After few years of their marriage, they expected children, but dreams were not fulfilled.
The Hans India reports that though the couple became old, their dream was not fulfilled.
Recently, a woman residing near their house became pregnant at the age of 55-years through IVF.
Mangayamma drew inspiration from her.
She along with her husband approached Ahalya Nursing Home in Guntur city.
They met IVF expert Dr. Sanakkayala Umashankar. The doctors collected Mangayamma’s husband sperm and tried in the IVF system. Doctors efforts were fruitful.

Mangayamma is eagerly waiting for children.
Dr. Umashankar said ” If Mangayamma will give birth to children, it will become world record.”
