner and psychologist Dr. Kim Bergman is slated to offer the keynote address at the conference. Her presentation centers on the psychology of surrogacy and what motivates a woman to become a gestational carrier. Bergman will touch on issues including why the surrogate does not feel maternal bonds with the child and what characteristics are frequently seen in successful surrogates. Dr. Bergman is a well-respected member of the assisted reproduction community and has given similar presentations in several countries over the past year.
In addition, Growing Generations’ Marketing and Admissions Specialist Kelly Enders-Tharp will also be speaking at the conference. Enders-Tharp, a three time gestational surrogate herself, will participate in a panel discussion geared at helping intended parents select their surrogate thoughtfully as well as offering tips on how to grow a meaningful relationship with the surrogate once she is selected.
The conference, scheduled for September 26th and 27th, 2015, will be held at the Jewish Community Center in San Francisco, California. The event features a multitude of presentations and panel discussions.
Dr. Bergman will be available for private meetings during the conference. Those wishing to schedule a time with Dr. Bergman should register with Growing Generations using the form at the right in advance of the conference.
In addition to participating in multiple discussions, Growing Generations is a proud platinum level sponsor of the conference. Other sponsors include the Family Equality Council and the Bay Area Reporter.
