I just discovered that The Today Show (on NBC) is planning to air a short documentary tomorrow morning(Thursday, October 12th at 8:09 a.m.) about the struggles of infertile couples. It will discuss the topic of surrogacy (although I'm not sure that surrogacy will be the sole focus). I thought I would pass the information along in case others struggling with miscarriages or infertility would be interested in watching. If you have an opinion on the segment that you would like to share with NBC, you can e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I thought the segment was well done and did a good job of conveying the anguish of losing babies and the importance of being enabled to grieve. It tells the story of a couple who experienced two stillbirths followed by the loss of a premature son after birth and who eventually had three children through the help of a surrogate mother. While interviewing the couple, Meredith Vieira shared that she has experienced five miscarriages, which I did not know. Here is a link where you can view the segment if you missed it:
