A 74-year-old woman from India has become the oldest mother ever to give birth and doctors are calling her twin baby girls a “medical miracle.”
Erramatti Mangayamma and father Yaramati Sitarama Rajarao, 78-years-old, used a standard in vitro fertilization procedure. The good news is that the full-term babies were delivered by cesarean section and are doing just great.
The couple had tried throughout their 57-year marriage to conceive but were unsuccessful. They say that people look at them as if they had just committed a sin but added, “We are the happiest couple on earth today. We have our own children.”
A team of 10 doctors helped with the pregnancy and delivery. The mom also had to pass a psychological examination to make sure she was mentally prepared to be a mom.
