Woman in US gives birth to her daughter's child

54-year-old Tracey Thompson agreed to be her daughter's surrogate after she suffered three miscarriages

A 54-year-old woman in the US has given birth to her own grandchild by becoming a surrogate of her daughter and son-in law.

Tracey Thompson offered to carry her 28-year-old daughter Kelley’s baby as she had suffered three miscarriages.

Kelley and husband were trying for three years to have a baby, but in vain. They had undergone many infertility treatments. The last round of In Vitro Fertilisation left the couple with four remaining embryos.

One of these embryos was implanted into Tracey in April 2015. Before this, Tracy underwent several treatments to ascertain if her body was fit enough to carry a baby.

Tracy delivered a healthy baby girl on January 6 this year. She has been named Kelcey, which is a combination of Kelley and Tracey.

The family is sharing their story to make other couples aware about surrogacy.
