INTERNATIONAL:  Indian woman, 72, gives birth through IVF

h-02500362-edit-1-736x414SKY NEWS – An Indian woman who has given birth at the age of 72 through IVF treatment says her life is now complete.

Daljinder Kaur and her 79-year-old husband became parents last month following two years of treatment at a clinic in the northern state of Haryana.

The baby was conceived using the couple’s own egg and sperm and, despite being very small at birth, weighing just two kilograms (4.4lbs),  was now “healthy and hearty”, the National Fertility and Test Tube centre said.

Mrs Kaur said she did not believe she was too old to be a first-time mother and said she felt very well and fit enough to cope.

She said she and her husband of 46 years had almost given up hope of ever having a child and had faced ridicule in a country where infertility is sometimes seen as a curse from God.

  1. I am happy for them, though it is very selfish at this Age. BUT, How will they be able to run after their 3 year old, (if they live that long).
