    How to Become a Fertility Nurse

    The stress of the holidays is a topic that has appeared with regularity in articles and newsletters since 1979 when I began working as a psychotherapist with infertility patients. Rightfully so. Infertility is demanding and stressful. The Holidays are demanding and stressful. And in this case, one plus one equals way more than 2.

    Some women can't get pregnant because they don't secrete enough LH and FSH at the right time during the cycle and, as a result, they don't ovulate.

    Until the last decade, there was little a couple could do if they suffered from recurrent pregnancy losses. Miscarriages that couldn't be attributed to chromosomal defects, hormonal problems or abnormalities of the uterus were labeled "unexplained," and couples would continue to get pregnant, only to suffer time and again as they lost their babies. New research, however, has provided information on the causes of the heretofore unexplained pregnancy losses allowing more effective treatment enabling women to carry their babies to term.

    Maryland is a great state for surrogacy. In Maryland, both gestational (a surrogate who is not biologically related to the child) and traditional surrogacy (a surrogate who agrees to be artificially inseminated with the intended father’s sperm and to carry the pregnancy to term), is possible for married, unmarried, and gay individuals.

    The cost for undergoing a surrogacy process is significant, between $35-$45,000 for traditional surrogacy (using the surrogate’s ovum) and between $70,000-$90,000 for gestational surrogacy (using the intended mother’s ovum or donor ovum). Often times, to try to reduce costs, parents will cut corners. One avenue where parents have tried to reduce their fees, is to try and do the legal aspects of the surrogacy process themselves. While this method might work for some, in general it’s a better idea to have legal representation throughout your surrogacy process, both for your own protection and the surrogate’s protection.

    “The therapist that I fired claimed to be an expert but she was not. I could tell that she had looked up a few things on the internet and was pretending that she knew what I needed her to know.”
