I conceived naturally last year at nearly 46

I conceived naturally last year at nearly 46. Although I lost the baby, the loss was in no way age-related, according to the consultant. Diet and supplements - and not being too rigid about having fun! - are important.


I conceived this past February naturally at the tender age of 46. I also lost my baby. I was three months along when it suddenly stopped developing and I had what is called a missed- miscarriage. I am still trying and since then have turned 47. Like Mel, my doctor did not think it was age related. I take a multitude of vitamins as well as pre natal ones. The only other thing is to believe you can and you will.


I conceived my little boy when I was 43 and gave birth to him at 44 and a quarter ... no amnio or cvs, just nuchal scan and he was perfect in every way. He wasn't planned (just one time that month) but we were overjoyed when I found I was pregnant. - Liz x


My midwife friend in New Zealand, delivered twin boys to a woman of 46 a couple of weeks ago - first children - conceived naturally ...


Over the years, I have heard about so many women who had babies in their 40's. My favourite author's wife had her last two at 44 and 48! My backyard neighbour had one at 50 when I was growing up, and my great aunt had her last at 46.

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.
