The Miscarriage Manual: Coping with the Emotional Aspects of Pregnancy Loss by Elizabeth Carney

Miracles and Memories Family-Building Pins

A guide to help you cope with the emotional aspects of pregnancy loss. This was given to INCIID in 1995 by a nurse who experienced the loss of a full-term baby just after she was born. Although it is an older article, the sentiments are timeless and comforting in the knowledge you are not alone.Please give this to anyone you know who has lost a pregnancy. This article is also excellent information for friends, families and loved ones of close to anyone who has lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or just after birth. The more people who understand what to say or more importantly what not to say, the better off those who have lost a child will be.

Maryland: A Friendly State for Surrogacy

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.

Legal Representation During Surrogacy Process: Don't Cut Corners

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.
