A 74-year old woman has delivered twin baby girls after 54-years of marriage. The Indian newspaper, The Hans India reported that the delivery was done in a private hospital in Guntur city on Thursday.
The marriage was fruitless for decades until Yerramatti read about a pregnant 55 year-old woman residing near her house. The woman became pregnant through IVF.
Mangayamma drew inspiration from the neighbour and along with her husband approached Ahalya Nursing Home in Guntur city.
They met IVF expert Dr.Sanakkayala Umashankar. The doctors collected Mangayamma’s husband sperm and tried in the IVF system. The doctors efforts were fruitful. Since then, Mangayamma was under the supervision of doctors in the nursing home.
Dr.Umashankar performed the cesarean on the 74 year-old woman today. She delivered two baby girls.
Dr. Umashankar said: ” It is another world record. Yerramatti and her husband Mangamma are also happy”.
This child bearing at 74 is simply an India record and not a world record as a woman called Anatolia Vertadella gave birth at 101-year-old an Italian woman. She gave birth to a 9-pound baby in 2016 after a controversial ovary transplant widely criticised by medical professionals because of her advanced age.
