Canadian gives birth to twins at age 60

A 60-YEAR-OLD woman in western Canada has given birth to twins after going to India for fertility treatments, the new mother told a Canadian broadcaster on Thursday.

The Alberta Health Services issued a news release on Thursday saying the mother and two infants are in good condition.

First-time mother Ranjit Hayer spoke to a reporter from her hospital bed on Thursday morning. Hayer said she was determined to be a mother, and had tried for decades to conceive naturally and with medical intervention. One effort in India failed when she and her husband paid a doctor for in vitro fertilization, but he absconded with their money.

They returned to Canada and again saved for years, until they had enough money to go back to India and try again with donor eggs.

Media reports said two boys were delivered seven weeks prematurely by cesarean section at Calgary's Foothills Hospital on Tuesday.
