A 60-year-old Israeli woman became a proud mother of healthy baby girl this morning in the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.
Doctors delivered the baby prematurely via cesarean section, as the woman suffered from a serious case of preeclampsia that put the baby girl and even the mother at risk.
The baby girl was born healthy at 2.2 kilograms. Both mother and child are still in the hospital, but their conditions are very good, Kaplan staffers said.
The oldest Israeli to ever give birth was a 65-year-old woman who delivered last year at Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba.
