Doctor defends pregnant woman, 56Tuesday 23 January 2001 - The director of a Harley Street clinic which helped a 56-year-old woman to conceive twins accused critics yesterday of wanting a "police state" where people could not plan their own families.

Professor Ian Craft, of the London Gynaecology and Fertility Centre, strongly defended its decision to treat Lynne Bezant, who will become the oldest mother of twins recorded in Britain.

Mrs Bezant and her husband Derek, 55, from Oxfordshire, are expecting the babies in June. They already have three grown-up children.

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.
