Filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan has penned an open letter on choosing In vitro fertilisation to become a mother at the age of 43. She is mother to triplets – Anya, Czar and Diva — who’re 12. She mentioned within the letter that she became a mother when she wished to and never as per the diktats of the society.
“As a daughter, wife and a mother, I’ve had to make many choices because of which I have become the choreographer, filmmaker and producer that I am. Every time I felt the moment was right, I listened to my gut and seized it. Whether it was for my career or for my family. We think about people’s judgements so much, we forget that it’s our life and it’s our call!” she wrote within the letter.
She mentioned that there is no such thing as a acceptable age to conceive as deemed by the society. “Today I am a proud mother of three because of a choice. I became a mother when I was ready for it, not when the society deems “the appropriate age to conceive.” Thanks to developments in science, I was ready to do it via IVF at my age. Today, it’s good to see that extra ladies are making this selection with out worry of judgement, altering folks’s mindsets and taking their happiness in their very own arms. I not too long ago got here to know of a present on Sony TV referred to as Story 9 Months Ki which makes a daring and sincere assertion – Agar pyaar ke bina shaadi ho sakti hai, toh pati ke bina maa kyu nahi?”
She wrote whereas sharing the letter, “Our choices make us. I became an IVF mom at 43 and I am glad I did so. I wish a great motherhood to all women out there who want to be mothers – naturally or otherwise. An open letter to all the women out there, reminding them that #ItsAWomansCall Are you with me ladies? Kudos to @SonyTVofficial for #Story9MonthsKi.”
