This morning, Meredith spoke with Frieda Birnbaum, the 60-year-old New Jersey woman who gave birth to twins boys on Tuesday. WATCH VIDEO
Birnbaum now has five children with her husband, Ken. In addition to the twins, they have a 33-year-old son, a 28-year-old daughter and a 6-year-old son. The three youngest children were all conceived by in-vitro fertilization.
Birnbaum told Meredith that she hopes to be a role model for other middle-aged women, showing them that they have more choices than commonly believed.
Birnbaum's story has touched off a national debate over whether it is healthy or ethical for a 60-year-old woman to have children. Studies show that medical risks rise dramatically for women who give birth after age 40 and their children.
So, what do you think? Is Frieda Birnbaum a role model and example of female empowerment or did she and her husband make a needlessly risky choice?
