Grandma gives birth to her Grandchildren

Blastocyst on day 5 after fertilizationImage via WikipediaThe Ohio woman is 56 and has been a surrogate mother for her daughter’s triplets through in vitro fertilisation. It’s a weird world which constantly challenges the norm and makes you constantly question what is acceptable, what is possible and what is a relationship. This way her daughter gets to have her own children. Her daughter and her husband were waiting to adopt. We also get to see that a 56 year old woman can safely bring children to term and so her health and wellbeing ought to be looked at because she would  have to be healthy and well to be able to carry triplets.Her constitution is worth investigating! The children were born by Caesarian section. It’s a completely remarkable story .
