Indian woman gives birth to healthy baby boy at 70s

An Indian woman and her husband who are both in their 70s celebrated birth of a baby, as the first successful pregnancy in 46 years of marriage. Daljinder Kaur gave birth last month after two years of treatment using donor eggs at a fertility clinic in northern state of Haryana.

Indian woman gives birth to healthy baby boy at 70s


She must be the oldest mother to give birth, who is currently in 70s which is uncommon in India but can't suggest exact age as she does not have a birth certificate.

Anurag Bishnoi, embryologist and owner of the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby centre in Hisar, told the Guardian he believed she could be 72. “She has said she is five to seven years younger than her husband, and his birth certificate shows he was born on 12/04/1937,” he said.

Kaur said she and her husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, a farmer, had almost lost hope of having their own child and had faced ridicule in a country where infertility is sometimes seen as a curse from God.

“God heard our prayers. My life feels complete now,” she told Agence France-Presse from the northern city of Amritsar. “I am looking after the baby all by myself. I feel so full of energy. My husband is also very caring and helps me as much as he can.”

Bishnoi, who set up the clinic after gaining a master’s in clinical embryology at the University of Leeds, has carried out successful IVF on several geriatric couples. In 2008 one of his patients, Rajo Devi Lohan, became a first-time mother at 70 when she gave birth to a baby girl. Another woman became the mother of triplets at 66.

“They were donor eggs. She had two attempts and then a gap of six months. And then on the third attempt, it was successful. For them it is a time of great happiness. Especially because her brother, also, didn’t have any children. They were two families, and both didn’t have children. In Indian law they don’t allow adoption after 45 years of age.

He said he recognised that some people may consider IVF in older women unethical. “My point is if you put a restriction [on receiving IVF treatment] of 45 or 50 years, you will have to put a restriction on the males also. If they are talking about ethics, the [age] should be the same for both.”

As to how the couple would cope, he said: “They have relatives who are ready to help take care of the baby. And you can make anyone a guardian.”

Gill told AFP he was unfazed by their age. “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.”
