There was a 50y in the maternity unit

There's hope for us all then! There was a 50 year-old opposite me in the maternity unit, having her 2nd child 25 years to the day after her 1st! Pretty amazing!


My auntie had her 3rd baby at 52! She had no problems at all, and her son weighed in at a healthy 8lb 12oz! She said she actually had more worries and problems with her first when she was aged 25!


My mother had her last when she was 45, but she was a professional ballet dancer.


My mom was 48 when she had me. Good LUCK


Elvis Presley’s ex-wife Pricilla had a baby at 53. It’s good nutrition, and good pre-natal care.

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.
