A 70-year-old Indian woman identified as Daljinder Kaur has given birth to her first baby.
Overjoyed with this possibility, the visibly aged woman says she is not too old to be a ‘mother’ to her baby. She says the coming of her baby boy has completed her joy in this world.
“God heard our prayers. My life feels complete now. I am looking after the baby all by myself, I feel so full of energy. My husband is also very caring and helps me as much as he can.”
Daljinder Kaur has been married to her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, for 46 years. After 2 years of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment the woman surprised the world by taking in and giving birth; irrespective of her age and all the health complications that comes with it.
“I first tried to avoid the case because she looked very frail. Then we made her undergo all the tests and once all the results were okay we went ahead”– Anurag Bishnoi, Fertility Clinic, Haryana.
Just like in some parts of Africa, this couple have no birth certificates. Report says that Daljinder’s age is not exactly accurate. The health clinic that conducted the IVF treatment after some considerations and observations arrived at the 70 years range for the woman.
The old Indian couple were not expecting any form of miracle in their case till they came across the IVF advert. Logically, most people their age will not give the treatment a thought but Daljinder Kaur and her spouse did anyway. They were willing to give it a try.

According to the National Fertility and Test Tube center, the baby was born “healthy and hearty”. As at the day of delivery, April 19, the baby weighed 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds). This will be the second of its kind in India. In 2008, a 72-year old woman also had a child via IVF.
In reply to the argument that bothers on the future welfare of the child, Daljinder Kaur’s spouse, Mohinder says this:
“People say what will happen to the child once we die. But I have full faith in God. God is omnipotent and omnipresent, he will take care of everything.”
