Grandma Gives Birth to Triplets

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, April 24, 2016 | 1 comments

Image:Grandma Gives Birth to Triplets, Babies Home in Time for ThanksgivingThe Coseno family has a lot to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Three new babies, all of them girls: Elizabeth, Carmina and Gabriella.

The triplets are now home from the hospital after being born prematurely. They'd been delivered via Caesarean section at Hillcrest Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic facility.

The triplet's grandmother, 56-year-old Jaci Dalenberg, gave birth to them. That's because Kim Coseno, Jaci's daughter, couldn't bear any more children after she'd had a hysterectomy.

Kim says doctors left one of her ovaries so she wouldn't go into menopause at a young age, and in case she wanted to have more children in the future.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Grade A Baby Eggs: An Infertility Memoir, by Victoria Hopewell. Publisher: Epigraph Books (October 4, 2011)Grade A Baby Eggs: An Infertility Memoir
by Victoria Hopewell

-- Victoria Hopewell was a forty-something divorced clinical psychologist when she met and married a longtime bachelor whose ninety-year-old parents were anxiously waiting for a grandchild.

Problem was, even though Victoria had two young daughters from a previous marriage, her intense desire to create a baby with her new husband was thwarted by her own body.

Her eggs were aging faster than her healthy hormones and youthful appearance would suppose.

Desperate to bear a child, willing to undergo every procedure from Lupron shots through egg harvesting and in vitro fertilization (IVF), she is blocked at every corner of medical protocol from achieving her dream of a successful pregnancy.

Finally she journeys toward acceptance of using a donor egg, much to the dismay of her growing daughters.

But no eggs are available, and she is placed on a lengthy hospital wait-list. Victoria and her husband then embark on a surrealistic egg hunt to find their own donor.

Follow her insider's account of the hidden world of egg donation-where women's eggs are bought and sold over the internet and a beautiful model with high SATs and a prior successful donation commands the highest prices.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
