In India, a 70-year-old woman gave birth to a son through in vitro fertilization (IVF). For her, this child was the firstborn.
Jiwunben Rabari, who claims to be 70 years old, and her 75-year-old husband Maldhari have been married together for about 45 years, trying in vain to conceive a child. IVF was the last hope for them.
The doctors initially refused the couple, pointing out that at this age there was practically no hope for conception, and bearing a child would also be a huge test. However, Rabari and Maldhari insisted, saying that many in their family had already resorted to in vitro fertilization.
“This is one of the rarest cases I have ever seen,” said doctor Naresh Bhanushali.
Notably, the couple is illiterate and lives in the remote village of Kemora in the Indian state of Gujarat. And the woman did not even have documents confirming her age.
