The Miracle of Medicine – Woman on the Verge of Her Eighth Decade Gave Birth

Margaret Adenuga, 68, from Nigeria successfully gave birth to twins, making her possibly the oldest woman to give birth in Africa. She and her Husband Noah, 77, have been trying for a child for 50 years, even unsuccessfully attempting In-Vitro Fertilization three times.

The pair have traveled far and wide and tried many times to conceive but until recently their attempts have been futile. Trying for so many years would make most people give up, but Noah stated that he was a dreamer who always knew this particular dream of his would come true.

The twins were born healthy at the Lagos Hospital, despite specialists’ concerns over the high-risk pregnancy due to Margaret’s age. The pregnancy was monitored by a specially assigned team.
