SUBSCRIBE to Truly: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj JACLYN Misch from Michigan was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome (MRKH) when she was 16 years old. Jaclyn’s diagnosis revealed that she was born with her ovaries intact but without a uterus and a fully formed vagina, meaning that she would be unable to get pregnant. MRKH has affected Jaclyn throughout her life, growing up as a young woman she felt different and was confronted with questions about her own womanhood. Despite her condition Jaclyn has always been determined to be a mother with her loving husband Jon. Together the couple have struggled through failed IVF and surrogacy attempts but are now excited to welcome their child thanks to Jon’s cousin Kelly acting as their surrogate. Jaclyn said: “Something that I wish people knew about MRKH syndrome is that it doesn’t make me or anyone diagnosed less of a woman, just because you can’t give birth to a baby, there are many other ways to mother."
