印度南部安得拉邦的一名  73  岁妇女经体外授精怀孕,生下了一对双胞胎女孩。医生在  2019  年  月  日接生了这对双胞胎。

The woman and her husband Sitarama Rajarao, who's in his 80s, first tried to have a baby nearly 60 years ago, but were unable to conceive.

双胞胎的母亲和她 80 多岁的丈夫,希塔拉玛·拉贾罗,早在将近 60 年前就尝试要孩子,但一直未能怀孕。

IVF treatment using a donor eggfertilised by Mr Rajarao’s sperm worked at the first attempt, resulting in two baby girls who were delivered by Caesarean section. The woman's mother, who's around 100 years old, said the whole family would look after the children.

医生通过体外授精的治疗方法,用拉贾罗的精子受精了一个捐赠的卵子,曼加亚玛·亚拉玛蒂第一个周期就成功怀孕,最终通过剖腹产生下了一对双胞胎女孩。双胞胎女孩的外祖母约 100 岁,她说全家人都会来照看孩子。
