Mandy and her partner have a blended family of 8 – her youngest is a 20 year-old. Her partners youngest is aged 13. Mandy was a surrogate for her girlfriend who was unable to carry due to a history of uterine cancer. Using donated embryos and enduring five failed transfers, Mandy was 51 when they started the process and 53 when she delivered following her sixth transfer. The delivery was very pre-term, a baby boy arriving at 29 weeks 5 days. But now aged two years, Mandy and her partner continue to play an active role in his life.
