Husband of Indian womanwho gave birth to twins has stroke


The husband of a woman aged 73 who is thought to have become the world’s oldest mother after giving birth to twin girls in what doctor’s described as a ‘medical miracle’ suffered a stroke just a day after his daughters were born   Mangayamma Yaramati and her 82-year-old husband, Sitarama Rajarao, had described themselves as the ‘luckiest couple in the world’ after the delivery following IVF treatment Miss Yaramati had spent months at a hospital being monitored by a team of doctors and the twins were delivered on Thursday Mr Rajarao had said: ‘It is due to the grace of God and doctors that I have now become a proud father of two baby girls God has answered our prayers. This is the happiest time of my life.’Asked who would care for the children if anything were to happen to their parents, Mr Rajarao said: ‘Whatever should happen will happen It is all in the hands of God.’But just a day after his daughters were born, Mr Rajarao suffered a stroke and is currently being treated in hospital The birth has raised questions over whether doctors should be providing IVF treatment to elderly women in India, where the booming market is not strictly regulated The couple, who married in 1962, spent decades seeking both medical help and divine intervention after being unable to conceive Miss Yaramati said neighbours in her village in the state of Andhra Pradesh, in eastern India, would ‘look at me with accusing eyes’ She said she was seen as a cursed woman, but her husband – a farmer – stood by her ‘like a rock’ The couple had almost given up hope on becoming parents when a neighbour became pregnant using IVF at the age of 55 Miss Yaramati, who went through the menopause almost 25 years ago, consulted an IVF expert last year and treatment began The couple used an egg from a donor, fertilised with Mr Rajarao’s sperm and conceived in the first round of treatment Miss Yaramati was admitted to hospital in January, and the healthy twins were delivered by caesarean It is not known how the couple funded the treatment.Lead doctor at Ahalya Nursing Home in Guntur, Dr Sanakkayala Umasankar, said: ‘This is a medical miracle I don’t think she will have any major health issues. She cannot breast-feed the babies But no worries.’He said that the hospital had followed all laws amid criticism the decision to offer the couple IVF India’s booming fertility market has seen an estimated 2,000 unregulated clinics open in recent years Earlier this year, the authorities said they were considering an upper age limit for IVF Daljinder Kaur, from Amritsar, in Punjab, northern India, who was estimated to be 72 by doctors, gave birth to a boy in 2016 The oldest verified mother was previously Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara, from Spain, who gave birth to twins at the age of 66 in 2006 She was diagnosed with cancer within a year and died in 2009.Grandfather claims Lourdes holy water cured his cancer By Lewis PinnockA grandfather’s belief that his inoperable cancer was miraculously cured by holy water at Lourdes will be tested by doctors on Songs Of Praise Kazik Stepan, 71, visited the Roman Catholic sacred site in France as a teenager after he was diagnosed with a tumour on his spinal cord that left him unable to walk Doctors feared he would not even survive the pilgrimage but Mr Stepan, from Kent, claims that after bathing in holy water there he was able to walk for the first time in months He will revisit the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, in the foothills of the Pyrenees in south-western France, where his claim of a miracle will be assessed by the International Medical Committee of Lourdes, comprising 30 doctors  They must be certain that Mr Stepan was incurable before they can decide that he was ‘blessed with a permanent recovery’ Mr Stepan visited Lourdes in 1965 and believes he was granted the ‘present of life’ Water at the site flows from the Grotto of Massabielle and is claimed to have healing properties  Speculation about its qualities began in 1858 when the spring’s location is said to have been revealed by Our Lady of Lourdes – a title for the Virgin Mary of the Catholic faith – to Saint Bernadette Soubirous Around 100 people claim to be miraculously healed by the water of Lourdes every year, although the Catholic Church has only certified 70 miracles linked to the site If doctors confirm Mr Stepan’s claim, he will be the first Briton to have his cure verified They will announce their decision next month. The Songs Of Praise episode covering his return will air on September 15 on BBC1
