Image: Woman gives birth at 54 years-oldA Ugandan woman has given birth at the age of 54, ten years after reaching menopause.

The woman, a university lecturer, delivered a baby boy at the Women's Hospital International and Fertility Centre in Kampala on Thursday last week.

The baby boy is fondly known as Baby Precious. He weighed 3.1 kg at birth which doctors said was a normal weight. He has been breastfeeding.

I am ecstatic. I feel excited. I turned 54 the day I had him. We will have two birthdays to celebrate on the same day, said the mother, who protected her identity to safeguard her child from unnecessary stigmatization when he grows up.

-- One in six couples in America will experience reproductive problems. Julia Indichova and her husband were part of that statistic.

According to several fertility specialists Julia's high FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) level was an indication that her body was no longer producing fertilizable eggs.

Her only chance of conceiving, they said, was in-vitro-fertilization with a donor egg.

After a futile quest for a more hopeful prognosis, Julia searched through a variety of holistic alternatives and finally decided upon a personal healing regimen.

She followed it as single-mindedly , as one would follow a doctor's prescription of antibiotics. Her daughter Adira was conceived naturally, eight months later, and was born on April 29, 1994.

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.
