Elizabeth Banks: Her Tale of Infertility and Surrogacy

How hard is it to play a pregnant woman on TV and in movies?

a blog by Infertile Naomi, January 16, 2012

I always wonder how actresses privately struggling with infertility can play a pregnant woman in a movie or television show. It seems like the more you have difficulties conceiving, the harder it is to be around pregnant women. I was thinking about this topic when I came across an article about actress Elizabeth Banks and her struggle with infertility.

According to the article in Lucky Magazine, Banks and her husband (Max Handelman), tried unsuccessfully to have a baby saying that “it was a womb issue … her embryos wouldn’t implant.” She later turned to surrogacy to conceive her child and became a mom to baby Felix this past year.
