Maybe Baby Class Overview:

The Maybe Baby series is designed for prospective parents, singled or partnered, who are considering parenthood and interested in learning more about the options for building a family.   The series covers a wide range of topics, including readiness, overview of adoption, assisted reproduction, and surrogacy; financial and legal issues; building a support network; decision making as a couple; considerations for single parenting; and the joys and challenges of being an LGBT-headed family.  The class is designed to provide a balance of active discussion and sharing, as well as to gain practical, accurate information that helps set the foundation for moving forward. 


Location:

The conference will take place at Georgetown Day School's High School Campus, 4200 Davenport St NW, Washington, DC 20016.


The remaining Maybe Baby classes will be held at the Wisconsin Place Community Center, 5311 Friendship Blvd in Chevy Chase, MD 20815.

The cost is $250 per couple, $150 for singles.  For current RFDC members the cost is $225 per couple, or $125 for singles. 


Your Maybe Baby registration fee includes attendance at the conference, one-year membership in Rainbow Families DC, and three additional sessions of 3 hours each to cover the topics not addressed in the workshop sessions at the conference.
