An Indian woman claims to have had her first child at the age of 70, making her one of the oldest first-time mothers in the world.
Jivunben Rabari and her husband Maldhari, 75, proudly showed off their son - whose name they have not revealed - to reporters as they said he had been conceived through IVF.
Rabari has said she does not have ID to prove her age, but told reporters it was 70, which would make her one of the oldest first mothers in the world. However, another Indian woman, Erramatti Mangayamma, is believed to be the oldest after having twin girls in September 2019 at the age of 74.
Rabari and Maldhari, from a small village called Mora in Gujurat, India, have been married for 45 years and have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby for decades.
They were able to have a child through IVF, which can be effective after menopause.
The couple's doctor Naresh Bhanushali said it was 'one of the rarest cases I have ever seen'.
Dr Bhanushali said: 'When they first came to us, we told them that they couldn't have a child at such an old age, but they insisted.
'They said that many of their family members did it as well. This is one of the rarest cases I have ever seen.'
The chances of a woman in her 70s getting pregnant naturally are virtually zero due to most women going through the menopause between their late 40s and early 50s.
But the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) claims that any woman of any age can get pregnant with medical help provided that she has a 'normal uterus', even if she no longer has ovaries.

but that is just me.
I tell ya, that MRNA technology is some amazing stuff.
What selfish people..
That’s some Bible stuff right there. Keep an eye on that kiddo.
But when he is making big bucks and supporting you at 110, you’ll thank him. :)
Sarah: “75?? Amateur!”
from the article
The pensioner, of Andhra Pradesh state, revealed she was inspired to try for a baby after her 55-year-old neighbour conceived.
I guess that goes double if it were her husband who impregnated the neighbour.
The kid will most likely be an orphan before 10 years old.
Was her name Hagar?
Talk about a “surprise baby!”
IVF at that age (if it’s true) would mean she gave birth to a baby that was her husband’s and an egg donor’s.
That kind of takes the surprise out of it.
Does it hurt less at 70?
But she still managed to cast her ballot for Joe.
Little kids can be like lit firecrackers going off, with all their natural energy and curiosity. How will these two parents keep up? Maybe they’re wealthy enough to hire a Nanny long term, in which case, she, the Nanny would be doing much of the raising, not the elder parents.
There’s always a first time for everything.
Maybe it will work for the three of them.
It would be like trying to stuff a raw oyster in a kid’s piggy bank
Selfishness with no regard to the child who will likely be an orphan before the age of 20......
His name is John...
God bless them both and their child. They are doing what God has commanded us to do.
Most folks don’t understand that when America decided to fall full-force into birth control so they could have more stuff and less children, along with the abortion of their children, it began the decline of America. Having less children causes a decline of the culture.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth.”
Jeremiah’s Letter to the Exiles
29 These are the words of the letter that Jeremiah the prophet sent from Jerusalem to the surviving elders of the exiles, and to the priests, the prophets, and all the people, whom Nebuchadnezzar had taken into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon. 2 This was after King Jeconiah and the queen mother, the eunuchs, the officials of Judah and Jerusalem, the craftsmen, and the metal workers had departed from Jerusalem. 3 The letter was sent by the hand of Elasah the son of Shaphan and Gemariah the son of Hilkiah, whom Zedekiah king of Judah sent to Babylon to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. It said: 4 “Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat their produce. 6 Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease.
