70 Year-old Indian Woman Welcomes First Baby

An Indian woman has become the world’s oldest mother after giving birth to her first child at the age of 70.

Rajo Devi, 70, who married 50 years ago gave birth to a baby girl on November 28 after receiving fertility treatment.

Her doctor Anurag Bishnoi, from the Hisar fertility centre in Haryana province 80 miles north of New Delhi, said both the mother and baby girl, who weighed a little over 3lbs, were in good health.

Rajo, who had become menopausal over two decades ago said,

“We longed for a child all these years sand now are very happy to have one in the twilight years of our life.”

The baby’s gestation wasn’t given, but it is probably safe to say she arrived 7-8 weeks early.
