66-Year-Old Woman Gives Birth To Triplets!

Hisar, India (CNN) -- Barely able to sit up due to intense pain, first-time mother Bhateri Devi steadies herself with the help of a family member. She has had a Cesarean section, an experience many women have endured.

But Devi is different: She gave birth to triplets in May this year and is 66 years old. It was her very first delivery.

"I wanted to have a family," she said. "Before I didn't have any children, even at this age, that's why I gave birth to these children."

"So what if she's old?" her husband Deva Singh chimes in. He's 70.

The couple tried for decades but had been unable to conceive until they discovered a fertility clinic that would treat Devi. The clinic was near their village in the Indian state of Haryana.

Doctor Bishnoi Anurag has become known in the area for using fertility treatments on older patients.

"Why not?" he asked. "We have been doing it for many years." He said he's helped more than 100 patients above 50 years old conceive and have babies without a single mortality or maternal death.

The science behind it is seemingly simple and has been around for more than 20 years. Bhateri Devi is post-menopausal and has no more eggs. In her case Dr. Bishnoi says he fertilized a young woman's egg with sperm from Devi's husband in a Petri dish and then injected the fetus into his 66-year-old patient's uterus.
