India: 73-year-old woman gives birth to twins

A 73-year old woman has given birth to twins through in vitro fertilization (IVF) at a private clinic in India.

The woman, Mangayamma Yaramati, on Wednesday, September 4, delivered the twins following a caesarean section operation.

The information from the doctors at the clinic indicates the mother and the babies are healthy.

Yaramati told BBC she and her 82-year-old husband had always wanted children and had tried to concieve without success.

“We are incredibly happy,” said her husband, Sitarama Rajarao, adding that the couple got pregnant within two months of starting IVF treatment.

“We tried many times and saw numerous doctors,” Yaramati said adding, “so this is the happiest time of my life.”

She added that she had been excluded from social gatherings because she was not a mother.

They would call me a childless lady,” she said

Given her advanced age Yamarati was admitted to the hospital throughout her pregnancy days.
