There was a lady of 52 who gave birth the same day

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, November 17, 2006 | 0 comments

When my mother-in-law had her last, there was a lady of 52 who gave birth that same day. The woman was from a secluded religious community several miles away, one that does not believe in modern things like reproductive assistance, so I'm certain this was a natural conception.


I am 43, (44 in May).. and I am plain shocked I AM PREGGERS AGAIN! I thought I was going thru menopause but, I had several miscarriages in early months, usually around 3-4 months..


I am new here and will spend a bit of time reading a few posts, currently pregnant (10 weeks with good scans & heartbeat) and due after my 45th birthday.

When I got pregnant at almost 46, no-one even commented, I wasn't automatically classed as high risk, and the consultant was perfectly happy for me to have midwife-led care and a home delivery!


My friend's mother had his sister in her late forties (the mom, not the sister. She was a baby) and his mom's mother had his aunt in HER late forties. I believe in taking care of ourselves, but at the same time, let's face it, women have been popping them out from age 12 to fifties as far back as anyone knows.

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.
