The oldest in our practice to have a homebirth is 52

The oldest women in our practice to have a homebirth is 52, we have had several around age 50...birth weights are excellent too, generally the baby is over 8 lbs and our mothers give birth at home at term...... our mothers are well-nourished and take high quality nutritional supplements...we encourage exercise, yoga, dance etc. during pregnancy and insist that our mothers get outside and get plenty of fresh air and sunlight....we use herbs and homeopathy as labour stimulators and for pain relief....we do encourage food and drink during labour, it is the labouring mother who becomes dehydrated in the hospital that ends up with interventions....

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.
