Yet Another 70 Year Old Woman Gives Birth In India

December 8, 2008

India (ChattahBox) – In a move that is becoming shockingly common, the second 70 year old woman to give birth in India has had her first daughter. The implications on the abilities of recent medical technology and understanding to produce such results are amazing, and may hold the key to helping with other current infertility problems facing women of all ages across the world.

After a IFV treatment, Indian local Rajo Devi gave birth to a healthy baby girl, and she and her 72 year old husband – who is also childless after two previous marriages – couldn’t be happier.

“We’ve been longing for a child since we married many years ago, but it didn’t work for us,” Devi told reporters. “For decades we’ve had to put up with gossip because we’ve remained childless, but those sad days are now over.”
It isn’t clear what sperm and egg were used for the in vitro fertilization, but the fact that a woman of her age was able to successfully maintain and complete a pregnancy is giving hope to tens of thousand of women over forty who have thought in was too late.

“IVF has revolutionized the way infertility is viewed,” commented Dr Anurag Bishnoi, the doctor in charge of Devi’s treatment. ‘It’s no longer a social taboo or a divine curse, as many saw it. It can now be treated scientifically and stigmas are brushed aside.’

    That is just wrong!! How could someone do that to their child? When she is 80 her child will only be 10. She will probably die before she gets a chance to be a real mother. That child is going to have a rough upbringing; it is just disgusting how they only think about how badly they want a baby and have no consideration for what their child will go through thanks to a decision like this.

    I can only hope that the ivf clinics in the US would never allow this to happen.
