After an abortion and a failed pregnancy through a surrogate mother, 27-year-old Seethalakshmi was desperately looking for help. It was her 61-year-old mother who agreed to carry her grandchild in her womb.

In November last year, the 61-year-old gave birth through a Caesarean process to a girl who weighed 2.7 kilograms.

The Akash Fertility Centre and Hospital in Chennai has decided to honour both mother and daughter on March 8, International Women's Day.

It started in 2013, when Seethalakshmi along with her husband had made a visit. "We removed the uterus from the Chennai-based woman, after she gave birth to her first child which was born dead due to placental abruption, a complication of pregnancy, wherein the placental lining gets separated from the uterus of the mother," said Dr Jeyarani Kamaraj of Akash Fertility Centre.

As the 21-year-old bled profusely, doctors had to remove her uterus to save her life, the doctor explained. Two years after she lost her baby, Seethalakshmi and her husband, who were both IT professionals, approached a fertility clinic, looking for a surrogate mother. Doctors suggested looking for someone within the family. Later, her mother volunteered to carry her grandchild.
