World’s oldest mom, 73, gives birth
A 73-year-old Indian woman has become what is believed to be the oldest woman to give birth in the world – after giving birth to TWINS.
Erramatti Mangayamma has waited 60 YEARS to have children with her 80-year-old husband, Rajarao, a farmer.
But she is now the proud mother of twins after undergoing IVF.
Erramatti, from the small Nelapartipadu village in the Eastern Godavari district of India, was given the all-clear for IVF treatment at the Ahalya Hospital last year.
She has surpassed the age of the previous oldest mum in the world, Daljinder Kaur, from Punjab, India, who gave birth at the age of 70 in 2016.

The center of medically assisted procreation Hospital of Nantes is the first center in France to benefit from renting an Embryoscope for conducting an international collaborative study. The Embryoscope consists of an incubator to receive the embryo; in the incubator a microscope is installed to continuously visualize the development of the embryo on the computer screen. Instead of leaving the embryo in the incubator for observation under the microscope as it is today, this very high-tech equipment meets all the conditions necessary for its cultivation by guaranteeing a stable environment. Embryoscope is developed by the Danish company Unisense Fertilitech and should improve the chances of success of IVF. The center of medically assisted procreation from Nantes hospital performs each year about 1,100 attempts at in vitro fertilization, which places it among the top ten French centers.(Photo by Alain DENANTES/Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images)A technician works on in vitro fertilization (IVF) for livestock in the genetic research and development center at the Blanca From The Pyrenees dairy farm, partnered with Ponderosa Holsteins, in Els Hostalets de Tost, Spain, on Thursday, June 4, 2015.
