World's oldest mother Rajo Devi celebrated her child's first birthday on Friday in Haryana's Jind town.
Rajo Devi had hit the headlines last year, when she gave birth to a healthy baby girl through in-vitro fertility (IVF) treatment at a private fertility center in Hissar district.
"Life was miserable before the birth of child (Naveen). We read an advertisement on the technology (IVF) in a newspaper and decided to take its help. I took prescribed medicine for the birth of the baby," said Rajo.
The doctors who had helped the elderly couple attain the joy of parenthood said that the advancement in technology has helped many childless couples fulfill their dream of having a child.
"The technology helps the creation of embryo outside the body and it is transferred into the body at appropriate time. This technology has been revolutionized in last few years due to various developments. As a result success rate has increased. Earlier, the success rate was 30 per cent, now it is 50 per cent," said Anurag Bishnoi, a doctor.
Any elderly woman, who has her uterus intact, regardless of age, can take recourse to IVF treatment.
