My aunt was born when my grandmother was 48

Not so long ago it used to be common for women to have a menopause baby in their 40's or 50's. I have an aunt that was born when my grandmother was 48.


There's a lady at work who had her first child at 50. The kid is starting kindergarten this year. Both mother and child are doing fine.


I actually have one to add. One of the lawyers I work with just celebrated her 57th birthday. She has a 13 yr old son which means she had him at 44 -- completely natural.


But do not give up hope! Look at June who recently gave birth at 47! And there is lovely Ann who has got pregnant at 44 (I did myself last year). She has also said she wants another one after this pregnancy.


That’s rubbish about women being too old! My grandmother had my mum at 49, and that was 56 years ago. So if it happened back then, it can happen now. Doctors make me laugh, they think they know it all!

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.
