Delivered her 2nd child when she was almost 47

"Eat a healthy diet and guard your rest for the first three years," was the sage advice that Leslie Ann Ostyn followed after the caesarean delivery of her second child, when she was almost 47.

Though recovery was more difficult compared to how she felt after the vaginal birth of her first child, she found, "I was quicker to listen to my own body and knew I would and could take it easy being a new mother. I had come to accept that a baby will change your lifestyle and that is okay."

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
