74-year-old woman Erramatti Mangayamma gave birth to twins using in vitro, dad is 80 years old

A 74-year-old woman Erramatti Mangayamma has given birth to twins with her 80-year-old husband, using in vitro fertilization (IVF) technology. according to Dr. Sanakayyala Umashankar, the director of Ahalya IVF.

“The surgery went well … the mother and the babies are all healthy with no complications,” Umashankar told CNN.

Though Mangayamma and her husband, Raja Rao, were married in 1962, they were never able to have children naturally, and Mangayamma went into menopause 25 years ago. The woman from Andhra Pradesh, India, gave birth via c-section last week using the IVF technique.

Given Mangayamma’s age, the doctors performed a C-section and will keep her under observation for the next 21 days.

“We are not allowing the mother to breastfeed and the babies will be fed through the milk bank,” Umashankar said.

“She decided to try the method and approached us. We were surprised at her willpower. We conducted all the medical tests and found that she was medically fit for conception through IVF,” Umashankar told the Hindustan Times, explaining that she had a “strong desire” to be a mother. “So, we tried with an egg obtained from another donor and fertilized it with the sperm of Raja Rao through IVF method. Luckily, she conceived in the first cycle itself and she was found to be pregnant this January. Her health condition had been constantly monitored by cardiologists, pulmonologists, gynaecologists and nutritionist all these days. Since it is very difficult for her to have normal delivery in view of her age, we had to perform a Caesarian operation.”

“She is very confident now. More confident than ever in her life and she is looking forward to the next chapter of her life with the kids,” Umashankar added.

According to Mangayamma, she was stigmatized in her village because she never had children. “They would call me a childless lady,” she told the BBC. “We tried many times and saw numerous doctors, so this is the happiest time of my life.”
