After 46 years of trying, a 68 and 70 year old couple gave birth to twins…
In Nigeria, a 68- and 70-year-old couple gave birth to twins.
The children’s father explained to the media that it took 46 years to achieve a good result.
They have undergone three failed in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts. Their fourth attempt was successful.
Despite her age, the Nigerian woman not only managed to deliver the babies, but also gave birth to them at 37 weeks pregnant.
Obviously, the 68-year-old mother did not give birth naturally.
Doctors performed a cesarean section. To the amazement of the doctors, the mother was fine, the children were born healthy and strong.
The woman gave birth at a Lagos hospital, where she was under the supervision of specialists throughout her pregnancy due to her age.
The father was satisfied. He said his whole life he had dreamed of that moment.
Doctors point out that through IVF women can get pregnant at any age, but it is not advisable after the age of 50.
Late pregnancy can actually lead to serious complications, both for the pregnant woman and her unborn child.
