    Surrogate Grandma?!

    Should a 60-year-old grandmother be pregnant? Well, if you are her daughter who has been unable to carry a pregnancy to term (including losing twins at 5 months), the answer is yes. Interviewed on The View this morning, the Mom and Dad rejoiced the fact that Grandma was willing and ABLE to be the "gestational carrier" for her daughter and son-in-law. "Not necessarily easy- but worth all the effort" said Grandma, as she bounced her 15-month-old grandson on her knee.

    Interestingly, we have an "expectant couple' in the SF based childbirth class right now, whose baby is due next month — they are overjoyed at the prospect of becoming parents. (Due to medical complications, she is unable to sustain a pregnancy, so they too retained a surrogate.) They are taking childbirth classes so that they can fully participate in the birth of their daughter and provide support to their surrogate, for whom they "have no words for how much we appreciate the gift she is delivering to us."

    So, what do you think? Too much high-tech pregnancy intervention? Or, how great that we now have the medical wherewithal to assist couples to become parents?
