Controversy erupted in Britain over a clinic's decision to perform IVF on a 59-year-old woman. Is it ethical or unethical to allow a lady in her seventies in a year to become a mother?
Meanwhile, most private clinics in the country do not perform this procedure for women over 50, and the "age of refusal" from the British Ministry of He alth is 39 years old. This causes many older English women who want to have children to be sent abroad to other more liberal clinics.
Susan has already become a mother, she gave birth to her first child at 57 years old. Susan went through all the necessary procedures for this in Moscow. But now she has a chance to undergo IVF in London, as the doctors of the London Women’s Clinic on Harley Street expressed their willingness to help the woman.
"I'm still full of life and he alth," says Susan. - And in my almost 60 I feel great. I don't understand why I shouldn't be helped to have a baby? I know that at my age people are already preparing for retirement, and not for taking their child to kindergarten. But if doctors help me, then I will become an example for other women.”
Mrs. Tollefsen doesn't need to think about retirement, she's been retired for a long time.
There is more than enough time to take care of a baby. Also, Susan has been a teacher for many years, so she knows how to raise children.
