CHICO (KRON) — A Chico woman has twice the reason to be happy for becoming a grandmother.
She now has a beautiful grandson and she gave birth to him herself.
On October 22, Megan Barker, gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
“It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life,” the 48-year-old grandmother tells KRCR.
Barker’s daughter, Maddie Coleman, couldn’t deliver a baby because her ovaries were at risk of tumors.
Coleman and her husband couldn’t afford a surrogate mother, which can cost as much as $75,000, so they turned to her mother.
“This was the biggest gift anybody can receive is becoming a mom and have my mom give me that gift, it’s unexplainable,” says Coleman.\
