The story of an IVF

Almost every day, I receive visits from patients who come to our clinic to introduce me to their children. I am really glad they do so because we all have done our best so that those children can be born. Today I want to explain what the process of In Vitro Fertilization consists of,...

Surrogate Motherhood

Surrogate motherhood is a very important and controversial subject which can be contemplated from very different angles.
