A 72-year-old woman in India has become one of the oldest first-time moms in the world after giving birth to a healthy baby boy. She not only had a natural birth but she is also breastfeeding her bundle of joy.
Daljinder Kaur gave birth to her first child after two years of IVF treatments. Kaur has been married to her husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, 79, for 47 years but they never had any children. They won’t be trying for another baby and they vow to give their baby boy the best life possible. They’ve tried for 50 years to have a baby? Wow this story is so heart-warming 🥰
72-year-old woman gives birth to first healthy baby and even breastfeeds said this pensioner has fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a mother.
This is Jivunben and her husband Maldhari’s (55) first baby. The couple have been married for 45 years and lost hope for decades that they’d ever have kids.
Although the new mom doesn’t have an identification document to prove her age, she claims she is 72 years old, making her one of the oldest first-time mothers in the world.
After two weeks of IVF, the doctor performed a sonograph and saw a fetus developing in the pensioner’s tummy.
“Luckily, she conceived at the first attempt,” the doctor said.
They later discovered that the baby had no deformities and allowed the pregnancy to go on for eight months before conducting a Caesarean section on Jivunben last month.
“Her blood pressure was high, and we had to deliver the child via C-section in the eighth month of the gestation period.
“We had a team of doctors including a cardiologist and a physician on standby … anything could have gone wrong because of her age.
Dr Bhanushali shared that the couple were happy then and the mother relaxed as well . The baby was healthy, and we were continuously following the case.
God grant them many years to enjoy their baby
The baby was conceived using the couple’s own egg and sperm. It was now “healthy and hearty” after weighing just two kilogrammes (4.4 pounds) at birth on April 19, the National Fertility and Test Tube centre said.
“People say what will happen to the child once we die. But I have full faith in God. God is omnipotent and omnipresent, he will take care of everything,” he said.
Anurag Bishnoi, who runs the fertility clinic, said he was initially sceptical about going ahead with in vitro fertilisation (IVF), but tests showed Kaur was able to carry the unborn baby.
“I first tried to avoid the case because she looked very frail. Then we made her undergo all the tests and once all the results were okay we went ahead,” the doctor said.
The fact that she & her husband never gave up even after nearly 50 years of failing to conceive. Ahh it just melts my heart that they never gave up & they FINALLY got that sweet, sweet baby they had always wanted ♥️♥️ I’m so glad she was not only healthy enough to conceive & carry him, but to be able to breastfeed as well. That’s amazing. I wish her, her husband, & that sweet boy of theirs MANY, MANY long happy years together ♥️♥️♥️
