trojan water polo club Fort Mill mom gives motherhood to couples in need
Ashe said her experiences as a surrogate were all positive which she attributes to several factors not being a surrogate for a family member, having lawyers and contracts every step of the way and finding like minded couples. For example, Ashe and her husband were not willing to entertain the idea of aborting a baby because of a chromosome defect such as Down syndrome. The agency brought couple profiles to Ashe to review that stipulated the couple’s wishes to abort in such a case and she declined.
Stacey Ashe is close to the third couple,
who live in Holland, texting near daily and talking often via Skype. The couple recently invited her to speak at a surrogacy conference in Holland this week. The couple has started the process of searching for a surrogate to expand their family for a second time. Ashe said she considered carrying for them again, but ultimately decided her surrogacy days are over. She developed pre eclampsia during her final pregnancy and gave birth to the twins via C section. She said she gained 80 pounds during the pregnancy,
40 of which she lost soon after delivery.
