Offer from Mam to be our Surrogate ( Advice needed)

Hiya there its been a while since been on FF but am back looking for some advice.
So after 5 attempts of ICSI then another 2 years of going back to TTC naturally still nothing happened so 9 years of TTC. We have spoke to a new clinic about giving the IUI a shot but recently my Mam has recently offered to be a host surrogate which is an amazing idea and fantastic thing for her to off but medically i worry that this would be a struggle for her, she is 56 had 2 healthy pregnancies over 28 years ago now, she had been through the change and has had a few medical problems i.e liver problems, so we are looking to seek medical advice. She is currently the fittest she has been for years and she wants to do it so much but i want to make sure she is fit for herself and the baby. I know you don't know her medical history as such but what's your opinion on my 56 year old mam been my surrogate using my eggs and partners sperm. We produced fantastic results through out our ICSI treatment but the little terrors just didn't like to stick, i have always thought surrogacy would be a fantastic idea but always thought we would never be able to afford it, but now my Mam has offered i am thinking it would just be the cost of IVF/ICSI plus dugs for her and maybe legal fees ( tell me if i am wrong)

So just looking for any views or previous experience anything would be a help.

Thanks for Listening Laura :thumbsup:

Hi Hun

Nice to see you back.

I think what your mum has offered to do is amazing.

Only the clinic or doctors will be able to answer whether she is medically fit enough. Don't let her age be a barrier cause as long as she rests and is well looked after there's no reason she can't.

Talk to the clinic or your doctor and what an amazing mum.xxxx

hey hunni, its so lovely to hear from you - i often wonder how you and are and what your up to!

I completely agree with Gemma, your mums age should not stop you looking into everything further, i've read many a story where women in their 50's have had healthy surrogate pregnancies. What an amazing gift she is offering, and how fantastic it would be if she could do this for you.

Please let us know how you get on and what you decide.

lots of love x x

Thanks for your reply ladies, yes she is amazing and am so proud to call her my Mam. Yes think we just need to wait for medical advise and take it from there. Fingers crossed ladies.
Nice to be back.
