“The IVF and embryo transfer were done at an outside facility,” Prof Wasiu Adeyemo, the CMAC of LUTH said. “She was thereafter referred to LUTH at early gestation stage and subsequently managed till term.”

According to Prof. Adeyemo, this is the first time such feat will be recorded in Africa.

However, there is a record of a 74-year-old woman giving birth in southern India.

Mangayamma Yaramati became pregnant for the first after conceiving through in vitro fertilisation. She was also delivered of twins, both girls, through a Caesarean section.
