Image: Who Else Wants to Have a Baby over 40? The Keys to Pregnancy Over 40, by Deborah Lynn WhiteWho Else Wants to Have a Baby over 40?
by Deborah Lynn White

-- Are you afraid you might never be able to have a baby? I was, especially after losing my first baby at age 44 to a miscarriage.

When I was younger, I assumed getting pregnant was supposed to come naturally. It didn't by a long shot.

Does this sound like you?

You want a baby of your own. You have spent years in your career and now realize you need to try to have a baby NOW.

Maybe you thought you would meet and marry the right man and then have kids. You never found him and now you’re over 40. He never showed up.

Lots of other women over 40 have gotten pregnant – you can too! This is not a story about extreme trauma and loss but one of perseverance and hope. I have not been through IVF or anything more invasive than IUI.

I don’t have a story of extreme devastation to tell. I had heartache and miscarriage, but got pregnant and had a healthy baby at 45.

The couple have two adopted children, a boy aged 16 and a girl aged 12, who used to be in foster care.

In the early hours of Sunday morning thieves broke into Julie Coghill's Gilmerton home that she shares with husband Philip, 15-year-old son and two foster children under the age of two and stole car keys and other items.

Mrs Coghill's story was made public when a friend called local radio DJ for Forth One Grant Stott who talked about her situation on air and grabbed the attention of Paula Lackie's husband from Haddington, East Lothian.

Mr and Mrs Lackie decided to give Julie their buggie, which they were planning to sell because it is too big for their car.

Image: Mandy Parry, 46, 7 cycles of IVF, five attempts at donor egg insemination
We followed seven cycles of IVF and five attempts at donor egg insemination

Mandy Parry, 46, is a teacher and lives in Bristol with husband Mark, 47, a community safety officer, and their five-month-old daughter Violet. Mandy says:

Having been through seven years of grueling, heartbreaking fertility treatment, I'd urge any women thinking about delaying motherhood not to, for their own sakes.

I'd have loved children in my early 30s but I didn't meet the right man, Mark, until I was 39.

When we started trying for a family six months later I kept losing my pregnancies and discovered that my eggs were no longer healthy.

Then followed seven cycles of IVF and five attempts at donor egg insemination in South Africa before I finally had Violet in May this year.

We spent £50,000 — the equity from the house I sold when I met Mark and moved in with him — and it was emotionally and physically draining.

It was scary finding out I was ­pregnant last year, because I'd been pregnant four times before and lost all of them in the first three months.

I spent the whole pregnancy waiting for something bad to happen.

Mark has three children from his first marriage, but he wanted a baby as much as I did.

It's weird to think that when he was a father of three in his 20s, I was young, free, single and partying in London. With hindsight, he feels he was too young to truly appreciate his children then.

The advantage of having a baby at 46 is that I've got the support of a ­wonderful, mature man. We're financially secure and feel safe and stable in our marriage.

I don't worry about being an older mum in terms of being around for her future. My dad was 44 when I was born and mum was 36, so I grew up with older parents. And I've got as much energy as any other mum.

I've got a few friends who feel it's immoral to have a baby in your late 40s, but they know how much I'd have loved to have had a child years ago and what a battle we've been through to have Violet.

Whether we'll have another child is a sore point. Mark thinks we should count our blessings, but we've got seven more embryos in South Africa that we've paid for, so the temptation for me is to try for another baby.

The Passion of the Christ star was 39 when she gave birth to her first child Deva, seven, and 45 when she had her second one, reported a website.

I worried I wouldn't be ready to give myself. When the first one came, I thought I'd have another really quickly because I knew I didn't have much time left. I was lucky to get pregnant at 44. We didn't have to try for a long time. It was natural, Bellucci said.

Image: Fertility Diet and the Journey to Our 2nd ChildNow that I am in my mid-forties and eight months pregnant with our dream second child, I thought it was important to share the story of our journey toward baby number two -- which was different (and even more challenging) than the one toward our first baby.

You probably already know the story of how we conceived our first child, our son, Julien...

My husband and I had been trying for over a year to get pregnant when finally we went to see a reproductive endocrinologist (a fertility specialist). I had just turned 40.

After all tests were done, this doctor explained that we had a 2% chance of conceiving on our own. Just four months later we conceived our son.

Two months shy of my 44th birthday, we got a happy surprise and conceived naturally. Our excitement turned to sadness, though, as I miscarried at 10 weeks.

It's at that time when I first allowed the idea of donor eggs to enter my mind. A donor egg baby, I knew, would be mine, too, just like my son.

Not only did I get pregnant at 45, but we had two high-quality embryos to freeze for possible future use. Our daughter is due the end of July, 2011, and I cannot wait.

January 10, 2010 - Lia Lambrino, the wife of Paul Lambino, who pretends to the title of Prince of Romania, gave birth to a son at a Bucharest Hospital. Carol Ferdinand Lambrino weighed 4.9 lbs.

Although Romanian news sources state that Lia is 56, she is actually 60 years old, and will celebrate her 61st birthday on February 23.

It is unlikely that this baby was conceived in a natural manner, considering Lia's true age. It appears that a little medical tinkering was done to achieve the goal of giving birth at the age of 60.

My wife and I a long time we wanted a child, says Prince Paul in a statement released to the media. It is also a time of accomplishment and because our son was born in Romania, as we wanted. Birth of our son is one more reason to reaffirm my duty to honor our ancestors and to the generation to come, for him to know better and understand the history of the Romanian people, which they love so much.

This is the first child for Paul Lambrino. Lia Lambrino has a 37-year-old daughter, Melia, from her first marriage to lawyer Melvin Belli.

Shortly after their 22nd wedding anniversary, she found out she was pregnant for the first time.

She was 45 years old.

I personally know one close friend and one acquaintance who got pregnant with IVF at 43 years old, and delivered a beautiful baby girl at 44.

I know for my friend that she got pregnant on the first try.

Her baby is now about 5 months old and she is gearing up to try again at 44.

The other acquaintance also got pregnant at 43 with IVF.

I don't know as much about her story, but, from what I understand, she also got pregnant on the first try with IVF.

A girlfriend of mine had had 2 horrible miscarriages (one was at 5 months and she nearly bled to death).

Then, after seeing an acupuncturist and taking herbs, she got pregnant and gave birth at 43 years old!

She has a beautiful healthy daughter, and it was all natural!
