Indian Woman Gives Birth at 70-Years-Old, But How?

It doesn't seem physically possible, but she has a healthy baby boy.

Last week it was good news for Janet Jackson, who announced she was pregnant at 49. 

Now an Indian woman from New Delhi gave birth at 70-years-old, after years of trying to conceive. 

Daljinder Kaur had a baby boy she named Armaan last month, after undergoing two years of IVF treatment at the National Fertility Centre in Haryana, which offers fertility treatment to women who are much older. Her husband is 79, they’ve been married for 46 years. 

“We will raise him and give him a proper education. I had faith in Almighty that I will have my own baby, and Waheguru answered my prayers,” Daljinder told The Telegraph.

The couple say they had almost lost hope of ever having a child, yet still gave it one more try.

"God heard our prayers. My life feels complete now. 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," the new mom said. "When we saw the (IVF) advert, we thought we should also give it a try as I badly wanted to have a baby of my own.”

The baby was conceived using the couple's own egg and sperm and was born April 19. 

In 2008, a 72-year-old woman from Uttar Pradesh gave birth to twins in 2008, also through IVF.
