Not unusual to have moms in their late 40's & early 50's

I also have a friend who worked with Native Americans delivering their babies, and she said that it was not at all unusual to have labouring mothers in their late 40's and early 50's.

Obviously there were sometimes health issues like gestational diabetes or hypertension, but none of the medical staff even raised an eyebrow at the ages of the mothers -- it just wasn't considered unusual at all. No one talked about what a "miracle" it was because it was commonplace!

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.
