PLANO, Texas (SBG) — A Texas woman gave birth naturally on Wednesday four years after her first child was birthed by her own mother through surrogacy.
A spokesperson for the Medical City Plano Labor and Delivery says giving birth naturally was a "lifelong goal" of 32-year-old Kelly McKissack "despite a serious diagnosis of Methyl Tetrahydrofolate Reductase Mutation and Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, a genetic blood clotting disease with an autoimmune disorder." Medical officials explain McKissack had to take daily blood thinning injections to sustain a healthy pregnancy.
"Mother, baby, big sister and grandmother are all healthy and thrilled. Grandmother Tracey and big sister, Kelsey, welcomed the baby with a special birthday cake & song shared over FaceTime," officials at Medical City Plano and Delivery wrote in a press release.
