72-year-old Indian mom is possibly world’s oldest to give birth to first child using IVF

Many couples have turned to IVF treatment with the hopes of getting a child. Likewise, a couple in their 70s sought help from IVF treatment and their wish is finally granted.

72-year-old Daljinder Kaur successfully gave birth to her first child in April 2016 after receiving IVF treatment for the third time. The baby boy was born in the National Fertility Centre in Haryana state, India. The center offers fertility treatment for women who are already decades into their menopause.

After being married for 46 years, she and her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, were overjoyed to have their own baby. “Everyone asked me to adopt a baby but I never wanted to. Now I have my own child,” she told The Telegraph in an interview.

“We will raise him and give him a proper education. I had faith in Almighty that I will have my own baby, and Waheguru (Sikh term for God) answered my prayers,” she added.

The couple had seen an IVF advertisement and decided to give it a try.

“God heard our prayers. My life feels complete now,” she told Agence France-Presse.

“I am looking after the baby all by myself. I feel so full of energy. My husband is also very caring and helps me as much as he can,” she said.
