Indian woman, 73, gives birth to twin girls
6 September 2019

A 73-year-old woman in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh has given birth to twin girls.

Doctors delivered the twins, who were born following IVF treatment, on Thursday.

"The mother and the babies are doing well," Dr Uma Sankar, the woman's doctor, told BBC Telugu.

Mangayamma Yaramati said she and her husband, who is 82 years old, have always wanted children but had been unable to conceive until now.

"We are incredibly happy," her husband Sitarama Rajarao told BBC Telugu on Thursday, hours after the babies were born.

But just a day later, Mr Rajarao suffered a sudden stroke and is currently being treated in hospital.

"Nothing is in our hands. Whatever should happen will happen. It is all in the hands of God," Mr Rajarao had said when asked who would care for the children in case anything were to happen to the couple due to their advanced age.

Having children was important to the couple, who also said that they felt stigmatised in their village.

"They would call me a childless lady," Ms Yaramati said.

"We tried many times and saw numerous doctors," she added, "so this is the happiest time of my life."

The twin girls were delivered by Caesarean section, which is the usual method in such rare cases.

In 2016, another Indian woman in her 70s, Daljinder Kaur, gave birth to a boy.

Poor woman and her husband. Being regarded as incomplete by their community and shunned because they were childless. So much so that they feel compelled to get pregnant at 73. What an absolutely awful environment to live in. I feel sorry for them. And the twins who will possibly be orphans in ten years time as their pensioner parents succumb to the inevitability of old age.

Unfortunately, its the common atmosphere in backward, conservative world, which is the majority of the world...

When Yaramati visited the Ahalya IVF & Nursing Home, she reportedly concealed her age to receive IVF treatment.

Were the medical team blind?
