Lesbian non-biological mother recognised as birth mum

'She shared project of assisted procreation'

(ANSA) - Naples, July 5 - In a revolutionary sentence, a Naples appeals court on Thursday recognised the non-biological mother in a lesbian couple as the mother of a child from its birth. The second mum is also a birth mother, the court ruled, because "she accepted and shared the project of assisted procreation".
    The court upheld an appeal on stepchild adoption of a child born from her partner using assisted fertility.
    The second mother has been awarded the status of birth mother and not just adoptive mother.
