The doctor is in! On this week's episode of "ABCs of Surrogacy," we are pleased to have Dr. Said Daneshmand, a Reproductive Endocrinologist and the Practice Director with Fertility Center of Las Vegas. Dr. Daneshmand will be discussing the various components of surrogacy from a medical perspective, including what makes a good surrogacy mother, preserving one's fertility, understanding the causes of infertility and other fertility-related issues. Dr. Daneshmand joined FCLV in 1999, and was instrumental in developing the region's first egg freezing program. As practice director, his special interest lies in developing protocols for patients undergoing IVF, especially those patients with previous unsuccessful cycles. Some of the questions which will be asked during this episode were written by fans of the show's Facebook page. Don't miss this very exciting show!
Of all the critical components involved in a surrogacy journey, the role of the Reproductive endocrinologist is surely on one of the most important. The RE is the physician who oversees all medical aspects related to fertility -- egg retrievals, prescribing the necessary medications for egg donor and surrogate mother, overseeing the creation of embryos using sperm and egg, and the ultimate transfer of an embryo into the surrogate mother. This week, our guest is Dr. Collin Smikle, the RE of Laurel Fertility, located in San Francisco, CA.
Dr. Smikle will be discussing the role a RE plays in a surrogacy journey, as well as provide an extensive overview of the various components of IVF, including egg donation and the medical process involved with creating an embryo. Dr. Smikle will also give his opinion on what qualities makes an ideal surrogate mother.

The entire world thrives on our ignorance and hatred of self. If Black Women remembered who we are, the entire global system of Black Female Hatred would come to a screeching halt. This entire system is built on the enforced ignorance and fraudulent inferior position of Black Wombnhood. Absent our perpetual willingness to die on our knees vs living on our feet, there would be no white or male supremacy.
Black Matriarchal Herstory lessons are a must, if black Wombn are going to not only survive but thrive and completely transform our lives in this system. Remembering who we are is possible only via study of our Origins and our Spirituality. Join us for the Angry Deva's "Dark Goddess 101: Practical Dark Wisdom" course where we introduce the Dark Divine Feminine, what is Darkness, Black Wombn's Herstory 101 and the Inherent Biological Superiority of the Black Womb.
Our story has not been told, it has been willfully omitted from us by white male patriarchs, and black male patriarchs alike. The divinity of Motherhood, the Sovereignty of the Maiden and the authority of the Crone are innate components of who we are.
