Indian Woman Becomes Oldest Woman to Give Birth at Age 70

In a world where science has made nearly anything possible, I shouldn't be surprised to learn about a 70–year–old woman who gave birth to twins in India this past weekend.
No proof of her age exists but there is no doubt that Omkari Panwar is older than most new mothers. Omkari and her husband, Charam Singh, are already parents to two daughters and five grandchildren, but wanted to have a son to maintain their family property.

IVF helped the couple accomplish their dreams by giving them twins — one boy and one girl. The babies were born via Cesarean section, weighing two pounds each.

What are your thoughts on the couples decision to have a child so late in life?
