Free Teleseminar Explores Surrogacy Requirements, Rights, Rewards
Date:7/8/2008

CHICAGO, July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- An attorney, a psychologist, and a past surrogate will join forces with an agency advocate for a free teleseminar on July 31 designed to demystify gestational surrogacy.

"Surrogacy and You: Expectations and Realities of Carrying Someone Else's Baby" aims to help prospective surrogates understand the requirements, rights and rewards of the role. The panel of experts will discuss issues ranging from compensation to legal rights to emotional readiness.

The one-hour event is sponsored by Chicago-based Alternative Reproductive Resources (ARR); founded in 1992, it was one of the first agencies in the country to facilitate egg donations and, later, gestational surrogacies.

"Surrogacy and You" will be held at 1:30 p.m. (CST) July 31 via phone. For further information, to register and obtain call-in details, visit ARR (http://www.arr1.com/teleseminar_0708.html) or call 312.666.6662.

Format will be four 10-minute presentations, with the final 20 minutes opened to audience questions. Robin von Halle, president of ARR, will moderate the panel, which includes:

-- Elaine Brown, a surrogate from Colorado who is in her second surrogate pregnancy after having delivered a baby boy for a Chicago couple in 2006.

-- Jan Elman Stout, Psy.D., a clinical psychologist who consults with ARR's surrogacy and egg donor candidates as well as intended parents.

-- Nidhi Desai, a partner in Ballard, Desai, Bush-Joseph & Horwich, who helped author Illinois' progressive surrogacy law.

-- Mary Ellen McLaughlin, BSN, a partner in ARR, who works closely with its surrogates and egg donors.

"There's a tremendous amount of misinformation and confusion about surrogacy with movies like 'Baby Mama' and sometimes incomplete articles in the popular press. We believe many potential surrogates as well as intended parents would be interested in hearing from the experts," said von Halle.

Co-sponsoring the teleseminar with ARR is Surrogate Mothers Online (http://www.surromomsonline.com), the Web site "Become A Surrogate Mom" (http://www.becomeasurrogatemom.com), and the Web site "Surrogate Mother" (http://www.surrogatemother.com).
