Image: Woman of 56 gives birth to twinsA teacher of 56 has given birth to twins after defying medical advice not to become pregnant.

Lynne Bezant and her husband Derek had spent £5,500 on IVF treatment, even though they already had three grown-up children.

They said they were lonely after their family grew up and left home.

Babies David and Susan were born on Thursday, almost a month early, weighing 3lbs 4oz and 4lbs 15oz respectively.

Their arrival at Horton General Hospital in Banbury, Oxfordshire, made Mrs Bezant the oldest British woman to give birth to twins.

She said: I'm just so happy, it's unbelievable. Mrs Bezant became pregnant after treatment at the London Gynaecological and Fertility Clinic, the only one in Britain offering the service to women older than 51. They used eggs from a younger donor.

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.
