Becoming a mother through modern medicine

Nikki Bomasuto's journey to motherhood began six years ago.

When the miracle of motherhood doesn't happen naturally, modern medicine can offer a solution.

"I'm the only guy that it's okay to say 'I got your wife pregnant' and I don't get shot," says Dr. Robert Kiltz of the CNY Fertility Center.

In many cases, couples turn to people like Dr. Kiltz to get solutions to infertility. However these days many women are delaying motherhood, whether it is for financial reasons, to further their career, or because of other personal reasons.

"We're seeing so many women in their 30's and early 40's that haven't found Mr. Right and now what do they do," says Dr. Robert Kiltz of the CNY Fertility Center. When that happens, and the desire to become a mother is unwavering, modern medicine can offer a solution.

One option is to select a sperm donor and undergo an intrauterine insemination, or an IUI. NBC3's Megan Coleman talked to a Syracuse woman who did just that.

Nikki Bomasuto's journey to motherhood began six years ago. She was 36, hadn’t found her Mr. Right, but still had a burning desire to become a mother.

With the help of Dr. Kiltz, she selected a Mr. Right from a sperm bank and and before long became pregnant with her now 4-year-old son Samuel. "It's was the hardest choice and the bravest thing I've ever done. But it's been the best gift and I don't know how to have enough gratitude. I get to be a mom."
