U.S. Lags in Global Measure of Preterm Births

The New York Times,  May 2, 2012

Although American hospitals excel at saving premature infants, the United States is similar to developing countries in the percentage of mothers who give birth before their child is due, according to a new study. It does worse than any western European country and considerably worse than Japan or the Scandinavian countries. That stems from the unique American combination of many pregnant teenagers and many women over 35 giving birth, sometimes to twins or triplets implanted after in vitro fertilization, the authors said.

Lesbian Custody Battle in Florida Could Redefine Law on Egg Donation, Sperm Donation

New York Daily News,  Mar 4, 2012

A custody battle in Florida between two lesbians could fuel the growing national debate over the definition of motherhood and might force state lawmakers to reconsider a 19-year-old law regarding the rights of sperm and egg donors. One partner donated an egg that was fertilized and implanted in the other. That woman gave birth in 2004, nine years into their relationship. The couple separated two years later, and the birth mother eventually left Florida with the child without telling her former lover.

IVF a Fertile Niche for Fertility Finance Companies

Wall Street Journal,  Feb 24, 2012

At a time when many traditional lenders are struggling, companies that join forces with doctors to make loans for in vitro fertilization, egg harvesting and other fertility treatments say their business is thriving. One reason: Fertility-finance companies are getting a boost from the banking industry's retrenchment.

Cancer Treatment Now Includes Fertility Planning

Women's E News,  Feb 22, 2012

Until recently, standard cancer treatments have not included female fertility preservation as a joint concern. If cancer was discovered, regardless of the patient's age, it was treated as quickly and as aggressively as deemed necessary (chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation being the primary tools), and that was that; fertility was not generally a part of the conversation. But as awareness grows about the potential effects of treatments on female fertility, and as fertility-preservation techniques become more sophisticated, these discussions are changing.

Many Young People Think They Can't Get Pregnant: Study

The Globe and Mail,  Feb 8, 2012

Women in their 30s can’t escape dire warnings about having kids “before it’s too late.” For young women, though, the message about infertility may be too loud and not altogether clear. As many as 19 per cent of women aged 18 to 29 believe they’re infertile, according to a study from the Guttmacher Institute, a New York-based non-profit organization devoted to reproductive health. But in reality, only 6 per cent of women in this age group are likely to have trouble conceiving within a year of trying (the medical definition of infertility).
