74-year-old woman gave birth to two children

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The woman’s name is Mangamma Yaramati. The birth certificate says that she recently turned 74 years old. Together with her 82-year-old husband, she used IVF to get pregnant.

Then the woman was able to give birth to two healthy children using Cesarean section.

An elderly couple said that for a long time they wanted children, but did not dare to do so. For this, the Yaramati family was not respected in their native village. They tried to bring life to life many times and went around a large number of doctors, but the necessary specialists were found only now.

A day after giving birth, the husband of Mangayamma Yaramati suddenly experienced a stroke, but at this time his condition is stable and he is in the hospital under supervision. When asked how the children would live if something suddenly happened to the couple, the elderly parents answered that “everything is in God’s hands, we have no power over this”.

At the moment, Mangamma Yaramati is the oldest woman in the world who managed to give birth to children. Prior to this, the record belonged to another Indian woman, Daljinder Kaur, who gave birth to a child at 72 years old.

However, her age has not been documented. It was also reported that in 2007 the British broke the record for the age of natural pregnancy. A 59-year-old woman was born into a completely healthy boy.

Using in vitro fertilization technology can theoretically increase this age to any number. The only problem is whether the mother’s body can withstand pregnancy and childbirth.
