    At 67, a woman becomes "the oldest young mother" in China

    At 67, a woman becomes "the oldest young mother" in China

    The other world record is held by a Spanish woman who, with the help of in vitro fertilization, gave birth to twins in 2006 when she was about to turn 67 years old. 


    There is no age to have a child. At least that's what this 67-year-old grandmother, who gave birth to a little girl in eastern China, says to be the oldest Chinese woman to give birth to a child in the aftermath of a natural pregnancy.

    The woman, named Tian, ​​gave birth by caesarean section Friday in Shandong Province, local media reported. Maternity hospital in Zaozhuang City confirmed that a 67-year-old woman gave birth in her home but could not comment on the conditions of conception, as Ms. Tian made contact with the hospital while she was pregnant . "The child is a gift from heaven for both of us," said Ms. Tian's 68-year-old husband at the guancha.cn news site. According to the English-language daily Global Times, the baby is also called "Tianci", that is to say "Gift of Heaven" in Chinese.

    The world record held by a Spanish woman

    If it is confirmed that Ms. Tian's pregnancy was natural, it would be by far a world record. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the oldest woman to give birth to a naturally conceived child is a Briton who gave birth in 1997 when she was 59 years old. With the help of in vitro fertilization, the world record is held by Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara of Spain, who gave birth to twins in 2006 when she was about to turn 67 years old. She died of cancer two years later.

    The local daily Jinan Times reports that Ms. Tian was already the mother of two children, including a son born in 1977, just before the single child policy came into force to curb China's population explosion. This policy has recently been relaxed to allow all couples to have two children. But the news of Tianci's birth was criticized on the Weibo social network. "These parents are selfish," wrote one user. "At their age, they will not be able to look after a child and the burden will fall on their older children. Others wondered if the couple would be penalized for breaking the limit of two children per family.
