Baby Boomer Mom Gives Birth to Her Own Grandson
Sixty-one-year-old Kristine Casey has a new grandson and it's one she gave birth to herself. The baby boomer mom gave birth to Finnean Lee Connell, her first grandchild, by way of a Cesarean section last week at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Illionois after undergoing special hormone therapy leading up to the in-vitro fertilization.
Casey’s 35-year-old daughter asked her mother if she would carry the embryo she and her husband created from their own egg and sperm after several of her pregnancies failed to come to term.
Casey, who went through menopause 10 years ago, may have unofficially become the oldest woman in Illinois history to give birth after serving as a surrogate for her daughter, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Question is: Would you be a surrogate for your daughter in yur 50s or 60s?
