CALGARY -- After more than 40 years of trying to get pregnant, a Calgary woman has given birth to twins at the age of 60.

Alberta Health Services officials confirmed Ranjit Hayer gave birth on Tuesday - making her one of the oldest women to deliver a baby in Canada - and that mother and children are in good condition.

"I always said there should be a baby," Hayer was quoted by CBC Radio yesterday.

"I had my heart set on it, I wanted a baby."

After 43 years of trying to get pregnant with her husband, which included surgery and three miscarriages, Hayer reportedly underwent in vitro fertilization last year in India using a donor egg before returning to Canada.

-- At Wu's Healing Center in San Francisco, miracles are happening.

Women and their partners come to the clinic--often from across the country-- to fulfill a passionately held yet fragile dream: to conceive and deliver the healthy baby that mainstream doctors have told them they cannot have.

Using traditional Chinese medical techniques, sometimes integrated with Western fertility treatments, Dr. Angela Wu is helping these couples experience the miracle of birth.

At a time when one in five U.S. couples is struggling with fertility problems, this practical and uplifting volume, filled with the inspirational stories of Dr. Wu's grateful patients, will be a godsend.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
