An unmarried 55-year-old woman who got pregnant through in-vitro fertilization has become what experts believe is the nation's oldest mom of quadruplets.

The three tiny girls and one boy were delivered Saturday by Caesarean section at Mary Birch Hospital for Women.

Three of the babies, born two months premature after 27 weeks gestation, were in intensive care yesterday and one was in critical condition.

At the woman's request, hospital spokeswoman Eileen Cornish refused to release her name or any information about the quads.

Publisher: Avery Trade (April 22, 2004)The Garden of Fertility: A Guide to Charting Your Fertility Signals to Prevent or Achieve Pregnancy--Naturally--and to Gauge Your Reproductive Health
by Katie Singer

-- A guide to using fertility awareness - that is, reading fertility signals in order to prevent or achieve pregnancy.

Certified fertility educator Katie Singer explains how to observe and chart fertility cycles to determine when a woman is most fertile to increase chances of conception, or to exercise birth control naturally - a method that, when followed precisely, is as effective as the Pill.

Unlike other books on fertility awareness, The Garden of Fertility also describes how to use the charts to gauge gynecological health and offers non-medical options for strengthening reproductive wellness.

This book provides all the information women never learned in sex education class, but should have.

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.
