IVF helps 55-year-old give birth

Shobha Joshi and her husband Vidyadhar (54) had the baby after nearly 35 years of married life.

The couple from Dhule had come to Thane after seeing a newspaper article on Thane's first surrogate child.

The Joshi's made an arduous yet hopeful journey from Dhule to the fertility clinic at Hiranandani Meadows in August last year.

When the couple approached us, we were in a dilemma because of the age factor. But at the same time, we saw their hope and determination. We conducted all the necessary tests, said Dr Sandeep Mane.

Barring blood pressure, there was no other problem. We had to operate on her the very next day, because there was some abnormality in the cavity of her womb. We cleaned up the cavity through surgery and prepared it for in-vitro fertilization (IVF).

The next part of the treatment took place in September 2009.

Since the Joshi's were not financially well-off, Dr Mane made arrangements for Shobha's stay at his parent's house in Dombivli.

The embryos were transferred into Shobha's womb in October. After two weeks, the pregnancy test showed positive results.

In November, an ultrasound scan was performed, which revealed a twin pregnancy.

We were contemplating on whether to have twin pregnancies due to her age. But after a sonography was done in the later stage, it was found that only one baby showed growth. The next dilemma was whether to have a normal delivery or a caesarean, said Mane.

We decided to have a caesarean keeping the health of the baby and mother in mind. It was only due to the couple's belief that the baby was born without any problems.

The Joshi's said that they are now truly satisfied and therefore have decided to name the baby Saarthak.

We are fortunate to finally be called as a mother and a father. We always knew that we will have a baby after we came here, said Shobha.

Vidyadhar, a priest, said: When my nephews and nieces were born, I was equally happy. But today even I am a father. I'll do everything to give my son a good upbringing.
