In the days before birth control, it was not unusual for women to have babies any time during their 40's.....

My grandmother had her last baby at the age of 45, and I have noted that in quite a number of my ancestors..... With the men fathering children into their late 70's, and wives near 50.....

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.
