TCM success: 48y gave birth from own eggs

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, November 30, 2007 | 0 comments

Granulated herbs are equally good the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) guy told me and he said he had success with a 48 year old who has just given birth (with own egg)


I've got a friend whose mother delivered at 47 and her mother-in-law at 48 (we're talking in the early 50's ladies -- no donor eggs! )

I even heard about a woman in our church who was expecting at 50.


Wanted to ask you if I should learn or get more herbs than I am taking now. Also, don't know if you remember, but I JUST turned 46 so I am certainly fighting the odds.. (but my RE also helped a 46, 47 and 48 get pregnant with their own eggs).


On A Current Affair show here, they showed a woman of 47 who was told to give up. As a last resort, she tried acupuncture and herbs for a few months. She has just had her first baby 1 month ago.


Please don't ever let any one tell you you're too old, not even your mum. Don't let anyone deter you from your dream, especially since it is entirely possible, not at all unrealistic, and is brought forth by love and affection. If she needs any more reason to change her tune, let her know that this old lady, in chronological age only, gave birth at 45.

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.
