In the Indian city of Kota, Rajasthan, 75-year old Prabha Devi (Prabha Devi) gave birth to a girl using in vitro fertilization (IVF). This is reported by The Sun.
The child was born during the seventh month of pregnancy (30th week) on Saturday, October 12th. The weight of the newborn was less than 700 grams. Doctors performed a forced cesarean section because Devi was diagnosed with health problems.
“She is in old age, she is also sick, we could not risk the lives of the mother and her child. For six months she safely carried the fetus. This is a significant period for her age, said obstetrician Abhilasha Kinker, who performed the birth. “If we hadn’t done a cesarean, the girl could have died in the womb.”
The baby was immediately connected to a ventilator. As of October 15, the child’s health condition has stabilized. The little patient is under the constant supervision of doctors.“She is in the neonatal intensive care unit. We are constantly following her. The mother will be able to feed her only when the child gets stronger and gains weight, ”the obstetrician explained.
According to Abhilash, doctors will discharge the newborn from the hospital when she recovers to one and a half kilograms. He also noted that neither Devi nor her 80-year-old husband has documented their age. “She looks to be 75 years old,” says the doctor. Her age made pregnancy very difficult, and then she got sick. The woman has lung problems.
