Une Américaine de 51 ans a décidé d’apporter son soutien à sa fille qui souffre d’infertilité. La maman s’est proposée pour porter l’enfant de sa fille et va donc accoucher de sa propre petite-fille, rapportait le Washington Post jeudi 25 juin.

Breanna et Aaron Lockwood ont traversé d’innombrables épreuves avant de trouver une solution pour avoir un enfant. « Notre bébé arrivera au monde grâce à une mère porteuse. Et ce petit miracle est très spécial : ma maman portera et accouchera de notre enfant », déclare Breanna sur son compte Instagram.

Avant de s’en remettre à la gestation pour autrui (GPA), le couple a fait face à de nombreuses déceptions et désillusions dont deux fausses couches, des échecs de transferts d’embryons, une grossesse extra-utérine et un nombre colossal d’injections et de prises de sang.

Alors Julie, la mère de Breanna, a passé tous les tests préliminaires à la GPA et porte aujourd’hui leur fille depuis cinq mois. Sa naissance est prévue pour le 12 novembre.

you ladies heard it first! but announced today on our personal page. This was a big step for me. Thinking and praying for each and every one of you! They say, “It takes a village to raise a child”, but for some it can take a village to HAVE a child… ⠀ ⠀ We are happy to announce, finally, …⠀ BABY LOCKWOOD IS ON THE WAY! ⠀ ⠀ Made with a lot of love, and a little bit of science…⠀ Baby Lockwood will be brought into this world via GESTATIONAL CARRIER, and this little miracle’s carrier is quite a special one. ⠀ ⠀ MY MOM.⠀ My mom will be carrying and delivering our baby!⠀ ⠀ The biggest supporter in my life is giving us our biggest blessing. My beautiful mama is carrying her first grandchild, Aaron and my biological child, as a gestational carrier!⠀ ⠀ Aaron and I had our reproductive DNA taken, fertilized, tested, and frozen via IVF, as my mom breezed through every preliminary test she took, to be able to give us this gift. Defying the odds at 51 years old, she’s pushing reproductive science out of the box, as ONE of only a handful of surrogates NATIONWIDE to deliver their grandchild via gestational surrogacy!⠀ ⠀ The trials and tribulations of infertility was undoubtedly the hardest venture we have had to face in our lives. ⠀ ⠀ In short that included…⠀ ⠀ 1311 days⠀ 476 injections⠀ 64 blood draws⠀ 7 surgical procedures ⠀ 3 rounds of harvesting eggs⠀ 19 frozen embryos ⠀ 8 IVF frozen embryo transfers total⠀ 4 failed embryo transfers⠀ 1 singleton miscarriage⠀ 1 twin miscarriage ⠀ 1 ectopic pregnancy ⠀ Countless tears⠀ ⠀ Sharing this adventure with my mom has been the most unique and amazing experience. Surrogacy is truly the most selfless gift. She is the pure example of “you would do anything for your kids”, and if i can even be half of the mother she is, I know i’m doing something right…⠀ ⠀ I want to give a special thanks to Dr. Kaplan with @fertilitycentersofillinois for his compassion and care in this field.⠀ ⠀ Baby Lockwood we can’t wait to meet you…⠀ See you in November!
