65 year old woman set to break the records and become world’s oldest mother of quadruplets


    German Annegret Raunigk,65 already has 13 children and schoolteacher set to become the oldest woman ever to give birth to quadruplets. Her pregnancy was a result of artificial insemination using both donated sperm and eggs. Ms Raunigk, who is in the 21st
    week of her pregnancy, said she was ‘shocked’ when an ultrasound scan
    showed she was carrying quadruplets. Her gynaecologist initially
    mentioned the
    possibility of  abortion.

    But the English and Russian teacher, who is due to retire this year,
    said she decided to have the babies as she was ‘still quite fit’ and
    capable of looking after them. She added: ‘I don’t think I will have
    any problems.’

     Ms Raunigk, from Berlin, previously made headlines in Germany when she
    had her daughter Leila at the age of 55. Her 13 children – the oldest of
    whom is 44 – are by five different fathers.

    She defended her decisions to get pregnant later in life, saying: ‘I think one needs to decide for oneself and not listen too much to the opinions of others.’
