Delivered 10 babies to women over 44

Image: Cute BabyBoy, by Pasztor Simon on PixabayI was listening to the radio yesterday, and there was a lady on the phone on a talk show.

She and her husband stopped practicing contraception and started charting her cycles.

They already had two grown children.

Now they also have a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old and she's pregnant again.... and 46 years old!

Which means she was 42 years old when she had her 4-year-old and 44 years old when she had her 2-year-old.


My doctor also encouraged me, by telling me she has delivered 10 babies this past year - to women over 44 years old.


I knew a woman years ago, who had her first child at 41 years old, her second child at 44 years old.

Then she had twins at 50 years old!

I'm sure the twins were conceived with some medical help but still - it happens.

I don't know if she ever had any miscarriages, but I do know she smoked up until she got pregnant the first time.

Whenever I get discouraged, I think about her.

She used to be an editor for Time magazine and has written a couple of books.


There is another poster on the Pregnant over 40 board who is over 45 years old!

In fact, she has had two over 40 pregnancies.

She will be 46 years old when she delivers her second baby.

I just wanted you guys to get some inspiration!

I am so inspired by this amazing number of over 44-year-old women getting pregnant.

It really does happen girls - and much more often than we think!


June, 47 years old, UK

- I am currently 11 weeks pregnant, having conceived naturally at 47 years old.

I will be two months short of my 48th birthday when I deliver this baby.

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.
