Babies right up until about age 60

You know (here is another story!) the Hoichol Indians who live in a remote area of Mexico have babies right up until about age 60.

And births over age 60 are not unheard of.
The reason is because they have not been exposed to the media, and the women never heard that their eggs get old.

That really made me think about how much we are affected simply by what we have been told, whether it is true or not -- if we believe it is true, it will be true for us.


TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:

by Ophelia Austin-Small

-- Pregnancy books on the market have one of two audiences - the teen with an unplanned pregnancy or the adult with a planned and chosen one.

Nowhere is there a book for the almost 3 million adult women facing surprise pregnancy every year.

Surprise Motherhood is aimed directly at that gap, telling the stories of Ophelia and other women who have faced unplanned pregnancy as adult, professional women.

With extensive information about options, paternity, career issues, postpartum depression, finances, and more, Surprise Motherhood is the only reference of its kind, and is sure to be an invaluable reader resource.

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.
