I opened my post office box and removed an AARP magazine, a La Leche League newsletter, and a postcard of a pagoda in Myanmar, which I'd mailed to myself two weeks earlier while on assignment in the country formerly known as Burma.

The Idaho mountain morning was autumn orange, my first at home after 24 sleepless hours flying economy class from Yangon.

My baby screamed whenever the stroller stopped rocking, and the early miseries of a cold pounded in my head.

I am 54 years old and suffering the delirious consequences of weaning a baby and being one of the first Western journalists to visit Naypyidaw, the new capital city of the military dictatorship that has held the Nobel Peace Prize-winner Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest for much of the past 18 years.

No doubt, I am also the first breastfeeding 54-year-old journalist to go this route.

(No, I didn't take my son with me: Myanmar, military dictators, and babies really don't mix.)

June 18, 2009 - Even if the two digits - 54 - were reversed, Sarajean Grainson would be considered an older mom.

But she'll turn 54 years old in July, and last month the Valley Stream woman gave birth to fraternal twins Matthew and David.

It's not so shocking anymore for a woman in her 50s to have a newborn.

But the Grainson clan gathered for a news conference Thursday at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, where the twins were born because Grainson said she wanted to inspire women not to give up on the dream of carrying a baby.

I want women to know there is no biological clock. . . . It's not ticking anymore, Grainson said.

A doctor brought Grainson out of menopause and combined donor eggs with her husband's sperm.

Grainson plans to stay home full-time; she joked while other women jump from planes or go to the Caribbean in retirement, she'll joyfully spend hers raising children.

Image: Enhancing Fertility Naturally: Holistic Therapies for a Successful Pregnancy, by Nicky Wesson. Publisher: Healing Arts Press (April 1, 1999)Enhancing Fertility Naturally: Holistic Therapies for a Successful Pregnancy
by Nicky Wesson

-- Outlines ways in which you can improve your fertility through alternative therapies, diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques and avoid some of the hazards associated with conventional treatments.

It discusses the most common causes of infertility and explains how to determine which therapy is most appropriate for you.

In vitro fertilization, conventional medicine's most prescribed remedy for infertility problems is expensive, dangerous, and has a success rate of only 14 percent, yet few of the one in six couples that experience infertility are aware of the effectiveness and safety provided by the wide range of alternative treatments.

Thoroughly researched and packed full of invaluable advice and tips, the book explores such therapies as acupuncture, reflexology, homeopathy, cranial osteopathy, aromatherapy, and herbalism.

The author includes case histories for each of the therapies discussed, showing how the therapies helped couples overcome both primary and secondary infertility in order to have the baby they longed for.

Dr. Carolyn Schweitzer took a hiatus from her dental career, when she learned she was pregnant at 45 years old - in spite of having been told it was more likely pigs would fly!

Carolyn gave birth to a healthy baby boy when she was 46 years old.

Now she divides her time between dentistry, her family, and writing about her life as an older mom at MommyInTheMiddle.com.

Carolyn says: Having my first and only child at 46 years old was a bit of a shock to me since I wasn't one of those women who had yearned for children or tried particularly hard to have one.

At the time I conceived, my husband and I simply weren't NOT trying.

Our little angel was conceived over a miniature bottle of white wine one summer night in mid-June of 2005.

I know this because that month was such a whirlwind, my husband and I only got together that one time!

by Kelly James-Enger and Jill S. Browning

-- Infertility is a mindset and that every woman who experiences infertility is forever changed, even when she eventually has the child she yearned for.

When many women who have gone through fertility treatments describe their experience, they say it abused their soul.

The experience may have also hurt their relationship with their husband and sometimes permanently altered relationships with their extended families.

Studies show that even after the desperation of infertility subsides, emotional wounds still fester and an asterisk accompanies her bundle of joy.

Image: The Benefits of Being an Older Mom
Photo credit: Mamiverse.com - All rights reserved
I had my first child last year, a few months after I'd turned 45 years old.

My husband and I (though he is six years younger than me) are taking on new parenthood at a time when most parents our age are looking ahead to diapering their first grandchild, not their own newborn.

I am sure, when I was 25 years old, if someone had told me a 45-year-old woman maybe, just maybe, was wiser than me as a result of age and experience, I would have told that person to stuff it — except I would have used a less-polite term.

But now, through the benefit of that same age and experience I did not think mattered, I now see we older moms do offer certain advantages to our kids.

Find out the reasons why being an older mom is better at Mamiverse.com.

I just read on a site a 50-year-old woman is nine weeks pregnant after doing an IVF (in vitro fertilization).

This was in Europe, no donor eggs were used, and the parents-to-be are just delirious.

She got pregnant on her very first try.

She got married when she was 45 years old.

She wanted kids as soon as she did get married, but never thought about alternative treatments.

Because of her poor responses to ovarian stimulation, inferior oocyte grading and prohibition of donor oocyte usage in Japan, the couple decided to discontinue further IVF treatment at age 48 years, 10 months.

One and one-half years later, at age 50 years, 3 months she presented to our clinic eight weeks pregnant.

At term she delivered vaginally a 2740 gram healthy infant at 38 weeks gestation; Apgar scores were 9 and 10.
