Gestational Surrogacy

A grandmother in Georgia gave her daughter and son-in-law a beautiful gift -- on October 6, she gave birth to her grandson after being a gestational surrogate for the couple.

Mom with baby and grandma

A 45-year-old woman had a baby earlier this month, but it wasn’t a son Angie Stockton gave birth to, but a grandson. When her daughter discovered that she was unable to carry a baby due to her uterus not being fully formed, the grandmother-to-be stepped up to volunteer to carry their baby for them.

Gestational surrogacy

Gestational surrogacy describes a situation where a woman carries a baby for a couple that was conceived via in vitro fertilization using their egg and sperm. Often, this can be arranged through clinics that offer such services -- that is, you contact them and they set up everything for you.

In this case, however, Angie was moved to action when her daughter and son-in-law, Krista and Trent Saxton, discovered that Krista would be unable to have a baby through a traditional pregnancy. That’s when she spoke up and offered to do it for them.

Thrilled parents

This is believed to be just the fourth time a grandmother has been a gestational surrogate for her own grandchild. The baby, who was named Tucker, has brought a lot of joy to the new parents, and his grandmother will surely continue to have a special connection to him as he grows.

“It’s been 26 years since I’ve been pregnant,” said Angie. “I’ve forgot a lot of things. So she had to tell me what to expect. It’s funny because she’s the one who ended up with a lot of the pregnancy symptoms.”

Would you?

If your daughter or daughter-in-law comes to you many years from now and tells you that she is unable to carry a child, would you volunteer to become a surrogate for them? Of course, you’d have to consider many things -- your own health and possibly being ordered to bedrest if complications arise. But all things being equal, could you do it?
