My Journey to Pregnancy, Giving Birth at Age 50
Some people don’t believe me when I tell them that my daughter was a five-year-old frozen embryo and that I was 50 when I delivered her. What to do with two remaining frozen embryos left over from past fertility treatments. Like thousands of women going through infertility treatments, I had gone through years of treatments including IVFs and many others. The embryos were there – frozen in my fertility doctor’s lab. When I was 49, the office called and told me that the embryos remained frozen, and reminded me that I had one more year or the embryos would need to be destroyed.
I thought of the embryos as part of me and just couldn’t give the order to destroy them. I drove across the state to my doctor’s office on a Friday to have the embryos implanted the next day. Well, that little five-year-old frozen embryo successfully implanted and developed into my daughter, who is now almost 15. Today most fertility clinics allow the donation of unused embryos to the clinic, or to an embryo adoption service. Increasingly, families are turning to embryo adoption to build a family.
E. Parker Herring is a Board Certified family law specialist who has practiced in Wake County, N.C. for more than 32 years. The multiple adoption journeys of her own family and her personal experiences in fertility treatments continue to be the driving force behind her working in the areas of adoption and assisted reproduction.
