Old Photo - Stock Photo Credit: ontzyJuly 4, 1932 - Having given birth to her first child at 55 years and 69 days, Mrs. Mary Higgins of Cord, Ireland bids fair to win the prize offered by a London newspaper for information as to the "oldest mother" in the last 20 years.

Thus far, the runner-up is Mrs. Elizabeth Pierce of Biterne, Southampton, whose youngest child was born when she was 54 years and 40 days.

The paper calls attention to an old announcement in the Royal Cornwall Gazette of January 2, 1819, reporting the birth of twins on Christmas Eve, to Mrs. George Saunders, wife of a London shoemaker in her 59th year.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
What Every Woman Should Know About Fertility and Her Biological Clock, by Cara Birrittieri. Publisher: Career Press (May 26, 2009)What Every Woman Should Know About Fertility and Her Biological Clock
by Cara Birrittieri

-- Until now, there has been little practical advice on what women can do about ticking biological clocks.

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock is the first book to explore a woman's reproductive life span completely, from beginning to end.

Based on Cara Birrittieri's own experience of running up against a slowing biological clock, she shows women for the first time how to "tell what time it is" with a simple blood test that gives them a peek at the state of their ovaries.

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.
