Britains Oldest Mums

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, March 20, 2011 | 0 comments

Pamela Butler, surrogate mum at 57PAMELA Butler may be the UK’s oldest surrogate mum but she’s not the first to help out a daughter.

Cases of daughters asking their mums to become surrogates are rare, but in 2001 Vivien Morris, 54, gave birth to her own grand-daughter.

Her daughter Laura Westrop, 29, was unable to carry a baby after treatment for cervical cancer. So Vivien, a playgroup worker from London, volunteered to help Laura and her husband Mark.

In 2005, 53-year-old Annie Casserley gave birth for her daughter Emma Hattersley, who was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer when she was 19, and son-in-law Andrew.

Liz Buttle, from near Lampeter in West Wales, became the UK’s oldest mum at 60 when she gave birth to a son called Joseph in 1997. She now lives in Ireland.

Elizabeth Adeney of Lidgate, Suffolk, is Britain’s oldest mum after giving birth to a boy in May 2009, aged 66.

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.
