Fran Watson gave birth to Angus when she was 43 years old, having waited 20 years to find the right partner, get married and then have a child.

What I feel as a mom who waited a long time is 'My God, I'm happy,' said the longtime publicist.  

And what can possibly be wrong with that wonderful feeling?

A fitness professional in Calgary, Helen Vanderburg said she delayed having children mostly because she wasn't in a committed relationship until she was older; building her career played a secondary role.

She underwent a full complement of testing to rule out any genetic abnormalities and, at 45 years old, gave birth to her daughter, Sage.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
