A 74 year old woman from Andhra Pradesh gave birth to twin daughters in a private hospital in Guntur. The couple were married in 1962 and have been trying for a kid since then. They didn’t succeed in their efforts in spite of enjoying good health. It was then that they approached a private hospital and went ahead with the IVF procedure. Doctors collected semen from her husband and using the IVF technique, combined it with the ovum of another woman.
This treatment was successful and the woman conceived. She was kept under the supervision of three teams of doctors including a nutritionist, a cardiologist and a pulmonologist. The twin baby girls were born through caesarean section operation. They weighed 1.5 kgs each and have been kept under medical observation. The couple have finally realised their dream of becoming parents albeit at an old age.
