A 75-year-old (70plus is confirmed) woman has delivered a baby girl in Kota via IVF late on Saturday night.
The underweight child, weighing 600 gm, is critical and has been shifted to the newborn intensive care unit (NICU) of another hospital. A team of pediatricians is monitoring the child.
Dr Abhilasha Kinkar, a doctor at a private hospital said to HT -"The woman, who had earlier adopted a kid, wanted to have her own child and hence had consulted the doctors about the possibilities of her becoming a mother. She wanted to try IVF."
“The elderly woman had no child and she had adopted a boy of their relatives but her daughter-in-law used to beat her after which she decided to give birth to a child of her own,” said Dr Kinkar.
The woman conceived the child in March through IVF technique.
“I comprehended her complications of conceiving a child at such elderly age when she approached me around a year ago but she was adamant,” she said.
The baby had to be delivered prematurely via C-section after 6.5 months of pregnancy given the age of the mother, who was medically and physically weak.
The woman, who belongs to a farmer's family with a rural background, had insisted to have her own baby, said Dr Kinkar.
“Apart from elderly age, the woman has a single lung following tuberculosis 45 years ago and also has hypertension so the C-section was difficult but it was done successfully last night,” she said.
She said that at this age, she will face difficulty in lactation and will have to depend on cattle milk or milk powder for the baby.
