A woman from the Black Country has made her sister’s dream come true – by giving birth to her son.
Laura Knight, 29, was 16 when she was told she had MRKH syndrome, meaning she was born without a uterus and would need to find a surrogate to be able to have a child.
However she didn’t have to look very far, because her sister Hayley Burton, 33, offered to help.
Mrs Burton gave birth to Mrs Knight’s son Noah on January 10th 2022.
The two sisters, who are nurses at Sandwell Hospital, said they describe baby Noah as the bun and his aunty as the oven.
Mrs Burton says: “You’d do anything for your family, wouldn’t you, and I had something she didn’t have.
“I’d had no problems conceiving my own two children and I just wanted to make a family and give something back.”
