Storyline


A 67-year-old woman gave birth to a baby girl in east China's Shandong Province on Friday, possibly making the woman and her husband, 68, the oldest couple in the country known to have a naturally conceived baby.

The woman had the child, with a birth weight of 2.56 kilograms, by caesarean section around 09:12 local time at the Maternity and Child Health Hospital of the province's Zaozhuang City.

When the woman surnamed Tian went to the hospital for routine checkup in May, doctors found her to have a medical history of cerebral infarction, high blood pressure and diabetes, which made her pregnancy highly risky.

"We designed special therapeutic care and contingency plans, pulled together a team consisting of doctors from the internal medicine, surgical, obstetrics, nutritional and other departments to provide round-the-clock monitoring of the pregnant woman," said Liu Chengwen, a chief physician with the hospital.

Prior to the birth, Tian suffered from severe preeclampsia, heart failure, and abnormal liver and kidney function, so doctors decided to give her a caesarean section, a relatively safer method for her age.

"When we examined the woman's reproductive system during her labor, we found that she, unlike most other women in their 60s who have withered ovaries, has ovaries similar to that of women in their 40s. That's probably one of the reasons she was able to conceive naturally," said Liu.

Tian's baby girl has been sent to the premature infants room for further care and close monitoring of physiological indexes.
