Lean on Me: Exploring and Navigating Surrogacy Supports

August 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

On the path to parenthood, some parents-to-be will need an egg donor and gestational carrier.

This Shaping Parenthood workshop will focus on how to access surrogacy supports in Ottawa and internationally, and will feature a panel who have explored this path to parenthood.


Shaping Parenthood is a partner project between the Ten Oaks Project and Kind Space, and will be a monthly discussion/speaker series for 2SLGBTQ+ communities in Ottawa to explore and reflect on the possibilities, challenges, and appreciation of queering family-making and child-raising. Our hope is to create more spaces that centre the family-making needs of 2SLGBTQ+ parents and parents-to-be in Ottawa, and the series will include topics that may be of interest to those currently planning and puzzling their way through/towards parenthood.


25OneCommunity is a physically accessible space with an elevator to the second floor and all-gender accessible washrooms. If there’s anything we can do to make the space more accessible for you, don’t hesitate to give us a shout at info@tenoaksproject.org.
