I have a cousin who is naturally pregnant at 46

I have a cousin who is pregnant at 46.5 years old, became pregnant naturally (It was a big surprise!) and had an uneventful pregnancy and delivered a girl last year. She had been trying for 10 years + and gave up... --- Mary D.

[My baby] is due in February. I [turned] 45 in August. It can happen. --- Acacia


My Aunt has told me that her friend got pregnant at 45, after trying for 4 years. The only thing she did differently was adding Whey Protein to her diet.


Our neighbour has a colleague at work who is pregnant for the second time at 49. The first, she had at 47. We recently ran into a couple who had conceived for the first time without help when she was 46.


There are many women who have babies at our age and older. My new wonderful doc at Kaiser Oakland has shown me pictures on her wall of women up to 51 years old, holding their new babies! She says that she can really not do much for me, (they don't do IVF which I don't want anyway, I'm going for IUI..) but has highly recommended acupuncture and claims that most of her success stories came from women who did "alternative" treatments. I suggest that if you have a negative doc, just keep looking until you find a positive one. They are hard to find, but they are out there. Good luck :) Mishla

by Liz Angeles

-- 45 and PREGNANT is a 3-part journey that begins with a 44-year-old single woman with no prospects, that leads quickly to a middle-aged pregnancy.

Her fears and worries about childbirth with her historically low pain threshold were later transformed by her decision to have a home water birth with no drugs and her success story that involved no complications.

Beginning with a serendipitous love story that led to the sudden pregnancy and concluding with the family events that transpired beyond the delivery, Liz Angeles provides a plethora of information for anyone considering a natural birth.

Her comical memoir spanning a 5-year period includes many healthy pregnancy tips and natural parenting options.

Her revealing details and personal choices promise to educate, entertain and inspire.

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.
