IVF for women in their 50s

IVF for women in their 50s
Pauline Lyon, who had two children in her 50's with IVF, supports giving the treatment to older women.

Pauline made history in 1995 when she gave birth to Lauren at the age of 51 — becoming, at the time, Britain'’s oldest mum. Four years later, she had IVF again, to conceive Brodie.

She and husband David, 62, both have grown-up children from earlier marriages but wanted a family together.

And the American study confirmed what they believed all along — that older mothers have more patience and just as much energy as many young mums.

She says: “I often talk to much younger mums at the school who say, ‘Oh God, I’m knackered today.’ But I never feel like that.

“We go swimming, we’re always out playing in the garden, we do car boot sales — the kids love them.”

She insists: “If I hadn'’t been able to cope I would not have had one, let alone two.”

No one knows what’s around the corner. My children know they are wanted and loved — not every child can say that.”

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.
