Modern Family Building: Exploring Egg Freezing

Tuesday, February 8, 2022
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Parents and Baby Holding HandsJoin us for part one of our three part series on Modern Family Building. During this Zoom discussion, we will explore the decision to freeze eggs for future fertility use. We’ll learn from a fertility doctor about what’s involved in the medical process, and also hear from people who have made the choice to do it. The program will consist of brief formal presentations from each of our panelists followed by lots of time for questions. Depending on attendee size, we will use breakout rooms for more intimate conversation. LGBTQ and straight, singles and couples, Jewish and non-Jewish — are all warmly welcomed. Come prepared to ask questions, get support, and connect to other people looking to build a family.
