- A 67-year-old retired doctor simply identified as Tian, has reportedly given birth to a baby girl with her 68-year-old husband
- Tian is said to have given birth to her daughter after getting pregnant ‘naturally’
- The couple may be the oldest to have conceived naturally in China
Many couples desire to conceive their own kids but not all of them are always lucky despite their vibrancy and youth.
Well, a 67-year-old retired doctor recently gave birth, despite her old age, as she conceived naturally with her 68-year-old husband.
The woman simply identified as Tian gave birth to her little daughter at the same hospital she retired from.
A spokesperson also explained to CCTV that the new mother had used Chinese fertility treatments throughout the process and her womb appeared to be that of a 40-year-old woman. This was noticed during the caesarean section.
“When we examined the woman’s reproductive system during her labor, we found that she, unlike most other women in their 60s who have withered ovaries, has ovaries similar to that of women in their 40s, that’s probably one of the reasons she was able to conceive naturally,” the physician in charge of the delivery, Liu Wencheng, told CCTV.
The new baby was then named Tianci which means gift from heaven, despite Tian’s older children kicking against the birth. According to CNN, the retired doctor’s older daughter had promised to sever all ties with her parents if they delivered a new child.
Tian's pregnancy, however, did not run smoothly all the way as the 67-year-old developed heart failure, preeclampsia and abnormal kidney and liver function.
Tianci’s birth might have made Tian and her husband the oldest couple to conceive naturally in China seeing as the last woman to achieve the feat was 64.
Congrats to the couple.
