(MEDICALXPRESS) — During nearly four decades of marriage, Akosua Budu Amoako and her husband tried to have a child, without success. But last month, at age 59, Budu gave birth to her first child after fertility treatments.
The full-term 7-pound, 4-ounce boy was born June 15 at Bellevue Woman’s Center in Niskayuna, near Albany. He’s named after his father, Isaiah Somuah Anim.
“They’re doing super, very well,” Dr. Khushru Irani, who delivered the baby, told the Associated Press on Monday. The couple, he added, “are so happy about the whole thing.”
