A British woman gave birth to a son at age 59 without the benefit of in vitro fertilization. That may make her the world's oldest "natural" mother.
Dawn Brooke had a healthy boy without any fertility treatment only 12 months before she became eligible for her old age pension, her family said.
Her husband, former company director Raymond Brooke, said the couple had kept the 1997 birth private for a decade to let their son grow up in peace. [Link]
