Dan and Jody Wegge are just one of the couples who can thank Meredith Olafson, the so-called 'Super Surrogate', for giving birth to their children.
Brooke, Megan and Nicholas, Mrs Wegge's 13-year-old triplets, were the first children in North Dakota born from a gestational carrier (a surrogate mother who has no biological link to her baby because she does not provide her own egg).
The Minnesota couple, who relocated after the triplets were born, looked to the services of Mrs Olafson, a 47-year-old gestational surrogate from North Dakota who has given birth to 11 children in addition to three of her own, after Mrs Wegge, 47 also, lost her uterus during a hysterectomy.
