Friend's mother had her last child at age 47

I have a friend who's mother had her last child at age 47 number 8 and she was born as healthy as could be. I don't care how old you are there is always a risk carrying a baby. Every woman is different and you may not have any problems at all. The doctors just have to do their job and warn you of everything possible that could go wrong, they are not God.


I had my first child at 44 - a beautiful baby girl. I am now 47 and have had two early term miscarriages, one at age 45 and one at age 46 - but I am still hopeful that I could have a successful pregnancy.


My aunt gave birth at 45 - my friend gave birth at 46 - all fine and happy and healthy


My husband and I are thinking about having our first baby. I'm 47 and my mother was 45 when she had me. I work with 2 naturopathic doctors and both have given me the thumbs up, and in such a beautiful positive manner.


My mother conceived her fifth child naturally at the age of 47, 14 years ago. Despite the risks associated with pregnancy and a woman her age, she gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby girl, without any complications. My little sister is the most intelligent of my siblings and the light of our lives! We're so lucky to have her.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
