Innovative Program Educates Hopeful Parents on Third Party Reproduction
Date:9/10/2009

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Fertility Association's Dessert & Learn, a free program designed to educate individuals and couples about their family-building options in a fun and relaxed setting, is coming to La Jolla, California September 21st. Those who attend Dessert & Learn La Jolla will engage in a conversation with Theresa Erickson, Esq., of Erickson Law, about third party reproduction options like egg donation, sperm donation, and surrogacy. To make the event inviting, Cups Organic Bakery will be on hand serving up a buffet of complimentary organic cupcakes and The AFA will be serving the Fertilitini(TM), the wildly popular all-organic, non-alcoholic cocktail. To make the evening even more relaxing, it's being held poolside at Ranch La Jolla, with magnificent views overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

"I felt that the Dessert & Learn series would be a great opportunity for me to connect with couples and individuals who desperately want a family but were afraid to ask the questions that they absolutely need to ask and to pose those questions that they absolutely have to ask," says Erickson. "In an intimate setting such as this, everyone can be in a relaxed environment that provides great food and great learning!"

Dessert & Learn La Jolla really benefits two different populations: the gay and lesbian population and those who are experiencing infertility issues and need a donor or surrogate to build their families.

"Family-building can be stressful. If you're experiencing infertility or simply require third party reproduction because you're gay, we don't want people's lives to stop when they are trying to have a baby and build a family," says Corey Whelan, The AFA's Program Director. Whelan went on to say, "We've created soft spaces for people to learn in. Life is hard enough. Our job is to make the journey kinder as well as informative."

This is Dessert & Learn's premiere event. 7.3 million American women face some form of infertility and men aren't far behind. While infertility prevention is extremely important, there are also steps that can and should be taken by those experiencing infertility and options that should be explored, like third party reproduction.

"Dessert & Learn is part of The AFA's Education Outreach Series, which takes education to people in uncommon but relaxing settings, whether poolside in La Jolla, at an intimate space in a restaurant, or in a manicure parlor," says Ken Mosesian, Executive Director of The AFA. "We knew we had hit on something big when our first Manicures & Martinis Infertility Prevention event was the cover story in Newsweek and our second event hit national network news on CNN American Morning. Like that event, Dessert & Learn La Jolla will also help us take a huge leap forward in normalizing the conversation about fertility, this time with an emphasis on third party reproduction."
