Fertility adviser Juliet Le Page, of Edinburgh, had her daughter Julia Kitty Rose by caesarean section last week, a sister to her son Rafe who was born in 2006.
Like most childless women approaching 50, Juliet Le Page thought she was too old to become a mother. She had always concentrated on her career and, as she entered her late forties, had almost given up hope.
But after having her second child last week, Mrs Le Page officially became the oldest woman in Scotland to give birth – aged 50 and one day.
I'm absolutely thrilled and tremendously happy, she said as she cradled tiny Julia Kitty Rose, who had been born following a Caesarean section.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
What to Do When the Doctor Says It's Endometriosis: Everything You Need to Know to Stop the Pain and Heal Your Fertility
by Thomas L Lyons, Cheryl Kimball
-- Endometriosis can disrupt women's lives. It is responsible for chronic, sometimes crippling pain, hundreds of thousands of missed work hours, and in its most extreme cases, infertility.
There is hope! Thomas L. Lyons, M.D., whose philosophy is to "treat the patient, not the disease," has developed leading edge surgical techniques to address endometriosis.
Dr. Lyons demystifies this puzzling disease, covering issues from fertility to dietary concerns, alternative treatments to surgical options but the main focus is on the key issue of pain management for this potentially debilitating disease.
