Her mother was 52 when she was born.

One of my best friends in high school was the 7th child, the oops child. Her mother was 52 when she was born. There is a 13 year gap between her and the 6th child.


The woman in the next room had delivered her 5th at the age of 45. (same age as my mother-in-law then) . My best friend has her first at 41, then twins less than 2 years later. Nothing wrong with being an older mom.


I have four children, Their ages are 27, 22 & 20 years and 29 months. I am 46, which made me 44 when my youngest was born, it was not a easy to accept the fact that I was going to be a mom again after so long.


Women have been having babies well into their 40s for a long time. You can't have 10 or 12 kids, like they did at the turn of the century, and not be 40! Do the math!


I had my God given twins at 37 years old after thinking I would never get pregnant and surprised with another at 42. I say it depends on the woman.

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.
