Vienna, March 28 (DPA)
An Austrian woman had her second child when aged 66 after becoming a first-time mother at 61.

A spokeswoman at the hospital in southern Austria where the birth took place Tuesday said that mother and child were doing fine.

According to media reports the pregnancy was made possible by artificial insemination that had been performed abroad. The hospital released no further information on the patient.

Austria's oldest mother is also one of the oldest women worldwide to have given birth to a healthy child.




About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
