Information on how long she waited for the bundle of joy remains shady as at the time of publishing this piece.
Similarly, in April this year, another Nigerian woman gave birth to twins after attempting four Invitro Fertilisation (IVF) process at the age of 68.
Margaret Adenuga was said to have gone through three previous IVF procedures before finally having twins.
The husband, Noah Adenuga (77) disclosed they married in 1974 and had been waiting endlessly to have a child of their own.
The couple never gave up on their dream for a child according to Adenuga. “I am a dreamer, and I was convinced this particular dream of ours will come to pass.”
The babies were delivered via caesarian section at 37 weeks at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH).
Dr. Adeyemi Okunowo, who delivered the babies said a specialit team assembled at the hospital to monitor the pregnancy because of Margaret’s age.
Okunowo said: “As an elderly woman and a first-time mother, it was a high-risk pregnancy and also because she was going to have twins but we were able to manage her pregnancy to term”.
