A 53-year-old woman has given birth to her daughter's baby in one of the first surrogacy cases of its kind in the Midlands.

Annie Casserley underwent a Caesarian operation.

Her first request on waking from general anesthetic was to see her daughter holding the baby.

Emma Hattersley, 35 years old, from Streetly, in Birmingham, has a serious lung disease and risks dying if she gives birth.

Baby Annie Trinity Hattersley was born on Thursday weighing 7lb 8oz.

Mrs. Casserley, who has four grown-up children, was implanted with eggs from her daughter.

But despite her age, the pregnancy was without complication.

She told BBC Midlands Today on Friday she had no qualms throughout the pregnancy or at the time of the birth, at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.

-- Until now, there has been little practical advice on what women can do about ticking biological clocks.

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock is the first book to explore a woman's reproductive lifespan completely, from beginning to end.

Based on Cara Birrittieri's own experience of running up against a slowing biological clock, she shows women for the first time how to "tell what time it is" with a simple blood test giving them a peek at the state of their ovaries.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
