Woman Conceives, Gives Birth To Grandchild For Her Daughter

A woman has given birth to her own grandchild by having a surrogate baby for her daughter.

Julie Bradford, 45, had baby Jack for daughter Jessica Jenkins, whose cancer treatment left her infertile.

Jessica, 21, from Rhymney, had her eggs frozen at Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales before her treatment for cervical cancer began three years ago.

She said Jack, who was born last Friday weighing 6lb 10oz, was "perfect in every way".

Jessica and her husband Rees decided to pursue IVF earlier this year after she had been in remission since the summer of 2014.

She was diagnosed in 2013, aged 18, after doctors initially thought she was too young to have cervical cancer.

Jessica said: "They managed to take 21 eggs before I started chemo but only 10 survived and they were made into embryos and grown for two weeks then frozen.

"In May this year we had an embryo defrosted and implanted into my mother's womb for her to be the little oven helping our Jelly Bean grow."
