A 70-year-old woman in Gujarat's Kutch has finally fulfilled her dream of motherhood by giving birth to her first child.

The chances of getting pregnant at the age of 70 are almost non-existent due go menopause and women over the age of 45 cannot conceive without the help of IVF.

 

As per to a leading daily, the couple has been married for 45 years. Rabari, and her husband Maldhari who is 75 years old has tried to conceive for many years, but to no avail. Although, the couple still didn't lose all hope and resorted to IVF.

 

Dr Naresh Bhanushali while speaking to a leading daily, has said, "When they first came to us, we told them that they couldn't have a child at such an old age, but they insisted."

 

The doctor said that the couple informed them that many of their family members opted for this and added, "This is one of the rarest cases I have ever seen!"

 

However, the IVF process was challenging for the doctors in view to the age and several other factors related to it.

 

Dr Naresh Bhanushali stated, "We first made her menstrual cycle regular by prescribing oral medicines."

 

The doctor further stated that they widened her uterus which has shrunk owing to age.

 

Dr Bhanushali added, "We fertilized her eggs and created blastocyst and transferred it to the uterus.''

 

At eight months of pregnancy of the 70 years old Rabari, the doctors performed a C-section surgery and she delivered her first baby. The doctors informed that the baby is in good health.
