I’m 54 and expecting my first grandson; I’ve gone through menopause, but he’ll be here in January.
After stepping in as a surrogate, a MUM who has already gone through menopause is pregnant with her own grandson.
Maree Arnold, 54, decided to step up and help her daughter realize her ambition of becoming a mother.
Meagan White, her daughter, was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) when she was 17 years old, which means she was born without a uterus and is unable to carry her own kid.
After a Canadian surrogate miscarried a baby girl at 21 weeks, the now 28-year-old, who has a nursing background, felt she would never be able to become a mother.
Maree realized she could be a surrogate for her daughter after conducting thorough study.
She’s currently 30 weeks pregnant with her first grandchild.

“Thankfully, he has always been very supportive of me and has stated that we will be parents one day, no matter what it takes.”

In January 2019, we looked into surrogacy and discovered a volunteer in Canada through an agency called Allison.
“We got to know her digitally for nine months before travelling over to meet her in person in September 2019.”
“We went ahead with the first transfer shortly after returning home to Australia, which failed, but the second was successful, and Allison became pregnant in December 2019.”
“However, in March 2020, physicians informed us that our baby girl’s kidneys had not matured and that she would not be able to live.
“Everyone was upset, and I felt like giving up after that.” Then, after the pandemic hit, international travel was outlawed, making everything seem impossible.” Maree had always assumed that she would be regarded ‘too old’ to carry… Brinkwire News in a Nutshell
