Though Ramadevi may only be the second oldest Indian to conceive after 70-year-old Rajo Devi of Haryana, her doctors say she is the oldest in the country to give birth to twins.

Ramadevi gave birth to a baby boy and a girl weighing 1.7 kg and 1.3 kg respectively by caesarean, on July 16 and the mother and babies are "doing well", said Dr S Pappachan, infertility specialist of Lifeline Superspeciality Hospital, Adoor.

Perhaps, what makes Ramadevi of Oachira in Kollam district special is the saga of miscarriages and infant deaths that have preceded this success.

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.
