On various social media sites, there are several surrogacy-related stories. One such instance involved a mother Nancy Hauck became a surrogate and gives birth to her grandchild for her son and daughter-in-law in Utah. Let’s see who is Nancy Hauck and how Nancy Hauck gave birth to a child for her son and daughter in law in detail.
Who is Nancy Hauck?
In America, a mother gets pregnant and gives birth to her grandchild for her son and daughter-in-law. Each person has been shocked by this tragedy.
In Utah, USA, assistant provost of Utah Tech University Nancy Hauck lives with her husband Jason, 59. Jeff, the son of the couple, is 32 years old.
Cambria and Jeff were expecting twins at the time of their first pregnancy. Now three years old, the twins. But over the subsequent two years, Cambria conceived once again, giving birth to twins.
Why did Nancy Hauck agree to be a surrogate mother?
Jeff and Cambria, who are already parents to 3-year-old twins Vera and Ayva and 11-month-old siblings Diesel and Luka, said to the news agency that they battled infertility for years before they were able to conceive. Diesel and Luka’s birth were followed by “a lot of complications” for the mother.
The couple wanted a fifth child but were limited in their options due to Cambria’s hysterectomy after the traumatic delivery of their twins in September of last year.

That’s when Nancy stepped in at that point. Nancy, who is wed to Jeff’s father Jason, age 59, stated, “I just suddenly had a feeling a few months after that I should offer to do it”. “I told my son, and he teared up and was shocked — I hadn’t even told my husband at that point. But he was supportive.”

Cambria told SWNS of her mother-in-law, “She is sacrificing so much for us, and our family, and we just feel so grateful.”
She stated, “She has been nothing short of amazing and filled with so much light and grace. They say pregnancy comes with a glow, but Nancy’s is a full-on lighthouse.”
Jeff told SWNS of his mother ,”There is no repayment for something like that, all I can do is follow the example my parents have set and try to give that same level of love and devotion to my own family and to others.”
He did not consider it a possibility until Nancy Hauck suggested she could act as a surrogate for him and his wife Cambria. The 56-year-old gave birth to the couple’s fifth child, a daughter, thus it worked out for the family, the outlet added.
Web developer Mr. Hauck described the entire event as “a beautiful moment.” He told People, “How many people get to watch their mom give birth?”.
Dr. Russell Foulk’s Statement
The idea that a woman’s fertility declines with age are a “misunderstood concept,” according to Foulk, the founder, and director of the Utah Fertility Center.
Nancy “was in perimenopause, which means the ovary is still making hormones,” according to Dr. Russell Foulk, who oversaw and implanted the embryos that led to both of Cambria’s pregnancies and performed the same for her mother-in-law.
“You still make some, so your periods become erratic or irregular, unpredictable,” he says.
“The reality is that the only reason there’s truth to that is the health of the egg. The uterus, unless there’s been some new medical issue that’s arisen in that 25 years, still maintains its capacity to carry a pregnancy”, he says.
The doctor claims that, even though it is “unusual for a mother to carry her grandchild,” “age is really not the limiting” issue. He adds that one potential additional risk is that with age there is a bigger probability “to have more medical problems, such as diabetes or high blood pressure,” and that “really, it goes to health, goes to the state of health of that individual.” However, according to his evaluation of her. Nancy was “healthy and capable”.

“Everything went perfectly and we are feeling so blessed to have her in our family,”, she says. She is also dealing with “facing new emotions of having a baby, but not bringing the baby home with me afterward” as she continues to recover.

“Facing new emotions of having a baby, but not bringing the baby home with me afterwards.,” she continues.
Little girl’s name
The young child has also been given the name Hannah. According to Mr. Hauck, his mother awoke in the middle of the night after hearing the words “My name is Hannah.”
According to Cambira, Hannah is the source of Nancy’s name. They both refer to grace. The grandma who worked at Utah Tech University, according to the article, was certain the child would be a girl.
Hannah’s Birth Date
Hannah arrived during the popular Mexican festival known as Da de Los Muertos (also known as Day of the Dead), which is observed to honor departed loved ones, Cambria referred to Hannah’s birthday as “sacred.”
“And her ancestors on both sides had a HUGE part in getting her here,” Cambria wrote on Instagram.
After Hannah’s Birth
Nancy intends to take a full three weeks off work following Hannah’s birth to write a book about the event.
She continues, “I’m going to address the separation [from the baby], the sadness. Even though I know that the baby’s going to my son, I know there’ll be a little bit of that empty feeling.”
