By , 73 percent were single transfers. Overall twin delivery rate was 14 percent. As expected, perinatal outcomes were significantly better for singleton than twin pregnancies, although the latter also had generally favourable outcomes. It is our view that this approach to shared motherhood IVF for lesbian couples — that is, OHSS-free stimulation with single blastocyst transfer — provides a safe and effective treatment with reassuring obstetric and perinatal outcomes. The technique has come a long way since it was first reported in in a small Spanish study.
We favour the term shared motherhood IVF, as this better reflects the emotional connection patients hope to achieve with the child. Because of national regulations, shared motherhood IVF is not allowed in France, where fertility patients must have a clear diagnosis of infertility to receive the treatment, Germany and many other countries. However, it is practised in the UK, Spain and Belgium within the regulatory framework.
In our study, 12 couples 10 percent were cross-border patients living in countries where this treatment was not permitted or routinely practised France: 3, Sweden: 2, Denmark: 1, Norway: 1, Ireland: 1, Bulgaria: 1, Switzerland: 1, Singapore: 1, New Zealand In time we feel that shared motherhood IVF will become more widely adopted worldwide. In the meantime, studies on mother-child relationships will become important to understand the psychological wellbeing of children born through this emerging medical procedure.

As the Baileys tell Motherly, there are also emotional challenges to the arrangement. Now with another daughter on the way thanks to another round of reciprocal IVF, Christina says it was simply the perfect way for her and Katie to build their family. There are many reasons I love summer—pool days, beach days, lake days, pretty much anything that involves me and my family all submersing ourselves in a body of water to beat the heat.
But one thing that always signals the start of the season is getting outside and grilling for my family. As a mom of four kiddos, I'm always looking for the healthiest ingredients possible—ones lure my kids to eat their vegetables and proteins. Firing up the grill gets me out of my hot, cramped kitchen and into the great outdoors. But more importantly, with the summer bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables, it's so much easier for me to create and serve healthy meals to my kids.
And those condiments aren't full of empty calories and refined or added sugars. I love the entire Primal Kitchen collection because it's full of healthy ingredients like avocado oil, collagen, oil of oregano and apple cider vinegar—with zero containing dairy, gluten, grain, refined sugar or soy. Say it with me, folks: Yum. As the first-ever avocado-based mayonnaise, this one is made with organic cage-free eggs, has no sugar, is Whole Approved and Paleo and Keto friendly. Slather it on a bun or throw it in a chicken salad for a healthy spin on classic mayo you'll always feel comfortable serving to your family.
Since my husband embarked on his Keto journey, we've learned a lot of shocking things about the ingredients in our favorite food, but none were more shocking than the fact that regular ketchup—you know, the stuff we throw on everything all year long—is laden with a crazy amount of sugar. But finding a version that actually tastes good and has no sugar added was no easy task… until I discovered Primal Kitchen's organic version.
Tastes just like the classic version we know and love but with zero sugar and features organic California-grown tomatoes! Is there anything better than a delicious summer salad drenched in ranch? Or some grilled chicken with a ranch drizzle?
This one is a whole lot more delicious thanks to its avocado oil base infused with monosaturated fats and organic eggs. What's not in there? The guilt-inducing ingredients. Zero buttermilk, dairy, gluten, soy, canola oil or refined sugars. Bonus: You can use it as a marinade, too.
Nothing says summertime quite like the smell of barbecue chicken or ribs, and now you can transform your old full of sugar recipe to something that is just as tasty, but minus all those unwanted ingredients, like corn syrup. Although it's unsweetened, it's full of smoky flavor—making it a go-to in our household.

Thank you for supporting the brands that support Motherly and mamas. Baby Archie is a busy little guy. All eyes were on him at his recent christening, and when he showed up to watch his dad play at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day he and his cute cousins stole the show. The main event is supposed to be Prince Harry and Prince William facing off as opponents in the charity polo match, but really, Archie was the star. The newest little royal was comfy in his mama's arms on Wednesday, getting lots of love from the Duchess as the Dukes of Sussex and Cambridge played polo.
This marks Archie's first public outing and he wore a cute little white romper for the casual event. His mom wore a simple olive green Lisa Marie Fernandez dress and Givenchy aviator sunglasses. Baby Archie was chilling with his mama while his cousin Prince Louis was hanging with his own mama just behind them and seemed to be a lot more active than little Archie. Being an organ donor means you can give someone the gift of life after your death.

And in the case of a Brazilian woman who donated her uterus, it meant giving another woman the gift of motherhood. For the first time in America, a baby has been born after growing in a transplanted uterus of a deceased donor, thanks to the Cleveland Clinic. As CNN reports, a baby girl was born in June after her mother received a uterus transplant from a non-living donor. The mom, who is in her mids, was born without a uterus. The process took more than a year and after her baby was born via c-section she opted to have the transplanted uterus removed which makes sense, as the transplant requires the mother to take anti-rejection drugs.
The treatment begins with a round of IVF, where eggs are harvested and fertilized. Then, the uterus transplant is performed, followed by doses of immunosuppressive drugs before an embryo can be implanted. The first baby born after a uterus transplant from a deceased donor is now a toddler. That birth, which happened in Brazil, made worldwide headlines in December after the details of the gestation and birth which happened the previous year were published in the medical journal Lancet.
The story is made headlines around the world because while babies have been born after uterus transplants from living donors before , this is the first time a transplant from a deceased donor has been successful. This is huge, because as the doctors behind the transplant note, this opens "a path to healthy pregnancy for all women with uterine factor infertility, without need of living donors or live donor surgery.
The donor was a year-old who died from a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke. She had three children, all of whom were born vaginally. This made her a good candidate as a uterus donor. Her uterus was transplanted into a year-old woman who was born without a uterus. The Associated Press reports that the woman a psychologist was initially apprehensive about the transplant according to the transplant team's lead doctor, Dr.
Dani Ejzenberg, but is now living proof that this can be done. The year-old did a round of IVF four months before the transplant, which resulted in several embryos. The were cryopreserved, and seven months after the transplant the woman became pregnant after the first single embryo transfer. The pregnancy went well and at 36 weeks the woman welcomed a baby girl by c-section.
The doctors removed the transplanted uterus at the same time so that the mother could stop taking anti-rejection drugs. These success stories are certainly encouraging for researchers. While a few transplants from living donors have resulted in births, being able to accept organs from deceased donors would make more uteruses available. While organ donation usual saves lives, in these cases, it helped create a new one and gave families a life they thought they might never have. It has been updated. This success story is certainly encouraging for researchers, and now the Brazilian team is planning two more uterus transplants from deceased donors as part of their study.
