Event description
A discussion on what you need to navigate the medical & legal aspects of family planning. Family Law, Egg Freezing, Fertility & More

About this Event

Philadelphia Magazine recently asked "Doesn't Anyone Want Kids Anymore?". Perhaps another question is "What are all of my options??".

Join us on Thursday, March 5th from 5:15pm - 8:30pm for an engaging and open panel on the Modern Family: everything you need to know about your medical and legal options in building your family. The discussion is open to all individuals, couples, and partners, including family building for LGBTQ families and Single Parents by Choice. Societal norms on when, who, and how we have families is changing, and we’re here to navigate this new normal.

Hosted by Vaysman Legal, a boutique family building law firm in Philadelphia, we are bringing together medical and legal leaders to share their wealth of knowledge with you in planning for your family.

Our panelists will share the comprehensive landscape of fertility, family law, and family planning. Panelists and topics include :

  • Brianna Schumacher, MD, MSCR, a reproductive and infertility doctor with Shady Grove Fertility, will discuss your options in egg freezing, embryo creation, donor options, and IVF.
  • Diana C. Schimmel, Esq., a partner at a Philly and NJ law firm, will discuss the importance of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, co parenting arrangements, and divorce/separation concerns.
  • Liz Vaysman, Esq. from Vaysman Legal will chime in with family building options of adoption, ART law (embryo/surrogacy), and how to access such family building benefits at your workplace.

This event is to open the discussion and remove the stigma around knowing and protecting our options for family building.

There will be drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and dessert from Pretty Tasty Cupcakes provided. This is an inclusive event and all are welcome!
