70-year-old turns mother: Too old or 'her choice'?

Days after a 70-year-old woman in Amritsar gave birth, now a 67-year-old woman in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh has become a mother after being married for nearly half a century. In vitro fertilisation or IVF is increasingly helping the aged defy odds to become first-time parents. But there are concerns over what it could mean for the child -- will older parents be able to provide the same care for them as younger ones? How will it affect the mother's health? Should age be a barrier for motherhood or is it 'her choice'?
