In the city of Pune, Maharashtra State, Western India,a 49Year old grieving mum uses her late son’s sperm to get twins.
Rajashree Patil, was informed by doctors that she was unfit for IVF treatment using a sample taken from her late son Prathamesh after she disclosed her dream of re-incarnating her child.
Daily Mail reports that she had wanted to conceive the children herself by being the surrogate mother but doctors said she was medically unfit as she had already begun her menopause.Instead, his semen was used to fertilise an egg which was given by an anonymous donor, who was not related to the family, before being implanted into a close relative.The surrogate, 35, has now given birth to twins and Rajashree says she will raise the little boy and girl, who are technically her grandchildren, as though they are her own.She called the boy Prathamesh while she named the little girl after her daughter Prisha, who will help her raise the babies.
Rajashree, who works as a teacher, said: “I was carrying the soul of my son in me and was looking for a body to breathe it into. Doctors had preserved my son’s semen before they commenced cancer treatment to preempt any negative effects of the medicine used on him. Due to this I have been able to get my son back.”Though faced with a lot of criticism from her in-laws over her decision,she has been supported by her daughter Prisha throughout the ordeal
Prathamesh was studying engineering in Germany when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour. While Prathamesh went through gruelling cancer treatment, doctors in Germany collected his sperm and put it in storage. Before his death, because he was unmarried, he nominated his mother and sister to use his semen sample after his death.
He completed his master’s degree before returning to India for an operation in May 2013. For a while, he appeared to be doing well but in February 2016 the cancer returned and by September 2016 he passed away.Months later, his mother got the idea to preserve his bloodline by having his kids.
Rajashree said: “Getting the semen into our custody was not easy and we faced a lot of hurdles. Money and time were serious issues but now I will take the responsibility of these infants. I am their mother now.”
The twins were born on Monday and since then Rajashree has been quick to correct any visitors who have referred to her as their grandmother. She tells them to call her their mother.
