 68-YEAR OLD FIRST TIME MOTHER GIVES BIRTH TO TWINS

Great news amidst the COVID19 Pandemic:

A 68-year-old Nigerian woman successfully delivered twins on her first pregnancy, the Lagos University Teaching hospital, LUTH, reported over the weekend.

The hospital celebrated a feat it said was the first in the country and across Africa. The mother delivered the babies – a boy and a girl – via elective Caesarean section, a LUTH statement added.

The mother was carrying a pregnancy for the first time having undergone an In Vitro Fertilization, IVF, and embryo transfer at an outside facility.

The parents took pictures with their children in a photo released by the hospital. Most people responding to the development which the hospital referred to as “Great News amid the COVID-19 pandemic” congratulated the parents and the medics for their efforts.
