When Linda de Lange gave birth to her fourth son, one month away from her 48th birthday, the unplanned pregnancy divided her family and friends.
“From some of my female friends, there was immediate hysterical laughter – they would say it was their worst nightmare. Others were very jealous.
At that stage in life, the choices are being taken away from you. I became aware that quite a few women I knew had a secret yen for another child,” she says.
But that was nothing compared with the response from her doctor. “My GP said: ‘I’ve never met anyone as old as you who has given birth.’ That was really not helpful,” says Mrs de Lange, laughing now, eight years after Benjamin was born.
There was one more tricky audience to face. She and her husband, Matthew, had to tell their three sons – then aged between 15 and 20 – who were, she says, “pretty disgusted” by the thought of what their parents had been up to.
