Woman delivers her sister's baby twins after she has 9 miscarriages

- After nine miscarriages, this woman gave up hope of having children

- Yet through IVF, her sister offered to carry one for her

- It turned that that BOTH embryos developed well, so twins were born!

A woman desperately wanting to become a mother suffered nine miscarriages. She was devastated, yet her sister decided to step in and help her.

Melissa Kayser, 33, had unsuccessfully tried to carry a baby to term for over three years. It was then when doctors recommended fertility treatments and IVF. The issue was to find a surrogate –and her sister, Lisa Auten, offered to be one!

“I didn’t know if I could emotionally handle another woman being able to carry my child,” Kayser commented on a recent Inside Edition report. She had always had very strong maternal instincts, and it was very hard for her to deal with the fact that she was unable to have her own child.

Lisa proved a more than acceptable alternative. “I couldn't stand watching Melissa go through loss after loss," she said, adding that “if I could help give her a family, then I was going to do it."

As with standard IVF procedures, two embryos were implanted in Lisa. Most of the times one is lost, but this time around, both embryos developed perfectly well!

Baby girls, Tierney and Ashlynn, were born in perfect health 6 weeks ago. Ironically, their real mother will have to adopt them, due to a specific law from Nebraska, the U.S. state they live in.

Kayser is very grateful for her sister’s gift. “There are never any words that I can say to thank her for what she did. She gave up a year of her life so that we could have a family. I could never repay,” she said.
