Woman, 50, gives birth to triplets
Tuesday 04 February 1997
Sue Green from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire gave birth to triplets Oliver, Aaron, and Samuel, on 8 November last year, nine weeks early. The multiple birth makes Mrs Green the second oldest mother of triplets in the world, after a 57-year-old Italian woman who gave birth in 1994.
Mrs Green and her husband Steve, 29, paid pounds 4,500 for private in vitro fertilisation treatment after the NHS said she was too old to be helped. She already has five children from a previous relationship of whom the oldest is 30.
She had three embryos implanted last April and within two weeks discovered she was expecting triplets. "I laughed my socks off - I was thrilled," she told the Sun.
"I may be 50 but I feel no different from when I had my first child 30 years ago. I am full of life and was determined to prove the doctors wrong." Glenda Cooper
