Andhra Pradesh woman becomes mother at 74

Amaravati: A 74-year-old woman has given birth to twins in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday, thanks to  ‘assisted reproductive’ medical techniques like In Vitro fertilization (IVF).

E Mangayamma of Draksharamam in East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh delivered twin baby girls through IVF in a private hospital in Guntur.

Both the mother and the newborn twins are safe and stable, Gynecologist Sanakkayala Aruna, under whose care the Caesarean section was performed, told reporters.

“She remained healthy as she did not have diabetes or blood pressure. Since she is 74-year-old, we had to perform Caesarean section to deliver the babies,” Dr Aruna said.

This, doctors feel, could be a new world record.

The previous record was said to be held by a 66-year-old Spanish woman in 2006, according to the Guinness World Records.

Married to E Raja Rao in 1962, Mangayamma remained issueless all these years.

Notably, Dr Aruna had previously served as Health Minister in the State during Chandrababu Naidu regime between 1999 and 2004.
