Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) Attorney in Ohio
Over the past few decades, perceptions about surrogacy and Assisted Reproductive Technology have changed for the better. While originally little was known about in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and Assisted Reproductive Technologies, these tools have proven repeatedly to be successful alternatives for families who have children by collaborative means.
I am Ellen Essig, Attorney and Counselor, and from my office in Cincinnati, I represent parties involved in the process of building their families in Ohio and across the country using these methods. Regardless of your familial situation, whether you are a single parent, heterosexual couple or same-sex couple, I will make sure your rights and interests are protected throughout the process.
Building Families through Surrogacy

In-vitro fertilization is the out-of-body fertilization of an egg by a sperm. The resulting embryos are then transferred into an intended parent or surrogate.
The first child born through use of Assisted Reproductive Technology was born in 1978. The doubts surrounding the process generally stemmed from concerns over the technology. As those questions have been fully answered in the years that followed, IVF and colloaborative reproduction have become widely accepted.
Laboratories using Assisted Reproductive Technologies continue to improve their methods but it is still important for Intended Parents to do their own research as well. They should know the statistics of their selected laboratory or physician, which are usually available online or upon request from the facility. This research will inform Intended Parents about the success that the lab has had with particular technologies, as well as the success with particular donors and parents grouped by age.

As a family law lawyer since 1986, I now focus my practice on surrogacy and family building through Assisted Reproductive Technologies. It has been incredible to watch the technology improve since the birth of the first "test tube" baby in 1978 and to watch as more parents realize their dream of starting a family.
