Twins for world's oldest mum. 31/12/2006. ABC News Online
A 67-year-old Spanish woman became the world's oldest new mother when she gave birth to twins at a Barcelona hospital on Saturday.
Barcelona Hospital de Sant Pau says the woman gave birth by Caesarean section.
A hospital spokeswoman told AFP the unnamed woman and her offspring, whose sex was not revealed on grounds of patient confidentiality, were doing well.
We are already gearing up for more maternal complications with the aging maternal population but this is getting somewhat ridiculous!!

Don't discount the elderly - we get around alot better than the olden days.
I'm not discounting the elderly. I'm saying that for the children, they're not going to know they're great grandparents, there will be no cousins that are their age, how will the children feel when they go to school and others find out their mom had them at 67? I could care less when people have kids, as long as they think about their children's lives.
And steph, 45 isn't old. That's still young. :spin:
And I'm going to leave it at that. Age doesn't matter as long as you think about your children's lives.
