A 57-year-old woman has given birth to twins in Perth, setting a new record for the oldest mum to give birth in Australia.
The Sunday Times newspaper says the woman gave birth by caesarian section after having IVF treatment with donated eggs in India. The woman is believed to be from India, but spent the duration of her pregnancy in Perth, accompanied by her husband.
In 2007, a 56-year-old woman gave birth after receiving treatment from a Queensland fertility centre.
TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Enhancing Fertility Naturally: Holistic Therapies for a Successful Pregnancy
-- outlines ways in which you can improve your fertility through alternative therapies, diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques and avoid some of the hazards associated with conventional treatments.
It discusses the most common causes of in-fertility and explains how to determine which therapy is most appropriate for you.
In vitro fertilization, conventional medicine's most prescribed remedy for in-fertility problems, is expensive, dangerous, and has a success rate of only 14 percent, yet few of the one in six couples that experience in-fertility are aware of the effectiveness and safety provided by the wide range of alternative treatments.
Thoroughly researched and packed full of invaluable advice and tips, the book explores such therapies as acupuncture, reflexology, homeopathy, cranial osteopathy, aromatherapy, and herbalism.
The author includes case histories for each of the therapies discussed, showing how the therapies helped couples overcome both primary and secondary in-fertility in order to have the baby they longed for.
