A WESTMEATH mother-of-four has spoken of her joy in becoming a surrogate for close friends who struggled to conceived.
Becky Dore Loftus said while the surrogacy wasn’t on her bucket list, after talking to friends and considering it she couldn’t see a reason not to do it.
The Midlands mum from Killucan said she struggled with secondary infertility for six years before her second pregnancy after having her eldest child but following IVF, she went on to have twins and a fourth “surprise” child.
She said while she thought she was “definitely finished” after her fourth child was born, she changed her mind while talking with friends who were struggling to get pregnant.
She told Midlands 103: “We were away on a weekend with very very good friends of ours that we’ve known for over 20 years and we were aware that they couldn’t have children.
“We were speaking about our IVF with the couple and I thought, I’m not over the hill. I said I think I would consider [surrogacy], let’s all go away and have a think about it.”
