71-year-old woman reportedly pregnant, set to become world's oldest mother

She says the baby will be delivered by caesarean.

She went to a private clinic for an ultrasound which revealed that she was going to become a mother for the ninth time.

The 71-year-old woman admits that doctors at the clinic were even more surprised than she was and claims to have had a total of 10 ultrasounds in the last three months, just to be sure.

Ultrasound

“My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy. Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it,” the woman told debate “They told me it is a girl. Look, you can see her little face.”

Although her other children aren’t too happy about the news that they will soon have another sister and many people have advised her to terminate the pregnancy due to her advanced age, Maria de la Luz claims that she is excited about her pregnancy.

Caesarean

She has an appointment scheduled with a gynecologist on July 18, and expects that, due to her age, the baby will be delivered by caesarean.

As you can expect, the news of a 71-year-old woman being pregnant has caused some raised eyebrows both within the medical community and the general public.

Many doctors believe the woman’s story is simply made up, because conceiving a baby at that age is virtually impossible, and even her neighbors aren’t convinced she is telling the truth.
