About Men Having Babies
Men Having Babies is a nonprofit that offers guidance and financial assistance for gay men who want to become fathers. Our mission includes the provision of educational and practical information to assist gay prospective parents achieve biological parenting, and promoting the affordability of surrogacy and other parenting related services for gay men through financial assistance and the encouragement of transparency and customer feedback. We conduct seminars, exhibits and workshops for parents and prospective parents in locations worldwide, and publish user ratings of related agencies and clinics.
Our fund will provide several $10k and $20k grants annually to gay men who require financial assistance to become parents. The fact is that gay men face the most obstacles in their quest for parenting, not the least of which is financial. Heterosexual couples, single women and lesbian couples can become biological parents relatively easily, and those who need more advanced infertility services can approach dozens of foundations that provide financial assistance to infertile people. However to date there were no comparable fund to assist gay men, who are not considered “infertile” even though they need substantial third party assistance in order to become parents.
