A 68 year old woman and her husband have welcomed a set of twins at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital after she conceived through IVF.
The first time mother of two was delivered of the babies through a Caesarean section operation at the hospital after the conception at another one.
She’s said to be the oldest confirmed case of a first time mother under the same circumstances in Nigeria and possibly Africa.
The mothers and babies are reportedly doing well as LUTH celebrates making history.
A doctor tweeted:

Pregnancy achieved artificially through IVF. Delivery through C/S. Both mother and babies are fine.
The oldest confirmed verifiable mother in Nigeria and in Africa.
A big Congratulations!
