Men Having Babies (MHB) is an international non-profit organization that has helped thousands of gay men worldwide become biological parents. On March 12-13, 2022, in collaboration with local LGBT organization, MHB will return to Taipei to offer a comprehensive conference about parenting options for prospective Asian gay parents.

In addition to advice about parenting options, we offer in partnership with other organizations the Advocacy & Research Forum, to discuss the social, ethical, legal and empirical aspects of surrogacy and LGBT parenting.

More than 20 providers and community organizations will offer information on parenting options in the USA. In-depth programs will offer insights from the latest studies about contemporary gestational surrogacy in the United States, and specialty panels on insurance, budgeting, legal, medical and psychological aspects of surrogacy.

The program is based on a format MHB developed over the last 17 years in NY, Chicago, San Francisco, Barcelona, Brussels and Tel Aviv. Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program.

Note: while the event is organized by gay parenting organizations, non-gay prospective surrogacy parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from it as well.
