It’s hard to believe that even women in their mid-twenties who gave birth two or three decades ago were considered “older mothers.”
This term was used to refer to women who chose to have their first child too late.
These days, mature mothers no longer surprise anyone. Women prefer to pursue a career first and then have children.
So, 35-40 years old is a very suitable age for the birth of the first child. But even this is not the limit.
After all, the possibilities of modern medicine allow experiencing the happiness of motherhood in an instant.
In theory, even a woman of respectable age who has already entered menopause can undergo in vitro fertilization.
This is exactly what happened to the heroine of our true story.
Spanish woman Maria del Carmen Busada de Lara was nearly 67 years old when she went to the clinic.
The woman was afraid of being rejected, so she lied about being 12 years younger.
Only after the procedure, Maria decided to reveal her true age. She gave birth to two healthy twins in due time.
The woman was full of optimism and believed she would live up to 101 years, just like her long-lived mother.
Maria often joked that she would still have time to see her grandchildren. Unfortunately, things turned out differently.
It was discovered that during pregnancy, the woman had an early stage of oncology, which was almost impossible to notice at that time.
However, hormonal therapy and the termination of pregnancy became the “stimulus” for the tumor’s development.
Two years after giving birth, Maria passed away, and no treatment helped her.
Today, the twins are being raised by Maria’s granddaughter, who they consider their mother.
Fortunately, the children were not left alone, as many relatives have been helping them.
