A 66–year–old woman has become the oldest known mother of triplets after she gave birth to two boys and a girl here on May 29, 44 years after her marriage to Deva Singh (64). “Bhateri Devi of Satrod Village in Hisar district conceived with in–vitro fertilisation (IVF) technique at National Fertility Centre here,” Dr Anurag Bishnoi, who was the treating IVF specialist, said. Bhateri conceived in her third attempt and became a mother for the first time. “For the first two attempts, only two embryos were transferred in each cycle. But in the third attempt, three embryos were transferred in her uterus, resulting in the birth of three children by Caesarean section,” Bishnoi said. Bhateri was born on May 21, 1944, in Madina village of Rohtak, as confirmed by the birth certificate issued by Rohtak district hospital, he said. “As the proof of her age is well–documented, she becomes the most aged female of the world to give birth to triplets,” he said. Her husband Deva Singh said he married twice after marrying Bhateri as she was unable to produce children. But he had no children from the other two wives either. “It is the eldest wife who has made me proud and given me a heir. Old is gold,” Deva Singh said with a smile.
