The wonderful Grandmother gives birth to her own GRANDSON

After battling health-related-problem as a child, Alice was unable to carry a child – so her mum stepped in to help her.

Alice fell pregnant naturally when she was 23, but tragically lost her little boy at 15 weeks – doctors advising her that ͏c͏o͏m͏p͏l͏i͏c͏a͏t͏i͏o͏n͏s with her uterus meant she would never be able to carry a baby to full term.

But Alice’s mother, Theresa Hohenhaus, from Ipswich, Queensland, offered to step in as a surrogate for her daughter and keep her dreams of having a family alive.


‘Alice already had the embryos and I thought “why not?”,’ Theresa said.

‘I thought I was too old and Alice didn’t want me to do it at first but I had already almost lost Alice twice before – she ͏h͏e͏m͏o͏r͏r͏h͏a͏g͏e͏d during her pregnancy and it was touch and go there for a while.

‘Making her happy and seeing her happy now is worth it.’

‘Alice already had the embryos and I thought “why not?”,’ Theresa said.

Theresa, who is a mother-of-five and has fostered 50 children, became pregnant almost immediately.

From the word go, Theresa saw the growing baby as nothing but her grandson and gave birth to him on June 2nd


Reflecting on their unique journey, Alice still can’t believe what her mum did for her.

With Parker safely on his Grandmother’s chest, the emotion and atmosphere in the room turned from nervousness to completely ELECTRIC!! After waiting for so many years and going through so much, Alice was finally a mother! And the tears certainly flowed.

“You can never repay someone for doing something like that for you,” Alice said. “During the birth, she said, don’t you ever ask me to do that again, she was in a lot of pain.


“But now she is eager to do it again, to give Parker a sibling. I said ‘let me try and raise this one first’.”

I would have to say it was the best experience of my whole life,’ Theresa said.


Theresa did an incredible job at bringing Parker into the world and should be congratulated on giving her daughter such a wonderful gift. ͏Su͏r͏r͏o͏g͏a͏c͏y is such a selfless act (particularly here in Australia where you cannot be paid for being a ͏s͏u͏r͏r͏o͏g͏a͏t͏e (outside of medical bills)) and this story shows that a mother’s love for their child knows no bounds!!!

BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Alice and Theresa on the arrival of Parker!

And well done for sharing what truly is an inspirational example of a Mother’s unconditional love.
