A 74-year-old woman has become the oldest new mum in the world.
Erramatti Mangayamma spent 60 years trying to get pregnant with her 80-year-old husband Rajarao.
And after decades of dreaming of a family, the Indian couple’s wishes have finally come true.
With the help of IVF, Erramatti fell pregnant with twins.
The proud pensioner has since given birth to the babies – and they’re said to be “safe and healthy
Erramatti is from the small Nelapartipadu village in the Eastern Godavari district of India.
Last year, doctors gave her the all clear for IVF treatment.
The fertilisation process was carried out at Ahalya Hospital – and it proved to be a success.
On Thursday, doctors delivered the babies by caesarean.
Doctor Umasankar said: “As she is old, she cannot release eggs so we got eggs from a donor and collected sperm from her husband.
Luckily, she conceived in the first cycle itself and she was found to be pregnant this January.
It was smooth, as there were no health complications.
Each baby is weighing approximately 2kgs and both the babies are healthy.
I don’t think she will have any major health issues in the post-delivery period.
However, she cannot breast-feed the babies. But no worries.
We can feed the babies with milk obtained from the milk bank
