Grandmother Gives Birth To Her Own Daughter's Baby

A 54-year-old woman has given birth to her own grandchild at the Medical Center of Plano on Wednesday, in Texas, USA.
Kelley McKissack’s , 28, and her husband Aaron, 33, were trying to conceive a baby for three years until one day Kelley’s mother Tracey offered her help.

The desperate couple had undergone multiple infertility treatments and experienced three miscarriages before their long-
awaited daughter Kelcey was born. And Tracey Thompson, 54, who was already seven years past menopause, became a surrogate mother for their daughter.

Mrs Thompson had received special medical treatment to prepare her body for the pregnancy and the embryo was successfully implanted in her womb in April last year. The proud grandmother gave birth to a healthy baby girl weighing 3kg on January 6.

“She’s a special kind of woman. My lovely mum gave me the best gift I could ever have in my life. You have friends, and there are many women who are willing to do it. I just want people to know, you can have your biological child still,” Mrs McKissack said.

According to a new grandmother, the hormone therapy was at times difficult, and the pregnancy as well as delivery wasn’t easy. But now everything is fine, Mrs Thompson and baby are doing well.  “It is such a blessing that I can do this for my daughter,” Tracey said.
