Community traditions, norms, and values change from day to day, but the expectations regarding having children do not seem to want to change much. Women who have children over the age of 40 are deeply stigmatized and become the subjects of public discourse.
What does the community say about the extraordinary cases when a woman gives birth at the age of 60-70? This is indeed very difficult to digest even in 2022, but fortunately, when such a case occurs, a healthy offspring is usually born.
Galina Shubenina became world famous by giving birth to a healthy baby girl at the age of 60 in 2015. Everyone tried to dissuade the woman from Russia, from doctors to relatives, but Galina really wanted the child, and no negative reason would dissuade her from her plan.
She persevered and gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl named Cleopatra.
Galina married at the age of 20 and had a son, Andrei. Over time, her marriage turned sour and she raised her son alone. However, at the age of 50, love came into her life again and she met Alexey, a man 8 years younger than her. After a short time, they got married.
The woman was very happy, but a few years later her son Andrei ᴅ.ɪᴇ.ᴅ suddenly. Galina was very sad when Alexey told her what he would say to her if they had a child together. This is how Kleopátra was born on January 9, 2015, weighing 2.9 kilograms and 49 cm long.
Now the little girl is 7 years old and completely healthy, neither physiologically nor intellectually different from her peers. She goes to kindergarten, can already read and loves dancing, which is why her parents enrolled her in a dance school.
