The woman dared to give birth at the age of 67, for which she was listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
Today, late motherhood will not surprise anyone. On the playground, you can often meet a 40-year-old mother with a small child.
But there are cases when, with the help of IVF, a woman gives birth after fifty or even after 60 years.
Of course, in this case, the expectant mother is at great risk. Because health problems begin and it is not known how many years she is destined for.
The leadership of some countries plans at the legislative level to limit the age of a woman when she can become pregnant.
In the meantime, these laws have not been adopted, women manage to give birth quite late. There are few such examples. For example, Maria del Carmen Busada de Lara from Spain. The woman dared to give birth at the age of 67, for which she was listed in the Guinness Book of Records. And she carried twins. In 2006, she gave birth to two boys, whom she named Pau and Christian. Despite the low weight (1600 g) and the solid age of the mother, the babies were born completely healthy.
Spaniard got pregnant with IVF. So that she could have the procedure, she reduced her age by 12 years. In addition, the woman was not married, and when asked by doctors, she evasively answered that it was her business whether to marry or not. For Maria, this was the first pregnancy.
The Spaniard’s mother lived a long life and died at the age when she was already over 100 years old. Therefore, Maria decided that she would live for many more years and decided to have children so late.
But fate had its own way. The Spaniard got cancer and when the kids were 3 years old, she died. The boys were adopted by Maria’s younger sister, who has no children of her own.
The sister promised the dying woman that she would not hide the truth from the boys and would tell who their real mother was. And how she risked her health to give them life.
