Spanish woman (64) gives birth to twins by C-section

By Gerard Couzens

A 64-year-old woman has given birth to twins at a hospital in Spain. The new mother fell pregnant after returning to Spain following successful IVF treatment in the United States. The babies were delivered by C-section at the Recoletas Hospital in the northern city of Burgos.

The babies, a boy and a girl, are said to be in a "perfect state of health". The girl weighed 4lbs 8oz and the boy 5lbs 3oz.

The hospital said there were no problems with the birth.

"The mother and her twins, a boy and a girl, will remain in the hospital for four or five days which is normal after a Caesarean," it said.

The woman has not been named - and identified only by her initials M.I.A - but is said to come from the small town of Palacios de la Sierra in northern Spain.

The world's oldest documented mother is Daljinder Kaur from India, who gave birth in 2015 at the age of 70 after two years of IVF treatment.

Baby Armaan was born weighing 4.4lbs.
