Welcome to the MHB Family Zone!


MHB annually helps thousands of prospective parents with advice, financial support and advocacy. Naturally, many of these men became parents and are seeking ways to stay involved, connect with each other, and benefit from programs suited to their life circumstances. The MHB Family Zone is where you can find such programs and resources.

The Parent / Peer Advice Network

The Parent / Peer Advice Network was created to allow Gay Surrogacy families to connect with other parents in your region, or with similar characteristics, for advice or social purposes, as well as to offer advice to prospective parents. Families that become part of the Network receive free Family Membership that provides access to the password protected profiles, and access to family-focused programming (see below).

How can you join this network? If you haven't yet, please submit a Parent Questionnaire and make sure to include at least one photo, and check the box "Speak / provide advice to prospective parents" in the question about sharing your surrogacy experience. If you already submitted a survey, please email us at (we may be missing some details or a photo).
