Surrogate Mom "Retires" After Birthing 15th Baby (VIDEO)

Meredith Olafson is a North Dakota mother of four who has also been a surrogate for eleven more babies — all as part of her quest to help families struggling with infertility. Olafson recently told the TODAY show, "We did not go into this to make money. You know, we went into this so that families could have the experience of having their own children." 

After the latest, her 15th birth, she says she is "retiring the uterus." 


Would you ever consider carrying a baby for someone else?

Id most definatley. I was screened in my 20s. I dont think id have any trouble blessing a family w Child of their own. Even if I donatec the eggs. I have plenty of blessings of my own, and would be honored to "share the wealth".

That is an amazing woman! Pregnancy requires so many sacrifices and it can take a toll on you physically and emotionally. To sacrifice your body for your own child is one thing, but to make that sacrifice over and over again for another couple, that is amazing to me!

I have considered this yes, for my sister. She has infertility problems, and has been trying to conceive for over 5 years. Its been a thought for a while, but after having 3 kids of my own, and all the sacrifices that need to be made, I'm still not sure if I would ever follow through with it. I know how happy it would make her, but at the same time its a lot of work on my behalf, and with the medical conditions I have, I wouldn't want to be pregnant again with my own child. I think about it everyday though :(
