Is surrogacy an answer for Chinese couples wanting to have a baby?

We found an interesting article about Chinese couples looking for surrogacy. The article addresses many questions about health, culture and law. It is very important to understand that the decision to use a surrogate involves both, sentimental and emotional issues that intended parents need consider. It is also clear that surrogacy could be the right answer for many Chinese couples looking for a family, be it their first baby and/or a second one.

Indian surrogate mothers and their families´ support

We found a short but powerful article related to Indian surrogate mothers and their relation with their own biological families. In America much of this type of decision-making depends on family values; but in the end, the decision usually is seen as an individual one. For intended parents, it is very important to reach the perfect mother for the perfect situation. http://www.ptinews.com/news/4626481_-Walk–for-surrogate-mothers-held-in…

Court orders embryos created by woman & boyfriend to be given to woman over boyfriend’s objections

Objections In a case that we have seen before in Texas, aka Roman v. Roman(link is external), a Chicago court is heating up the issue again with another embryo dispute. In this most recent case, the Chicago woman is now allowed to use the embryos despite the boyfriend’s desire not to procreate. What are your thoughts on this? It appears that the case matches the Roman case that went all the way to the US Supreme Court via writ, but was rejected. Read more below from the Chicago Tribune article excerpt: A Cook County judge this morning awarded custody of frozen embryos to.

IVF and infertility by the numbers

Assisted Reproductive Technology Use on the Rise Great article from Forbes contributor, David Sable below. Apparently, he is not a fan of IVF or the numbers…thoughts? As investors we “do the math.” In observance of National Infertility Awareness Week (NAIW), a little IVF math: The latest Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology annual report shows 61,740 babies were born from in vitro fertilization procedures performed in 2012. Since the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports approximately 4 million births per year, that means that between one and two percent of all births in the United States now occur as a result of IVF. How many of us.

You are here HOME investigation into fertility clinic worker who switched sperm ‘inconclusive’

In fact, according to BioNews, the report continues as follows: Lab technician Thomas Lippert, now deceased, was hired to work at the University of Utah’s Community Laboratory in 1988 until 1993, when, for reasons unknown, his employment ended. The facility was adjacent to the Reproductive Medical Technologies fertility clinic, where Mr. Lippert may also have worked. Allegations surfaced in 2013 that Mr. Lippert had inseminated one of the patients, Pamela Branum, with his own sperm after the family conducted genetic tests that showed that Branum’s husband was not the genetic father of their daughter. The family contacted the University of Utah.

Fertility after chemo – What can be done for women?

Just because I (Frederick Gaston, Lead Counsel and Founder) practice law does not mean that I am not forever fascinated by the medical aspects of Assisted Reproduction. So, what if women did not have to resort to assisted reproduction after chemo? It looks like “freezing” their ovaries may provide women and their families other options. According to NBC News, A new approach that “freezes” the ovaries for a few months may help some young women have babies after they’ve undergone chemotherapy for cancer, researchers reported on Friday. The treatment stops the ovaries from producing eggs while the chemotherapy is working, then allows the woman’s.

Chr claims flawed national ivf outcomes by cdc and sart

Omega Family Global realizes flawed reporting of fertility success rates can occur.  For this reason, we work with only trusted and known fertility clinics. Those of us in the fertility industry have known for some time how inconsistent the reporting of national IVF outcomes by clinics has been over the years.  With many patients relying on this information, despite warnings from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART), some consistency amongst reporting seems like a no brainer. For example, as reported by the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR), the members of this clinic argue that any remedies to the reporting to.

California is the place to be for surrogacy…again

While we do not always prefer to toot our own horns here in California, the following piece regarding the state of surrogacy in Louisiana again proves that California IS the place to be. Let’s be honest though, for those of us working in the fertility industry, the decision by Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, to veto legal surrogacy in Louisiana actually dodges the hopes of any prospective intended parents, surrogates, and IVF physicians alike located in Louisiana. But politics are politics, as the Governor stated in his official letter following the veto: “Despite the good intentions and hard efforts of the author, this legislation still.

Huffington post article – Why is egg donation not regulated?

In a “fluff” piece by the Huffington Post, we get the sense that the coverage should actually be called, “Why are egg donation agencies not regulated? “ After reviewing the piece and listening to the stories, it appears that the coverage should focus more on the physicians who are medically treating the egg donors and not the agencies.  Who controls the cycle?  Who monitors the egg donors regarding hyper-stimulation? Egg donor agencies are doing exactly what they have always been doing – matching egg donors with parents and are covered by each state’s Business and Professions code.  Should egg donor agencies do.

Gay fathers in texas denied parenthood

A recent article in the Huffington Post describing the perils of a gay couple underscores the importance of good legal advice prior to embarking on new family creation.  This situation would not have happened were these intended parents working with a surrogate in California. They were denied being the parents of their own biological children because Texas has a ban on gay marriage.  Furthermore, they are not able to co-adopt the other’s biological child.  These new fathers remain in a legal quagmire. Omega Family Global’s Chief Counsel, Frederick Gaston, had this to say “This is indeed a sad outcome. Had this.
