In 2011 a consultant removed Maureen’s womb and left one ovary telling her she likely had ovarian cancer. She discovered 18 months later her doctor knew Maureen didn’t have cancer prior to surgery but removed her uterus anyway. So surrogacy was their only hope of a family. However Maureen was told she was too old at 50yrs old to qualify for UK surrogacy. She turned to the Ukraine and welcomed twins born five weeks early through surrogacy in the Ukraine in Jan 2018 at the age of fifty one.
