FIRM Implants Embryo in Patient’s Mother
Woman gives birth to granddaughter at Plano hospital after surrogate pregnancy
Dr. Ali Guerami of Frisco Institute for Reproductive Medicine helped a grandmother give her daughter a special delivery through surrogacy on January 6. After multiple miscarriages in three years, Kelley and Aaron McKissack, of Wylie, Texas, almost gave up hope of having children, until Kelley’s 54-year-old mom offered to be the surrogate. The couple was left with only four remaining embryos after a final round of in vitro fertilization (IVF), one of which was successfully implanted into Kelley’s mom in April 2015.
“Just because the patient wants it, or there is a surrogate available, doesn’t mean they should go ahead and do it.” – Dr. Ali Guerami
