63-year-old woman gives birth in Dubai

A Sri Lankan woman has given birth to a healthy baby girl at the age of 63 in Dubai, making her a third time-mum after a year-long IVF treatment.

The 63-year-old miracle mum, however, was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and placenta previa, and was rushed in for an emergency C-section at Thumbay Hospital in her 36th week.

“Despite the complications in the case, the hospital staff extended special care and provided round-the clock services to make it a smooth delivery and post-natal care. The baby weighed 2.3-kilogram (5.1-pound) at birth and is now doing perfectly well.”
