We provide here a range of articles addressing major medical, legal, financial and mental health aspects of the surrogacy process. The articles are written primarily by members of the MHB Advisory Board. The Advisory Board was established in 2016, and includes leading professionals from the surrogacy field. It is a unique forum for discussing legal, medical, financial, and social issues that are relevant to surrogacy and gay parenting among knowledgable and caring professionals, parents and surrogates. This advisory board meets bi-monthly at our conferences and it is an ongoing source of significant improvements to our programs.
