Tassy woman celebrates first baby at 63

At 63 most of us are thinking about retiring in a couple of years and pondering what we’ll spend our time doing.  But that’s not the case for a  woman from Tasmania, who has become a first time mum.

The woman who featured in a story on Channel Seven is the oldest to give birth in Australia.

It’s believed the unidentified woman gave birth by caesarean section at Melbourne’s Frances Perry House private hospital on Monday.


The baby was born early but mum and bub are reported to be doing well.

The 63-year-old and her 78-year-old partner conceived through IVF overseas, using a donor embryo, according to the report.

A Gold Cost woman who gave birth to her first child at 50 in 2011 is believed to be the oldest Australian to give birth to a naturally-conceived child.
