Indian Woman Gives Birth at 70 with Help of IVF

May 11, 2016

(The Telegraph) – An Indian woman has given birth to her first child at the age of 72 after undergoing fertility treatment at a controversial IVF clinic. Daljinder Kaur gave birth to a healthy boy last month at the National Fertility Centre in Haryana state, which offers fertility treatment to women who are decades beyond their menopause. Although her exact date of birth is unclear, Mrs Kaur told doctors she was around seven years younger than her husband Mohinder Singh Gill, who is 79. If correct, that would make her the world’s oldest mother.
