A 70-year-old woman gave birth to her first child in India. Jivunben Rabari and her husband Maldhari conceived their son by in vitro fertilization.
Jivunben Rabari, 70, and her husband Maldhari, 74, gave birth to their first child. Originally from a village called Mora in Gujurat, India, the couple conceived their son through in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Jivunben did not have ID to prove his age but said he was 70 years old. Doctors were skeptical but today hail “one of the rarest cases they have seen”. Indeed, she is approaching the record for the oldest woman to have given birth to a child. Another Indian woman, Erramatti Mangayamma, is said to be the oldest after having twins in September 2019 at the age of 74.
