51-year-old mother of many children agreed to bear her own daughter's child.
Native of North Dakota, 51-year-old Sherry Dixon became a surrogate mother for her own granddaughter. The daughter of a future grandmother, 32-year-old Mandy Stefans, , after several years of trying to get pregnant and having a bad experience with IVF (in vitro fertilization) fell into depression. According to People, Mandy and her husband finally gave up when a girl who was able to get pregnant through artificial insemination had a miscarriage at 20 weeks. The couple by that time had already managed to come up with a name for the baby - Theo.
Mother Mendy helped the couple recover from the tragedy. She proposed her candidacy for the place of a surrogate mother of her own granddaughter. The Stephans family agreed without hesitation. After all, according to doctors, the story of a miscarriage could repeat itself again, and there were no guarantees for the safety of the fetus.
51-year-old Sherry was already a mother of three at the time. She was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. But, despite these obstacles, the doctors allowed her to bear the child. So in November last year, the woman managed to get pregnant on the second attempt. And recently a completely he althy girl was born.
