A 74-year old woman has reportedly given birth to a set of twin-baby-girls after 54-years in marriage.
An Indian newspaper, The Hans India reported that the delivery was done in a private hospital in Guntur city on Thursday.
The paper quoted doctors as reporting that the new “Indian Sarah” Yerramatti Raja Rao who hails from Nelapartipadu in East Godavari district married her husband, Mangayamma on March 22, 1962.
The marriage was fruitless for decades until Yerramatti read about a pregnant 55-year-old woman residing near her house. The neighbour, according to reports, became pregnant through In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF).
Yerramatti drew inspiration from the neighbour and along with her husband approached Ahalya Nursing Home in Guntur city.
They met IVF experts who collected Mangayamma’s husband sperm and tried it on the IVF system.
The doctors’ efforts were fruitful. Since then, Mangayamma was under the supervision of doctors in the nursing home.
Dr.Umashankar performed the cesarean on the 74-year-old woman today. She delivered two baby girls.
Dr. Umashankar said: ” It is another world record. Yerramatti and her husband Mangamma are also happy”.
