Image: It is just menopause - Mother at 46A mother gave birth to a baby boy after doctors repeatedly assured her she was going through the menopause.

Anita Arora, 46 years old, said her child almost died in her womb after her suspicions that she was pregnant were ignored.

Her son, Matthew, was delivered in a life-saving operation on Christmas Day – just two days after she found out she was expecting.

The infant, who was two months premature, would have died if surgeons had not delivered him immediately because of problems with the placenta.

She said: I told them five months ago I thought I was pregnant. My periods had stopped and I was gaining weight. I asked whether it was possible, but they told me not to worry, it was just my age.

Mrs Arora, a post office manager, and her driving instructor husband Kanti, 48, already have two children – Neil, 15, and Kamya, 13.

Image: What I Thought I Knew: A Memoir, by Alice Eve Cohen. Publisher: Viking Adult (July 9, 2009)What I Thought I Knew: A Memoir
by Alice Eve Cohen
--A personal and medical odyssey beyond anything most women would believe possible

At age forty-four, Alice Eve Cohen was happy for the first time in years. After a difficult divorce, she was engaged to an inspiring man, joyfully raising her adopted daughter, and her career was blossoming. Alice tells her fiancé that she's never been happier. And then the stomach pains begin.

In her unflinchingly honest and ruefully witty voice, Alice nimbly carries us through her metamorphosis from a woman who has come to terms with infertility to one who struggles to love a heartbeat found in her womb - six months into a high-risk pregnancy.

What I Thought I Knew is a page-turner filled with vivid characters, humor, and many surprises and twists of fate. With the suspense of a thriller and the intimacy of a diary, Cohen describes her unexpected journey through doubt, a broken medical system, and the hotly contested terrain of motherhood and family in today's society. Timely and compelling, What I Thought I Knew will capture readers of memoirs such as Eat, Pray, Love; The Glass Castle; and A Three Dog Life.

Image: First time mother: Fiona Palin, 49, who tried, unsuccessfully, to conceive for a decade, breastfeeds five-month-old daughter KikiIt may seem a concept that defies nature, but with the help of fertility specialists, rising numbers of women are giving birth to their firstborns at an age when many of their peers are anticipating, or enjoying, grandparenthood.

Ann Maloney, who gave birth to her first baby at 50, is just one example.

She told New York Magazine how she and her second husband, John Ross, who she met when she was 47, conceived using a donor egg within a year of meeting.

Fiona Palin, from Los Angeles, California, who, like Kelly Preston, was 48 when she gave birth to new baby daughter Katherine, is not much younger and also struggled to conceive.

Since she and husband Nick, 63, started trying for a baby ten years ago, she went through six failed IVF [in vitro fertilization] cycles and three tragic pregnancy losses.

Monica told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair magazine that she decided to reveal all again to show that being a middle-aged mum is not a problem.

Monica said that she had not used medical treatment to fall pregnant.

Maybe it's because my paternal grandmother had a child at 47 years old, but I think I'm just lucky.

Image: Infertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective, by Roy Sokol. Publisher: Rosedog Pr (January 3, 2012)Infertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective
by Roy Sokol

-- Roy Sokol offers men a chance to be heard and women a rare opportunity to view the struggle with infertility from a male perspective.

Infertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective brings to life the frustration, anger, humor, heartbreak, and sense of helplessness and a mental philosophy learned in Marine Corps training that helps in overcoming the psychological barriers.

While miracles in technology have brought joy to new families, those very advances have placed many couples into a spiraling cycle of hope and heartbreak.

One failed attempt may lead to another, but how do you give up when there is always another doctor, another procedure holding the possibility of your dream for a family?

Roy Sokol has captured the emotional turmoil he and his wife, Elizabeth, endured as they tried to conceive, the years their lives were put on hold, and the excruciating sense of loss and finally great happiness.

He writes too of the couple's journey through the bewildering world of adoption - a path to parenthood fraught with financial, legal, and emotional risks of its own.

Image: Arcelia Garcia, a 54-Year-Old Grandmother, Gives Birth to Three Healthy GirlsJanuary 24, 2000 - When 54-year-old Arcelia Garcia began feeling tired last summer, she was running a schedule that would have put a woman half her age to shame.

Yet she was troubled enough by her unexpected fatigue to take time out to visit her doctor.

Boy, was she in for a surprise. Not only was Garcia two months pregnant—she was carrying triplets.

The news came like a bright star, says Garcia, whose other children range in age from 16 to 35.

To have a child is so wonderful; you never feel like you're too old.

Her pregnancy stunned fertility experts for two reasons: The average age of menopause is 51, and triplets occur in just one of every 8,000 pregnancies.

The probability of someone over 50 having triplets is one in a million, says Dr. Larry Shields, a perinatal specialist at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Juliet Le Page became Scotland’s oldest mother when she gave birth at 50 years old.

Having settled down with her husband Richard, who is ten years her junior, Juliet has always been determined to have children.

I was quite a determined person, I'd met my husband and thought 'I really want to have a family with this man' , Juliet said.

I was pretty sure I wasn't able to conceive naturally, so it had to be some form of assisted conception.

The proportion of women in the UK having children in their forties is the highest it has been in decades.

Fertility rates for women aged 30 and over has gradually increased since 1980, with more women having children between 30 and 34 than those aged 25-29 since 2002.

Birth statistics over the past twenty years show a huge swing in favour of delaying parenthood till our thirties and beyond.
