Some people called it wonders but we call it miracle, as a woman identified as Mrs Ajibola Otunbusin, becomes Africa’s oldest IVF mother.
She was said to have been delivered of a bouncing baby boy at the age of 67 years after 39 years of marriage, she has broken record as the oldest Nigerian and African woman to give birth through IVF (in-vitro fertilization).
Mrs Otunbusin told her story of how her efforts to have a baby took her to many specialist hospitals in Nigeria and India where she went through many procedures but all to no avail
“This might be hard to believe but I am 67 years old and I have been married for over 39 years. I have done several IVF both in India and in Nigeria that failed. At several points, I had said to myself: So I will die without a child of my own?’ But I never gave up on God. I held on to the belief that at the appointed time, God will remember me. And my husband kept encouraging me. “In 2018. I was directed to St. Ives Fertility center by the Holy Spirit. I started the procedure with joy and I ended it with joy from above.”
She also advised women who are encoutering problems with childbearing to never lose hope, she urged them to remain positive and try all possible medical processes but at the same time to look up to God for the fruit of the womb.
“I hereby encourage all women despite your age not to relent, God of Sarah will remember you too”, she said.
