The doctor said that the fetus Raunigk was carrying was not alone but twins 4. Even Raunigk refused if one of the fetuses was aborted. This is reasonable, at an increasingly advanced age, his body is still fit to be able to take care of the 4 twins who are in his womb.
Raunigk was shocked when an ultrasound was found to contain 4 twins at once. The woman, who had caused a media stir in Germany, gave birth to her youngest daughter at the age of 55. Even Raunigk told local media that he would never worry about having a teenager in the next few years. (Also read: The sign is about to give birth)
Even when observing Raunigk’s children, there were 13 children, of whom the oldest was 44 years old. This child is the fruit of love from Raunigk’s previous 5 marriages. Even at his age, Raunigk already has seven grandchildren.
Raunigk said whatever he did was his own decision without the need to listen to too many other people’s opinions. Currently, the title of the oldest woman who gave birth to four twins is held by a 55-year-old woman named Merryl Fudel. Meanwhile, for women from India, Omkari Panwar was declared a woman who had given birth when she was 70 years old.
Even though as we all know that women who are pregnant over the age of 35 have a very big health risk. Even have the risk of giving birth to Down’s syndrome children. Women who are pregnant at the age of 30 will have Down’s syndrome 1: 900 while for women who are pregnant at the age of 35, the chance for Down’s syndrome is 1: 300.
In addition, what we know with women who are over 35 years of age also has a high risk of developing diabetes and diseases that accompany pregnancy, including placental abruption, pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes and placenta previa. Even some pregnancy complications that will interfere with the health of the fetus and pregnant women.
However, the reason is that it is not recommended for mothers to decide to become pregnant at an age that is no longer young, the pregnancy limit is for women under 30 years of age. This is considering the age of women who are getting older will cause problems for women during pregnancy. Health conditions that are not supportive and begin to experience health problems will interfere with pregnancy. It is even feared that the labor process that will take place will create a greater risk for pregnant women over the age of 30.
Some other things to consider are that multiple pregnancies often cause pregnancy complaints and require extra care. Moreover, if it occurs in women over 35 years, it is feared that it will continue to cause problems that will disturb both of them, both for pregnant women or for babies who are being conceived. Pregnancy experienced by the mother will give more risk of pregnancy to the mother and the fetus than the mother who contains no twins.
