Against all odds, Tracey Britten conceived at the age of 50 and has carried for 30 weeks. In November, she’ll make history as Britain’s oldest mother of quadruplets once she’s given birth.
Due to her age, Mrs. Britten needed fertility treatment to increase her chances of falling pregnant.
Along with her husband, Stephen, the pair opted to have her eggs extracted at the Kolan British IVF Centre in Cyprus. After fertilisation, the embryos were then implanted back into her womb.
Her alibi for the trip was that it was a much needed vacation but their sole purpose was to undergo the treatment.
The process is notoriously costly but Mrs. Britten was able to use £7,000 of her inheritance to have it funded.
The proud mother to be says doctors were sceptical that she’d be able to carry up to 28 weeks but this is her 30th now, with her due date set for early November.
Already a mother of 3, she revealed that she and 2nd husband, Stephen, made the difficult decision to terminate a previous pregnancy in 2005.
The trauma and disappointment were key factors in her decision to opt for the fertility treatment now.
Mrs. Britten is due to give birth to identical twin daughters, another daughter and a son.
