Technology propels late baby boomFifty nine-year-old Damayanti Jena from Kendrapada is one among late starters in the state to give birth to a baby girl, 38 years after her marriage.

Undergoing fertility treatment at a clinic in Bhubaneswar, Damayanti gave birth to a healthy baby for the first time on July 16.

"I am happy that I became a father at this ripe age. My wife has fulfilled my dream of having a child and gave my family an heir," said Damayanti's 70-year-old husband, Mohan Jena, a retired college teacher.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
The Brotherhood of Joseph: A Father's Memoir of Infertility and Adoption in the 21st Century, by Brooks Hansen. Publisher: Modern Times; First Edition edition (May 27, 2008)-The Brotherhood of Joseph: A Father's Memoir of Infertility and Adoption in the 21st Century
by Brooks Hansen

-- Offering men a chance to be heard and women a rare opportunity to view the struggle with infertility from a male perspective, The Brotherhood of Joseph brings to life the anger, frustration, humor, heartbreak, and sense of helplessness that come to dominate the husband's role.

As his remarkable account reaches its finale in Siberia, however, Hansen's once again becomes the story of a husband and a wife who, even after years of medical frustration and fruitless paperwork, still must take one last risk together and trust in their most basic instincts before their new family can be born.

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.
