While surrogacy is illegal if done in Italy, having a child with the help of a surrogate mother in the U.S. is becoming more popular among Italian gay men. Circle Surrogacy hosted an informational seminar last Fall – about parenting options through surrogacy in the U.S. for Italian and Swiss residents.
Experienced parents and lawyers shared their knowledge with interested parents. Participants also heard directly from an American surrogate mother who gave birth to a baby for an Italian gay couple.
The program included presentations by a surrogate mother from the U.S., Italian fathers and lawyers specializing in international surrogacy and other parenting options for Italian gay men. Additional legal and practical advice was provided by John Weltman, an American gay father and also the founder of Circle Surrogacy, an agency that helps people from around the world to become parents in this manner.
