According to Times of India, Gopichand-Chandravati couple are residents of Nuharia village in Jhunjhunu, Rajasthan. Married almost 54 years ago today. Despite many attempts, it was not possible for the couple to conceive a child. He wandered from temple to temple hoping to get a child. Various types of treatment in the hospital were not excluded.
The Gopi-Chandravati couple even tried IVF twice. But failed twice. But did not give up hope. They took the help of IVF procedure for the third time a year and a half ago. And this time a rare event happened. Chandravati got pregnant 9 months ago. Although the doctors were concerned about the whole matter. One of the reasons is the age of the mother. However, 70-year-old Chandravati did not disappoint the doctors this time.

What is the IVF method?
The IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) method was earlier known as the ‘test tube baby’ method. For couples who are unable to conceive naturally or who are unable to conceive after trying for a long time, the IVF method is one of the hopes of the modern medical system.
For couples who cannot conceive naturally, in this method, eggs and sperm are collected and fertilized in a special laboratory dish, and then the embryo is placed in the uterus.
