Juliet Le Page became Scotland's oldest mother when she gave birth at 50 years old.

Having settled down with her husband Richard, who is ten years her junior, Juliet has always been determined to have children.

I was quite a determined person, I'd met my husband and thought 'I really want to have a family with this man', Juliet said.

I was pretty sure I wasn't able to conceive naturally, so it had to be some form of assisted conception.

The proportion of women in the UK having children in their forties is the highest it has been in decades.

Fertility rates for women aged 30 and over has gradually increased since 1980, with more women having children between 30 and 34 than those aged 25-29 since 2002.

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.
