Cecile Eledge and her family did not think doctors in her Nebraska hometown would allow her to act as a surrogate because of her age. The circumstances of Uma's birth are a testament to changing social mores as well as the dramatic advances in senior health made by modern medicine and healthy lifestyles.

Cecile Eledge thought doctors in her home state of Nebraska would not allow her to carry a baby for the couple because of her age. But the family rejoiced when Uma Louise Dougherty was born in an old-fashioned delivery two weeks ago at a Nebraska medical centre in Omaha. The family was trying to ignore the negative reactions — the people who wrongly think that Matthew had sex with his own mother to produce the baby, or who leave homophobic remarks. Eledge and his husband, Elliott Dougherty, have battled prejudice throughout their relationship, with Eledge losing his job as a teacher at a Catholic school after the pair announced they would be married. They were concerned that they would be denied permission to adopt a baby in their conservative home state. So they decided to try in-vitro fertilisation with a donated egg and a surrogate to carry the foetus.
