Farah Khan became an IVF mother at 43 – and she wouldn’t change a thing

Some people are afraid to try IVF because they don’t know anyone personally who has gone through the treatments. That’s why reality TV show judge and Bollywood choreographer Farah Khan has decided to become even more open about her experiences. She chose to go through IVF when she was 43 – and she says it’s the best decision she ever made.

Farah isn’t afraid to tell people her opinions, and for her, she wanted the freedom to become a mother on her own terms. She birthed triplets – son Czar and two daughters called Diva and Anya – via IVF. In a recent open letter on social media, she wrote:

“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?”

Her followers shared many reactions of support for the post, which continued, “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!”

That’s such an important point that many women forget – it’s always your choice when, how, and even if you have a baby. While your husband and family will have opinions, as Farah says, it’s your call.

Her letter continued, “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 advancements in science, I was able to do it via IVF at my age. Today, it’s nice to see that more women are making this choice without fear of judgement, changing people’s mindsets and taking their happiness in their own hands. I recently came to know of a show on called Story 9 Months Ki which makes a bold and honest statement – Agar pyaar ke bina shaadi ho sakti hai, toh pati ke bina maa kyu nahi?” (If marriage can happen without love, why not a mother without a husband”

Farah is a bold and courageous woman in entertainment, and she continues to lead by example and share her strength, wisdom, and experience.

She finished her letter, “As a filmmaker when I hear such progressive premises of a television show, it makes me very proud and happy to know that women’s choices are being acknowledged. I wish a great motherhood to all women out there who want to be mothers – naturally or otherwise. Always remember, it’s a woman’s call!”

We continue to wish Farah and her family all of the health and happiness in the world, and thank her for speaking out.
