Ranjit Hayer tried for decades to have a child, enduring multiple miscarriages, surgery, even the trauma of being robbed by a fertility doctor. Finally, after a successful IVF treatment, the Calgary woman gave birth to twins — at age 60.

She is believed to be among the oldest Canadian women to give birth.

Hayer's boys were delivered seven weeks prematurely by C-section at Calgary's Foothills Hospital on Tuesday morning, CBC Radio's The Current reported Thursday. The mother is recovering in intensive care, while the twins are in the neo-natal intensive care unit.

One of the babies is breathing with the help of special equipment, while the other boy is in the special care unit. Doctors say both are doing well. The twins will be kept in hospital until they reach a specified weight and can breathe on their own.

  • I can't decide if I think the doctors should be investigated for doing unethical procedures to these old women... not for the womans sake but for the children they produce....hmmmm what do yall think?

  • additionally, I don't have a problem with old women who carry children for their daughters who are unable to have children, having gone through infertility for years and years, I see that as a blessing but otherwise no... 60 is TOO old to have a baby and IMHO is just plain selfish on the part of the mother

  • She could have just adopted ...

    But on no, she fly's over to India since our government wouldnt PAY for her to get invetro'd, then comes back here to have it. Now my taxes are paying for her healthcare services. I have no problem with her choice, but WTF should we have to pay for it!! This is a prime example of why we need a two tiered system - so when you want to do something stupid as such - you do so at your cost - not the taxpayers ...

    She had enough money to galavant the world finding More..

  • at the age of 60, i don't think she would have to do much pushing, poor kids had probably been bungie jumping for the last few months and had to cling on for dear life when she went for a dump!
