His mother continued to reproduce until she was 50

An African friend of mine says that in his country (Cameroon), it is very common for women to continue to bear children way into their 40's and 50's --- naturally. His own mother continued to reproduce until she was about 50 years old. I asked my friend what did he attribute that to: older women naturally conceiving 10-15 years past the average time for US women....

He says that he attributes their excellent reproduction mainly to nutrition! Their foods are organic, not processed like ours, hardly any sugar/salt, no preservatives/additives in foods, no chemicals (i.e. like the strange chemical Nutrasweet we guzzle in the US), no guzzling pop, etc. etc.

Also, he says that their level of stress is different from ours....simple village country living....

Finally, he says that all women there know about their fertile biological markers --- a lot of American women do not know much about their reproductive systems (i.e. cervix, mucus changes, ovulation changes, etc..)

So, they know when to avoid AND to achieve pregnancies in their cycles!

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.
