This is the moment a mum who was so adamant she’d have no more kids she got sterilised had a surrogate baby for a couple she didn’t know.
This video shows the heartwarming moment the intended parents thank mum-of-two Prizzilla Greer, 27, for their newborn son.
Prizzilla and her husband Skylar Greer, 26, thought they were done having children after giving birth to Nixon, five and Lo, four.
During her second c-section in January 2016, doctors also performed a female sterilisation at her request.
But after seeing a friend’s post about surrogacy on Facebook in September 2018, Prizzilla filled out an inquiry form.
Just a month later, Hawaii Surrogacy Centre matched her with a gay couple, and she was able to carry the embryo created by IVF.
An amazing tell-all video shows her birth and the moment the men gratefully cradle their son.
The surrogate ambassador from Oahu, Hawaii said: “I actually didn’t intend on having kids – from a young age, I didn’t really care to have them.
“Then when I met my husband, we unexpectedly got pregnant with my son and I loved it.
“We wanted him to have a sibling so we tried to conceive a sibling when my son was six months old and it was successful – I had my daughter and we had no issues.
“I had started to see my friends share their troubles with infertility, and it was the first time I was introduced to that, because the women in my family don’t have any trouble getting pregnant.
“I felt some guilt knowing that this was someone’s dream to have a child all their life and someone like me, who never really planned for it, was able to do it right away.
“I felt like I needed to do something to help, but I didn’t know what it was for a few years.”
Following the birth of her daughter, Prizzilla had a tubal ligation.
She saw a post about surrogacy on Facebook, and it made her think about helping another couple have a child.
Prizzilla said: “When I was 25, someone posted about surrogacy – it was like 3 o’clock in the morning, it was on Facebook.
“I never even went on Facebook back then, but I just knew I was meant to be at that place, at that time to see that post.
“I just started crying because I felt like it was a sign that this is what I am supposed to do, even though I hadn’t put too much thought into it before.”
She met the intended parents – a homosexual couple in Australia who had been trying to have a child for more than 10 years – over Skype in October 2018.
After a series of medical checks, in May 2019, a single embryo was successfully implanted.
“The sperm from one of the dads and the egg from their donor was used,” said Prizzilla. whose husband is a sergeant in the army.
“And before I was even matched with them, they had embryos created at the IVF clinic just waiting to be transferred to my uterus.
“Gestational surrogacy doesn’t require the surrogate to use her own egg, so I was able to carry the embryo that was already created by my intended parents and their egg donor.
“We just had to make sure my uterus was healthy enough to carry the embryo to term.
“I really was just an oven for their bun.”
Their baby boy was born on January 18 2020.
Prizzilla blogged the pregnancy on Youtube to normalise attitudes towards surrogacy.
Hundreds of women have messaged her to share surrogacy myths and misconceptions.
After seeing her videos online, the Hawaii Surrogacy Centre hired her to be a surrogate ambassador.
As well as sharing surrogacy experiences on social media, she also deals with inquiries from prospective surrogates.
Her videos – covering everything from surrogacy myths to inside the delivery room – have had more than 17,000 views.
Growing up, I had never heard about surrogacy, aside from celebrities doing it.
“I just wanted to show people my side of things and kind of normalise it for others.
“Maybe to spark something in someone else’s brain.
“ I don’t think I would have even thought about doing it had I not seen another average person post about it in a Facebook group.”
