68 years old woman finally gives birth to twins after 46 years of trying for children
A 68 years old woman in Nigeria has given birth to twins after almost 50 years of trying to have children – including three failed IVF attempts, the heart-touching and moving story of this couple
Margaret Adenuga and her 77-year-old husband Noah tried unsuccessfully to conceive for 46 years.
The couple also tried in-vitro fertilization three times without success. But when the woman became pregnant and gave birth to twins, their waiting and efforts were in vain.
After giving birth to a 68-year old, this woman in Nigeria became the oldest first-time mother in South Africa. Her husband, Noah, was very happy with the birth of the twins.
The couple not only suffᴇred mᴇntally but financially too, trying to conceive, they moved places and countries to look for a way to get pregnant but failᴇd.
Finally, the babies were born at Lagos University Teaching Hospital via Cᴇsarean. The fourth IVF attempt of this couple became successful and resulted in the birth of their twins.
Noah told a media channel, ‘I am a dreamer, and I was convinced this particular dream of ours will come to pass.’ Their babies were delivered by Dr. Adeyemi Okunowo.
The doctor also had a specialist team for this mission who monitored the pregnancy, as Margaret’s age was old and she was at high risk because of this pregnancy.

The pair first began trying for a baby after getting married in 1974.
