Saddleback Memorial supports helping people become parents in many ways. Surrogacy continues to be a viable option for many families. Earlier this year, Dr. Jane Frederick, leading Reproductive Endocrinologist in Orange County, generously donated the new Jane L. Frederick, M.D. Bonding Room at Saddleback Memorial. The Bonding Room was recently featured in Fertility Authority’s blog.
The Bonding Room provides parents who have given birth through a surrogate mother a place to stay overnight and bond with their new baby. Parents really need a special place that is theirs and The Women’s Hospital at Saddleback Memorial has created a beautiful area that is truly unique.
“I wanted to erase the stigma and awkwardness that can happen for intended parents after the delivery. I wanted to make sure that this moment--this most important moment--would be the most wonderful time of their lives,” says Frederick.
