Giving birth after age 50 is not new

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, December 31, 2006 | 0 comments

Giving birth after age 50 is not new. My grandmother started her family of 8 children when she was 38 years old, and had two of the babies after age 50.

From all accounts, she was a wonderful nurturing mother and raised happy healthy family. She lived well into her 90's, and was self reliant until a year or so before her death. If she could do this, than why not other women.

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.
