Almost 44 when Isabel arrived

I was still in my 20s (29 years old), when I duly brought forth my son Charlie, now 23 years old.

Two years and three months after my first baby - and by now in my early 30s - I gave birth to Alice, who will be 21 years old this month.

Soon after this, my marriage broke down, and I settled into almost a decade of raising my small family as a single parent.

And then, shortly before my 44th birthday, my second husband and I celebrated the arrival of Isabel, who has just turned nine years old.

I am, in spite of my mother's misgivings, the proud mother of three children, each born in a different decade of my life.

How Unexplained Infertility, Miscarriage and IVF Failure Can Be Explained and Treated with Immunotherapy
by Alan E. Beer, Julia Kantecki, Jane Reed

-- A unique book—the first of its kind. No longer do patients have to accept their infertility is just bad luck and they just have to keep on trying.

No longer should women with recurrent miscarriages have to listen to their doctor telling them that their loss was God's will or that they ought to be thankful because their baby was probably chromosomal-ly abnormal.

The statistics simply do not support such claims — in fact, they show repeated reproductive failure can be a symptom of wider health problems in the mother.

Furthermore, the root cause can be treated — not only to promote the chances of a successful pregnancy but to improve the mother's health long-term.

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.
