A WOMAN who at 61 is expecting not a pension cheque but her first baby has stirred some controversy in Brazil over just when it might be too late to give birth.
She said she did not plan to tell her future daughter about her having used a donor egg to become pregnant.
It is not Brazil’s first late-in-life pregnancy. As recently as September 9, a 52-year-old woman whose husband is 88 became a first-time mother of twins.
Yet as of now, there is no age limit for artificial insemination; doctors are not supposed to proceed if there would be grave risks for the mother or child.
