Mother, 62, Gives Birth to Twins After IVF Treatment
|A Bulgarian mom is is believed to be only the second ever successful case of IVF resulting in a mother over 60 after she welcomed a set of prematurely born twins.|
After wanting a family for years, Psychiatrist Krasimira Dimitrova sought treatment and was initially impregnated with triplets but medics decided to remove one of the embryos.
‘Age was not an obstacle for me. I so much wanted to have children. I would not like to look too much in the future. I hope that the babies will be well.’
The 62-year-old mom is not alone in her quest to be a mom very late in life:
I'm personally not a fan of this new trend. It's not fair to the kids to have a parent that is in retirement AND at best, they will only get maybe a quarter of their life with them.
