To her own narrative, she explained that she started to have a suspicion three months ago. She said:
“My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy. Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it.”
Even though her children were not excited about her pregnancy announcement, Maria de la Luz is still determined to continue. In fact, she has an appointment with a gynecologist this coming July 18.
As for now, the oldest known verified mother to give birth in the world is Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara. At the age of 66, she successfully gave birth via cesarean section (CF) to male twins — Christian and Pau — in December 2006.
