Fertility & Adoption Conference Coming to IL
The First Anuual Fertility and Adoption Conference will be held in Glenview, IL on Saturday, August 13 at the Wyndham Glenview Suites from 8am-5pm
ORLANDO Fla., May 10, 2011 – Empowering the Journey is the theme this summer when A Family of My Own (AFOMO) comes to the Chicago area on Saturday, August 13, 2011, for a one-day infertility and adoption conference that promises to touch lives.
A Family of My Own (AFOMO) will be the conference that will include local and nationally recognized, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors to those wanting to become parents. The event features educational seminars dealing with topics such as third party and surrogate services, starting the adoption process and how to prepare your body to have a baby through holistic treatments. The day will also include a time for Q & A as well as demonstration classes for acupuncture and yoga in addition to a home study workshop.
“Our goal is to provide a comfortable environment where people will have face-time with the physicians, agencies and experts with the knowledge about issues dealing with adoption and medically assisted programs,” said Preya Shivdat, director and founder of A Family of My Own.
“We are proud to be supporters and speakers for this much needed event,” said Dr. Karande of InVia Fertility located in Hoffman Estates, IL. “Education is such an important part of infertility because there are so many options available that people don’t know about and it can help lessen the heartache when you have direction.”
“Infertility has no race, religion or gender,” said Regina Townsend, founder and executive director of The Broken Brown Egg. “We are excited to be partnering with AFOMO for this inaugural event that will bring people from all walks of life together to share stories and gain support.”
The event, presented by AFOMO Marketing Group, is scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2011 in Glenview, IL at the Wyndham Glenview Suites and will attract nearly 200 attendees and will include a day of educational sessions, workshops, breakfast and lunch.
