When Kemper Scott Foster arrived on the planet June 9th, it didn't matter that Jo Ann, 53 years old, and her husband, Scott, had created him in a petri dish, an amalgam of Scott's sperm and another woman's egg.

It didn't matter that, days later, Jo Ann faced a complication threatening to render Kemper Scott a motherless child.

What mattered to Jo Ann was her baby boy was healthy and much doted upon, by his proud 53-year-old papa and his big sister, who is 21 years old.

How did you do it, and do you think maybe I could do it too? a middle-aged hospital nurse wanted to know.

Finally, Jo Ann sighed.

For nine months, that was the question she'd been longing to hear.

-- Many women today dream of having it all -- a challenging career, a satisfying personal life, a loving mate, and a baby whenever they are ready.

But there's no denying the fact that their biological clocks are ticking away.

The odds of conceiving drop by 15 to 20 percent for a woman in her early 30's and plummet to less than 50 percent when she's in her 40s.

The good news is there are a host of natural strategies every would-be mom can use today to preserve and optimize her fertility so she can conceive quickly and easily when she's ready.

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.
