Woman Pushing 60 Gives Birth to Preemie Twins in Mexico

MEXICO CITY – A 58-year-old woman who underwent fertility treatments has given birth to preemie twins in the northwestern state of Sinaloa, the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) said.

The babies – a boy and a girl – were born at 33 weeks and are in good condition.

The twins are expected to spend at least three weeks in the hospital receiving specialized treatment for several medical conditions, including low birth weight.

The girl weighed 1.97 kilos (4.33 pounds) and the boy 1.86 kilos (just under 4.1 pounds) at birth, doctors said.

The unidentified mother spent a month under observation by doctors until she gave birth by C-section, the IMSS said.

A team of doctors monitored the twins’ birth at Regional General Hospital No. 1 in Culiacan, the capital of Sinaloa.

Doctors took special measures to ensure the survival of both the mother and the babies, Dr. Elka Araujo Sanchez said.
