Are You or Someone You Know 
Trying to Have a Baby? Make Parenthood Possible.

Thank you to all those who participated and attended the Orlando, Florida conference!

There were over 40 local, national and internationally known fertility, wellness and adoption experts gathered in Greater Orlando to present A Family of My Own Fertility & Adoption Conference.

This is the largest FREE family building event in Florida!   A top-notch event to learn more about family building options whether you are trying for your first child or your next.

15 Info Sessions – Exhibit Hall – Over $20,000 in Giveaways and Drawings!

Topics presented include the latest fertility options for women and men to promote conception, and how to adopt sooner, less expensively and more successfully.

“Many women and men share with us that they have spent months or longer trying to navigate and understand their options,” explain Liz Carellas and Preya Shivdat, Co-Directors of A Family of My Own. “In a few hours, singles and couples can learn all of their options in one place, allowing them to pursue their dreams of having a family more quickly.”


A Familogo-drive-4-mens-healthly of My Own supported the Drive for Men’s Health!  Over the summer, a cross-country adventure from Florida to NYC celebrating Men’s Health Week hit the road in an all-electric Tesla, stopping to charge and talk to men.

We’re super excited Dr. Parekattil and Dr. Brahmbhatt, global pioneers in the field of urology, will be speaking at ‘A Family of My Own Conference’ in Orlando, FL about men’s fertility and reproductive health.

In addition, Dr. Mark P. Trolice, Founder and Director of Vivere-Winter Park Fertility Lab, and Orlando conference speaker, will discuss how to maximize your chances with IVF.

In May 2014, Dr. Trolice made international news with an article in ‘Fertility and Sterility’, a journal of the respected American Society for Reproductive Medicine. His care and protocol helped an Orlando, FL woman, at the age of 46, become the oldest mother to conceive with her own eggs through IVF and deliver a healthy son.

What are they saying about our events?

“I’m not sure if you remember me and my husband, but we talked to you at the Washington, DC event.  After 10 attempts with IVF, I am expecting a baby boy tomorrow.  He’s not planning to arrive thus far, but we are very anxious to meet him.  Thanks for all that you do to help those of us who go through this journey to have hope and resources to make tough decisions.”  H
