Can 67-year-old women carry and give birth to babies? Well, this lady defeats those standards!
A 67-year-old woman who used to be a respected doctor just gave birth to a baby girl, making her the country’s oldest mother.
CNN reports that Tian gave birth on Friday at Zaozhuang Maternity and Child Health Hospital in the Shandong province.
Ironically, she had worked as a maternity doctor at the same hospital.
She allegedly got pregnant naturally after using her expertise to self-administer Chinese fertility treatments on herself.
“We were quite lucky, given that the mother was at an advanced maternal age and had a variety of complications,” Liu Wencheng, who delivered the baby said.
The baby was born via c-section and is said to have weighed 5.6 pounds.
“During the cesarean section, we found that Tian’s ovaries were just like the ones of a 40-year-old woman. They hadn’t shrunk like a 60-year-old’s ovaries would have, which might explain how she got pregnant naturally,” added Liu.
The mother and daughter were sent to intensive care after the delivery, but, all signs are normal.
