ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI)- Infertility rates go up as couples wait until they are older to have children.  Meanwhile, scientists and specialists in the field are working on solutions.

A new technological practice has arrived, and the Missouri Center for Reproductive Medicine is the only place in the U.S. where it is available.
