When you read the title, I bet you thought why would I want to know about a woman who gave away her children?  The woman in question, 45 year old legal secretary Jill Hawkins, has been a surrogate mother for the last 19 years, giving birth to 8 children, only one using an implanted embryo.  This last pregnancy took its toll on Jill, causing her to be off  work for most of the year and she was admitted to the hospital two weeks before she was due because she was so sick; she had high blood pressure and frequent vomiting, and the baby’s heart rate was too fast.

Jill Hawkins and Number 8, Oliver

Jill has suffered with depression in the past and decided that surrogacy was a way for her to give back but according to her family, the pregnancies have taken a toll on her mental health. This eighth pregnancy will be her last, Jill has decided enough is enough with this being the most difficult one for her.  Jill recently was given the British title of Most Prolific Surrogate Mother.  I think she gives new meaning to Legal Secretary of the Year!  Congratulations Jill to your recent title and your selfless assistance to couples who were unable to conceive on their own.
