Image: 43y mom thought she had started menopauseA 43 year old Madrid woman has given birth to her fourth child while in the toilets of the Law Faculty of the UNED University in Madrid, where she works.

She said she did not even know she was pregnant.

She had thought that she had started the menopause.

Two of her work colleagues helped her, and called SAMUR health professionals to the scene on Monday at 11am.

The baby girl weighed 1.96 kilos, and mother and baby are now both doing well in the Gregario Marañón Hospital.

by Susan Markens

-- Susan Markens takes on one of the hottest issues on the fertility front--surrogate motherhood--in a book that illuminates the culture wars that have erupted over new reproductive technologies in the United States.

In an innovative analysis of legislative responses to surrogacy in the bellwether states of New York and California, Markens explores how discourses about gender, family, race, genetics, rights, and choice have shaped policies aimed at this issue.

She examines the views of key players, including legislators, women's organizations, religious groups, the media, and others.

In a study that finds surprising ideological agreement among those with opposing views of surrogate motherhood, Markens challenges common assumptions about our responses to reproductive technologies and at the same time offers a fascinating picture of how reproductive politics shape social policy.

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.
