After becoming one of the UK’s youngest surrogates, a selfless mother gave birth to triplets.
Shaniece Sturdy was barely 21 years old when she gave birth to the three children for Joanna and Steve.
After seeing a TV program on a couple who was anxious to have a kid, she decided to help them.
Shaniece approached a surrogacy center in the hopes of assisting some hopeful parents, and there she met Joanna and Steve, a happily married couple.
Shaniece, who owns a cleaning service, was eager to assist the couple in realizing their goal of having children.
She traveled to Los Angeles to get their embryo implanted since she was anxious to help them complete their family.
Shaniece, who has already started her own cleaning company, was taken aback when midwives discovered not one, but three heartbeats.
Joanna and Steve, who live in the United Kingdom, were overjoyed to learn they were expecting triplets, and Shaniece now pays them a visit on their birthdays every year.
Shaniece’s waters ruptured on Halloween, 33 weeks into her pregnancy, and she was brought to the hospital.
“Joanna came down to theatre with me, and while I was frightened, all I cared about was ensuring the kids were born safe and healthily,” the concerned mother remembered.
“The triplets were rushed to intensive care, but Willow, Daisy, and Harrison, who weighed 4lb 2oz, 3lb 7oz, and 3lb 11oz, respectively, were OK.”
The lovely infants were admitted to critical care but released a week later.
Shaniece pays a visit to the gorgeous triplets on their birthdays every year to keep up with the family.
“Even though I was just 21 and carrying their infants was a great responsibility, it was one of the best experiences of my life,” she added.
“I would recommend it to anybody considering being a surrogate; I can’t wait to do it again.”
