Dancing with the Stars Celebrity Offers Encouragement to Women with Infertility
We recently took a look
at a case of celebrity infertility involving Dancing with the Stars
star Marissa Jaret Winokur. The television actress suffered from cervical cancer that made it impossible for her to have her own child with husband Judah Miller. However, the couple has chosen to use surrogacy
to bring a baby into their home and are expecting that child to join them soon. In an update provided by Celebrity Baby Blog
, Winokur spoke more candidly about the infertility issues that she has faced. She then offered encouragement to all other women who are dealing with infertility. She says:
"You can find a way to do this. If you want to have a baby, you can adopt, there's in vitro, there's surrogacy."
Winokur opted for surrogacy in her case because the cancer that she dealt with makes it unable for her to carry a child of her own. However, she is quick to point out that the child is biologically hers. She also notes that she's experiencing a few of those great mom-to-be moments like feeling the baby kick for the first time, although she's experiencing them in a way that she didn't originally plan.
