Quotes

"Surrogacy has fascinated me for years, especially after the birth of my own children.

The gift those young women were able to give sparked the idea that I could be a surrogate. From that point on I just had a burning desire to do it."

AIHW spokesperson David Ellwood, a professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at Griffith University in Queensland, said: "The drop in stillbirth rates over time for older women may suggest that some interventions introduced in recent years to the care of pregnant women in later pregnancy have been of benefit, and that further reductions in stillbirth may be possible, but further investigations are needed to determine best practice." - APN NEWSDESK
