It was 2013 and after many failed attempts in getting pregnant with husband Kevin–GloZell went to the doctor to find a cause. After several tests, the doctor told Glozell, “There is nothing we can do for you”. Glozell was told she had “endometriosis”, a condition in which the lining her uterus began growing on the outside. GloZell then went to 2-3 more doctors for other opinions and her friend, Wendy Wilson-Miller suggested Dr. Bradford Kolb. Dr. Kolb suggested she try finding a surrogate to cary her and her husband’s biological child. Global was all in! Crazy enough, it was during this time in which GloZell found out she would be interviewing President Barack Obama!

Glozell said she is doing this to detox her body and hopefully her eggs will grow.
“Honestly, I was just thinking—What can I do to help my body? Because I had not 1—not 2, but 3 different doctors tell me it’s not gonna happen. So I have to take it upon myself to do my best…I believe it’s gonna work, I’m gonna try—at the end of the day, they can’t say I didn’t try.”
Glozell Completes 5 Cycles of In Vitro Fertilization Treatments!
Glozell opts for “V-Steaming”, an ancient Korean treatment that releases the toxins in your vagina. At this point, Glozell has completed 5 cycles of in vitro fertilization. These invasive treatments require egg retrieval surgeries. Glozell wasn’t sure if she should do a 6th cycle because she only has 3 embryos left. These are the only embryos left that can be transferred into the surrogate. Finally, Glozell decides she has a great team of people behind her and opts to place the embryos in the surrogate.
