HYDERABAD - Aug. 6, 2002. A 52-year-old woman of the city has given birth to a bonny baby four years after her menopause through "in-vitro fertilisation''(IVF).

Providing details of the case to the press here on Tuesday, Kiran D. Sekher, Executive Director, Kiran Infertility Centre, said that this might be the oldest mother of a "test-tube baby'' in the city.

Explaining the procedure, Dr. Sekher said that three oocytes (female ova) donated by a relative of the woman were impregnated in the test tube from sperm taken from the husband, who is himself 63 years old. Four days later these were planted inside the uterus of the woman who had undergone hormone therapy to prepare the uterus lining to receive the embryos.

Dr. Sekher said that the entire pregnancy went without a hitch and a male baby of 2.8 kg was born through caesarean section at a city hospital on June 13. The mother and baby are doing fine and there have been no post-natal complications, Dr. Sekher informed.

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.
