Families are always there for us, no matter what. They assist us get through life’s most difficult challenges without expecting anything in return. Many of our parents would undoubtedly go to any length to assist us.
However, one 61-year-old mom went above and beyond to make her son happy! Cecile Eledge was a surrogate mother for her son Matthew and his partner Elliot.
They had been going through the motions of starting IVF therapy for a few years since they were so desperate for a kid of their own. Mathew’s mother, on the other hand, gave them the surprise of a lifetime when she agreed to be their surrogate!
Cecile had a great time with her previous pregnancies and was certain that her body would be up to the challenge. However, the family was concerned whether a doctor would permit the child’s grandma to undergo this procedure.
When they finally met with a reproductive endocrinologist, they were ecstatic to learn that the doctor was willing to assist them with their mission. According to The Daily Mail, the process began despite Cecile having not been pregnant in over 30 years and having gone through menopause over a decade ago.
Cecile had to go through a pap smear, blood tests, cholesterol testing, mammograms, and ultrasounds before the pregnancy could be started. In order to carry her grandchild, her health had to be in top shape. Elliot’s sister decided to make a contribution of her own while the testing was going on: her eggs!
Hormone therapy began when Cecile passed all of her tests, and Elliot’s sister’s eggs were fertilized with Mathew’s sperm. Cecile became pregnant on her first try with implantation, despite the difficulties she claimed to be suffering. Despite the fact that the pregnancy was difficult for her due to her age, she managed it gracefully.
Despite the odds, the baby girl was delivered and named Uma despite morning sickness and blood pressure increases. Uma was even delivered naturally, without the need for a C-section.
During the childbirth process, the child’s dads were naturally filled with emotion, allowing themselves to cry freely.
“I don’t know how to describe her; she’s remarkable. I have such deep respect for her and am so gracious that even as a grown adult she continues to go above and beyond for me,” Matthew told the Daily Mail.
He can’t believe how far his mother will go to make him happy and assist him in starting a family. He also credits her for molding him into the guy he is now; he considers her to be great, strong, and a true warrior.
Cecile told the Daily Mail that giving the baby to her son was not difficult for her throughout the birthing procedure. She had always felt like the baby was her granddaughter, and pregnancy had exhausted her to the point where she was relieved to hand the baby over to her adoring parents! [Sources: 1, 2]
