Shields speaks at
biotechnology convention



Brooke Shields says advances in biotechnology helped her become a mother.

Speaking at a meeting at BIO 2004, an annual international biotechnology industry convention, the 39-year-old actress said in vitro fertilization helped her become pregnant with her daughter, 1-year-old Rowan. She said she was considering going through the treatment again to have a second child.

Shields entertained the audience Wednesday with stories of how she and her husband, Chris Henchy, found creative ways to administer the daily injections that are required for in vitro fertilization.
