7  Artificial insemination, or AI, ◦ is a fertilization procedure in which sperm is artificially placed into a woman’s cervix (intracervical insemination) or uterus (intrauterine insemination).

8  In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the joining of a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm in a laboratory dish. In vitro means “outside the body.” Fertilization means the sperm has attached to and entered the egg.

9  Surrogate motherhood involves the services of a woman who agrees to carry/gestate a child for the express purpose of surrendering that child to the intending/commissioning couple upon the birth of the child.

10  Ovum transfer is a procedure that takes a healthy, fertilized egg cell and transplants it into the uterus of another woman.

11  Ectopic means "in the wrong place", and is a pregnancy that develops outside of your uterus (womb). pregnancy#ixzz2tIC3i8uF pregnancy#ixzz2tIC3i8uF

12  The egg normally spends about five days traveling down the tube from the ovary to your uterus, where it implants and begins to develop. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, this doesn't happen, and your pregnancy starts to develop in the tube. This may happen due to damage to your fallopian tube, which causes your tube to be too narrow for the egg to reach its destination. pregnancy#ixzz2tIBxwsLC pregnancy#ixzz2tIBxwsLC


14  Public Domestic Adoption in Canada Public domestic adoption refers to any adoption arranged by a public or government agency such as the Children's Aid Society.

15  Adopting through a public agency is much more tightly controlled than going through a private agency.public agency private agency  As a prospective adoptive parent, you have fewer choices. The focus of public agencies is on the safety and welfare of the child.  As a result, the priority is in finding the right set of parents for a child rather than the right child for a set of parents.

16  The Costs There are usually no costs involved in adopting through a public agency

17  The fees for a private domestic adoption vary considerably and can run anywhere from about $10,000-20,000.  The variation depends on how quickly or easily you can find a child, what method you use to do this, and where the child lives.

18  The Process  The key difference is that in private adoption the wait for a healthy newborn is much shorter and prospective adoptive couples (and birth mothers) have much more control over the process than with public adoptionpublic adoption
