[Ed. – It’s all about live and let live here, but some of these things do seem just a bit over the top.]
Seventy-two-year old Daljinder Kaur delivered a healthy baby boy, Arman Singh, on April 19 this year — 46 years after her marriage and about 20 years after her menopause.
Desperate to have a child, Kaur’s wish could be fulfilled through the in-vitro fertilisation (IVF-test tube) technique, wherein the eggs and sperm are fertilised outside the womb, in a test tube.
Kaur’s 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, had been travelling with her from Amritsar in Punjab to Hisar in Haryana since 2013 to ensure the success of the treatment.
After two failed IVF cycles, Kaur finally conceived in July last year. …
This is the second case at the centre where a 70-year-old woman has delivered successfully through IVF.
