64-year-old woman gives birth to twins

A 64-year-old woman from a small town in northern Spain gave birth Wednesday to twins after undergoing in vitro fertilization in the United States.

Her name has not been released.

It was a full-time pregnancy and the babies – a boy and a girl – are in good health condition, El Mundo reported.

The woman gave birth to another child, a daughter, six years ago by the same method and in the same hospital, but lost custody in 2014 after a family court found she had been neglectful, according to the paper.

Social services employees said they found the little girl was often isolated, appeared unclean and had a high rate of school absenteeism.

She is the second oldest woman to give birth in Spain, after Carmen Bousada, had twins at age 67. The woman died three years later.
