Swiss Woman, 66, Has Twins After IVF Treatment In Ukraine

A 66-year-old woman in Switzerland has given birth to twins after receiving in vitro fertilization (IVF) in Ukraine.

The Swiss tabloid "Le Matin" confirmed on March 5 that the woman, a Protestant pastor living in a remote village in the eastern Swiss canton of Graubuenden, delivered two baby boys by Cesarean section two weeks ago.

The unmarried woman, whose identity has not been revealed, has become the oldest woman to give birth in Switzerland, breaking the previous record held by a woman who delivered a baby girl at the age of 64.

IVF, in which egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the mother's body, is permitted in Switzerland only if parents are considered young enough to raise their children to maturity.

Ukraine provides IVF treatment regardless of age.

A person that old shouldn't be allow to get IVF treatment, should be illegal and the doctor should be sued. Thats unethical.

People want to compete with each other:
Who is the greatest lift
Who will run faster
Who is the greatest drinker of russian vodka
same story here-
I am seventy, and I can give birth to baby
I am eighty, and I can give birth to twins...technologies are being developed...

At the same time it seems, that RL should write more about the maniac who cry, about terrorist who supplies weapons to al-Assad,about Nazi who recognized Abkhazian racists..

We would like to congratulate our most aged patient, who gave birth to healthy twins in her 66 in Switzerland. BioTexCom Clinic in Kiev gave her an Egg Donation Package with guarantee. The woman induced us to surrogacy, but because she was single, we had no right to give her the surrogacy program; therefore we assign her with an Egg Donation Program, which provides a 100% result. The method of differential stem cells was applied for the first time

(, thanks to this the twins Michael and Joshua were born.
