My grandmother had her youngest at 48 years old

My grandmother had her youngest at 48 years old. Grandpa was 58 years old. There were no complications (he was born at home with a midwife) and he went on to have 2 children of his own. He's in his late 60s now.


A friend from long ago, had a wonderful pregnancy at age 47.


Chloe was born when I was 44.


I am 44 and my kids are 19, 18, 7, 20 months and twins at 6 months.


I was 45 when I gave birth to my second daughter, she is now 8 weeks old. I was 44 when I fell pregnant (Australian) with Isabella. What did I do to make this happen? We were incredibly lucky for it to happen 16 months after the birth of my first daughter. - Cathy

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.
