New Tang Dynasty: Success Stories for Beating Infertility

Did you miss Monday’s broadcast of Heather Pelz’s story on New Tang Dynasty (NTD TV)?

Heather has had a very special experience with infertility. At age 44, she wanted to conceive a child using her own eggs, an event that has less than one per cent chance of success (chances of conceiving at age 44 is deemed to be less than one to five per cent; the possibility of conceiving a baby with the mother’s own eggs at that age is even lower).

Heather gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Hunter just prior to her 45th birthday.

Chinese couple Mei Ling and Felix have also beaten the infertility odds. Mei Ling’s biological condition made her chances of conception to be around 10 per cent. With fertility treatment, she is now happily carrying her first child.
