A 51-year-old Chinese woman in southwest China's Chongqing Municipality gave birth to a test tube female baby, weighing three kilograms, Thursday afternoon.

Both the mother and daughter are in good condition, according to doctors in the hospital.

The mother is one of the oldest people to receive a test tube pregnancy and successfully giving birth to a baby in China.

The mother once had a daughter who died in a traffic accident when she was 18 years old after she had passed the entrance examination of the university.

The broken-hearted mother was longing for another child, and asked help from the birth research institute of the Chongqing Women and Children Health Care Hospital.

Doctors embedded four embryos into the woman who had entered menopause for one year, and the mother was placed in intensive care to ensure a healthy birth.

The Chongqing Women and Children Health Care Hospital was one of the three hospitals that have over 100 successful test tube baby operations in China.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
