End the stigma of infertility by choosing surrogacy
Infertility. It’s a loaded word and stirs a lot of emotions. But chances are, whether you are aware of it or not, you know someone or a couple who wants to get pregnant but is struggling to get or stay pregnant. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 10% of women (6.1 million) in the United States ages 15-44 are in this situation. For men, their infertility accounts for 20-30% of all infertility cases and contributes to 50% of cases overall.
Infertility means not being able to get pregnant after one year of trying (or six months if a woman is 35 or older). Women who can get pregnant but are unable to stay pregnant may also be infertile.
In a recent study by the National Institutes of Health conducted with 177 couples who were infertile, 15% said they felt they were isolated in society and 60% thought they’d achieve acceptance after having a baby.
The answer for many who struggle with infertility is surrogacy. At Agency for Surrogacy Solutions we know this better than most agency. Both our founders, Lauri de Brito and Kathryn Kaycoff, faced this issue and then made the solution their life’s work.
