A number of women had a healthy baby at 45+

My sister has told me of a number of women that she knows who have had children, then had multiple miscarriages in their forties, and then a healthy baby at 45 or later. So it is possible.


My grandmother had a baby at 51


A friend of mine had a baby at 51!


My mom had her last baby at 51. My little sister just turned 9. My mom is now thinking about how she will be 70 when my sister graduates high school.


Miriam Belov - Shares her thought regarding wellness and relaxation at home and work, as well a her joy of giving her first birth at 51 to Madaline

Miriam says: As you might have figured out, I am now in my 50's. After being very concentrated on my calling, I found myself pregnant for the first time at 51. Needless to say, my husband and I were elated. After a blessedly uneventful pregnancy, I gave birth to a daughter.

I sincerely believe that I was able to carry so easily because I used my own relaxation techniques and have a healthy body due to years of exercise, yoga, tai chi and right eating.

Indeed, during the pregnancy I spent a great of time in meditation and relaxation. I feel that the 9 months of gestation are crucial for the developing fetus and affect the rest of her life.

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.
