A grandmother in Germany gave birth to quadruplets at a Berlin hospital last week, May 19, and is now the oldest woman ever to accomplish this. Before giving birth to these latest four children, she had 13 kids. You heard that right? THIRTEEN. At 65 years of age, Annegret Raunigk is a single mom and also a grandmother of seven. The newborns were three boys and one girl, whose names are names are Neeta, Dries, Bence and Fjonn. And they were delivered by C-section. According to reports, the babies were delivered prematurely, at just under 26 six weeks and are therefore in incubators still.
The report has apparently sparked a public debate in Germany about the rights of her to do so, and the merits, advantages, and disadvantages of being an older mom. Raunigk used intro fertilization (IVF) to get pregnant, which were donated eggs that had to go through the fertilization process first. Raunigk aroused the public interest when she had her daughter Leila almost ten years ago.While a lot of people question the ethical decision to have children so late in life, Raunigk reportedly enjoys the experience. And even after attempts to persuade her to have an abortion by doctors, she refused.
What do you think? Should she be having kids so late in life?
