6 Test-Tube Children And Surrogate Mothers

Test-Tube Children And Surrogate Mothers

Posted on May 15, 2012 by team


20 % of Kazakhstan population have infertility problems. It means each fifth couple…

Many families have children only thanks to IVF program. Some others use services of surrogate mothers and they do not want to be photographed or interviewed being afraid of the evil eye. They say that society still doesn’t accept the children who were born in a way different from the traditional one.

Rimma agreed to tell her story to inspire other women who lost their hope to have children. Before IVF she worked in a construction company, her husband was a driver. After giving birth to Polina she left her job to pay more attention to her daughter.

She doesn’t understand women who say that they do not want to have children, or do not want yet. Happiness for her has always been connected with maternity.

She’s been dreaming of children since being a child herself. But many disappointments waited for her. She got pregnant but couldn’t give a birth to a baby… Her husband supported her as he could. Though it was never enough. She envied moms for many years. IVF was a chance despite all difficulties related to it. There is an IVF center in Almaty where she finally called.

    Fertility worldwide is on the decline. The population boom peaked around 1970. Now, it’s just because there are so many people that even if you have a birthrate just over 2.0, the numbers of humans will continue to increase. Fertility rates in other species (specifically amphibians, but also many fish, reptiles and mammals) are also declining. Leeching chemicals from plastics are acting like estrogens, effectively feminizing some species of fish and amphibians. Other chemicals in the environment are causing mutations in sperm cells, rendering many infertile. But I’m a neo-malthusian so this doesn’t bother me.

    ” Each day they thank God and the favorite doctor for the happiness to be parents. ”
    WTF??? Thank the doctor, and the years of effort of the scientists, not some invisible magic man, of whom there is no evidence of!!

      You’re wrong my friend, you can’t prove God doesn’t exist. Don’t use your brainwashed school book knowledge.
      – Love and peace

        haha – it’s a tie – You also can’t prove that god exists. No one wins – no one loose. But I’ve heard of a Flying Spaghetti Monster ;)
