- The baby was born via c-section after just 30 weeks.
- The mother only has one working lung.
- Prior to this, 74-year-old (age to be verified) and also from India, gave birth to twins.
At 75 years old, Prabha Devi may be the world’s oldest mother after she gave birth just this month to a baby girl in Rajasthan, India. The infant was delivered via caesarian section and highly premature.
Devi gave birth to the girl, who weighed just 1 lb and 5 oz, at Kinker Hospital. She had to be delivered after just 30 weeks because Devi was physically weak to continue on with the pregnancy normally – she has only one working lung.
The infant was rushed straight into intensive care and was placed on life support.
The elderly mother already has an adopted child together with her husband, who is 80 years old. She still wanted to have her own, so she resorted to IVF treatments to get pregnant.
If proven that Devi is actually 75 years old, she will be nine years older than the current oldest mother in the world.
According to gynecologist and obstetrician Dr. Abhilasha Kinker, who delivered the baby, Devi came to the hospital four to five days before her delivery.
They discovered complications in her pregnancy, so they opted to perform a caesarian section immediately.
He added that Devi was old and ill and that they couldn’t take chances with the life of mother and child. They actually find it surprising that Devi was able to carry the child for more than six months.
As for the mother’s age, the doctor added: “She told us her age but showed no proof. She looked between 72 and 75. Her husband told us he is 80. It was surprising for me. Her age was a factor and then she was ill. She has one collapsed lung so it was a very challenging operation.”
Just a month ago, a 74-year-old woman named Erramatti Mangayamma, also from India, gave birth to twins via IVF.
She was claiming to be the world’s oldest mother. Her age wasn’t verified as well.
She hit menopause 30 years ago and never had children before the twins. She decided to try IVF after her neighbor conceived at 55 years old.
Older mothers have a higher chance of miscarriage, giving premature birth, or having a baby with low birth weight. According to the NHS, the changes in the woman’s reproductive system make it more difficult for women to transfer nutrients to her child.
