What would you do to have a baby?

A Nottingham based woman is preparing to have a womb transplant next year in Sweden.
The womb will be donated by her own mother, now 56.
She has a condition called Rokitansky Kuster Hauser syndrome which means she was born without a uterus, she was diagnosed in her teens when she failed to start menstruating.

The surgery will take place in Sweden next year and then the woman will be able to carry her baby after she is artificially inseminated.

If it all works out she will be carrying a baby in the same womb that she was carried in!

It all sounds a little weird, but I guess it’s just like an organ donation. It’s sad when someone has a condition which prevents them from having children, I can’t imagine what that would be like, my children mean everything to me. I’m not sure how brave I would have been had I not been able to have my own children. I’d have probably been more for adoption and helping children in care.

Also, at the tender age of 44, after 5 kids and one miscarriage, I’m not sure my womb would be any good for donation, especially with it’s resident fibroids.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
