“For those who could not otherwise conceive, carry, or give birth to a child, the chance to have a family in itself is incredible,” says Dr. Mark Leondires. “Reproductive science has given us the ability to retrieve sperm and eggs to assess, fertilize and successfully transfer an embryo.”
NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 16, 2019
Dr. Mark Leondires, Founder of Gay Parents To Be® and Medical Director of RMA of Connecticut, has authored the foreword to "Your Future Family: The Essential Guide to Assisted Reproduction" by gestational surrogacy expert Dr. Kim Bergman. "Your Future Family: The Essential Guide to Assisted Reproduction" ($13.46, Conari Press) is available now on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
In "Your Future Family: The Essential Guide to Assisted Reproduction," Dr. Bergman (Senior Partner at Growing Generations) - who helped celebrities Andy Cohen and Ryan Murphy start their families - presents a comprehensive, thoughtful, and easy-to-follow guide on the issues for those who wish to be a parent and are seeking assistance in their family-building journey. Among the myriad challenges to those utilizing assisted reproductive technologies (ART), Dr. Bergman addresses the following:
- The most common challenges involved in your reproductive journey
- Myths surrounding gestational surrogacy
- The key players necessary in the reproductive journey
- The hard costs involved in family-building and where to find relief
“For those who could not otherwise conceive, carry, or give birth to a child, the chance to have a family in itself is incredible,” says Dr. Mark Leondires. “Reproductive science has given us the ability to retrieve sperm and eggs to assess, fertilize and successfully transfer an embryo. Surrogacy has changed the landscape of options for parents-to-be and has helped millions of people become parents.”
Dr. Leondires went through the journey to parenthood with his husband, from choosing an egg donor and working with two gestational carriers. As both a medical expert and drawing from his personal experience, Dr. Leondires is uniquely qualified to write the foreword to Dr. Bergman’s book.
