Oldest Mother: An Indian Woman Made History By Giving Birth At Age 70

Oldest Mother

by Peter Barnes

Daljinder Kaur became the oldest mother at age 70 by giving birth to a baby they called Arman, which is Hindi for “hope.” After over 50 years of marriage, Kaur and her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, welcomed their first child.

The mother of a child who was born at the age of 70 asserted that she was not over childbearing age and went on to say that her life was now complete.

Following two years of IVF therapy at a fertility clinic in the northern state of Haryana with her 79-year-old husband, Daljinder Kaur, gave birth to a boy last month.

Kaur claimed that despite being married for 46 years, the pair had virtually given up on ever having children.

“We prayed, and God heard us.” Now I feel whole in my life. I am taking care of the infant by myself since I am so energized. My spouse is really considerate and tries to support me as much as he can, “from Amritsar,” Kaur remarked.

We decided to attempt IVF after seeing the advertisement because I desperately wanted to have a child of my own, she added.

In India, where many people lack birth certificates, Kaur estimated her age to be around 70, but the clinic stated in a statement that she was actually 72.

After weighing only two kilograms (4.4 pounds) at birth on April 19, the baby, who was created using the couple’s own egg and sperm, is now “healthy and hearty,” according to the National Fertility and Test Tube Center.

Mohinder Singh Gill, the farmer who runs a farm outside of Amritsar, claimed he was unconcerned about Kaur and her age and that God would look after their son, whom they named Armaan.

When we pass away, people ask what will happen to the child. But I firmly believe in God. Due to God’s omnipotence and presence, everything will be taken care of, “said he.

The fertility clinic’s director, Anurag Bishnoi, admitted he was initially hesitant to proceed with in vitro fertilization (IVF), but testing revealed Kaur was capable of carrying the embryo.

The Hindustan Times quoted Dr. Anurag Bishnoi, an embryologist and the head of the fertility clinic, as saying, “The woman first came to me alone in 2013, after reading about us in a paper.” In 2013, we got right to work, but the first attempt—which is typical—failed. A second effort was undertaken after six months, but that one also failed. She underwent each test after that, and when the results were all clear, we moved forward, “explained the doctor.”

“Everyone urged me to adopt a child, but I had no desire to do so. I believed in the Almighty and knew I would have a kid one day. “Kaur was cited by The Times of India.

Arman, the baby boy, is said to be in good health.

After receiving therapy at the same institution in 2006, Rajo Devi, an additional Indian woman, gave birth to a daughter at the age of 70. Kaur would be the oldest woman ever to give birth to a child if she is indeed 72, as the facility claims.
