A woman in Haryana who became the world's oldest mother at the age of 70 to give birth celebrated her daughter's first birthday Friday and says she does not mind having a second child.
Rajo Devi, who hit world headlines and old enough to be even a great grand-mother, had delivered a healthy baby girl after an in vitro fertility treatment.
In vitro fertilization (IVF) is the joining of a woman’s egg and a man’s sperm in a laboratory. Normally, an egg and sperm are fertilized inside a woman’s body.
Rajo Devi and husband Bala Ram (73) married when they were teens. But to be parents, they had to wait for 55 years. Now she says she does not mind having a second child.
She also says that she plans to breastfeed her “for at least three years”. And, who knows, maybe she will.
