Infertility is the term health care providers use for Intended Parents who are unable to have a baby after at least one year of trying.
Infertility does not have a single cause as a successful pregnancy is a multi-step chain of events. A problem with any of these steps can lead to infertility.
While there are a variety of ways to treat infertility, Reproductive Alternatives exists to help those individuals who rely upon Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) such as in vitro fertilization, egg or sperm donation and surrogacy, both gestational and traditional. When you rely upon ART to resolve your specific needs, your treatment plan will necessarily require consultation with an attorney to ensure that you are identified as the child's legal parent.
The mechanism to place your name on the birth certificate will be dictated by the place of birth, the specific technology used by the IVF Clinic and whether you are relying on ART as a single or a couple.
