Oldest mother ever – level 2

Oldest mother ever – level 2

24-05-2016 07:00

An Indian couple in their 70’s came to a doctor for treatment because the woman was not able to get pregnant. The doctor was not sure about this, but tests showed that she was fit and healthy. The risks were not higher than the risks of a middle-aged woman.

After 3 years of fertility treatment, the woman gave birth. As she is in her 70’s she is one of the oldest mothers to ever give birth. Her exact age is not known, however, because she does not have a birth certificate, which is normal in India.

The new mother says that no one from the family taunted her for having a child.

Difficult words: fertility (the ability to have a baby), treatment (medical care), taunt (to say something bad).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
