Last year, the couple reached out to IVF expert Dr Sanakkayala Umasankar in Guntur and decided to undergo IVF treatment. Since the woman had crossed her menopause age, minor surgery was performed, in which a uterus was arranged from another woman. Medical experts closely monitored the IVF procedure and she was admitted to the hospital in January itself.

Medical counselling was also provided to her, considering the age at which she wanted to conceive and the society around her might not be very open to the idea. However, the couple decided to face every hurdle on their path confidently in order to achieve their dream of becoming parents. The woman's mother aged 95 also reached the hospital to welcome her grandchildren and take part in the family celebration.
