Well, if youâ€™re one of those married ladies who is about to hit her thirties, you will probably relate to what Iâ€™m going to tell you now.
If you have been subjected to subdued giggles and persistent questions about delivering the â€˜good newsâ€™, you can probably use this article as your weapon of choice.
Fine, let me get down to business. There will be many-a-times when you will be told that this is â€˜THEâ€™ age to have babies. Maybe it is. But this isnâ€™t the only time you have. Contrary to popular belief that as soon as a woman is on the uneasy side of her 20s, her biological clock starts ticking away, here is something that will make you jump like a spring.
Age is just a number, honestly. Iâ€™m not trying to say that itâ€™ll be as easy as when youâ€™re younger, but conceiving and delivering a baby isnâ€™t impossible, even when you grow older. For instance, in Mumbai, 60-year-old Punji Patel delivered a 3.9-kilo baby boy, the only catch being her conception was through IVF or in-vitro fertilization. Punji Patel, isnâ€™t one rare case though.
There are several women who have become mothers post the age of 60. In February this year, it was double bonanza for a 60-year-old Austrian woman, who gave birth to not one, but two healthy kids. Yes, she had twins.
Women worldwide are now experiencing motherhood at a late stage of their lives, thanks to IVF, that has given a ray of hope to several couples unable to conceive earlier. In one case, even a 92-year-old woman gave birth to a healthy kid.Â Â
