A surprise pregnancy & healthy baby at 49

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, April 19, 2007 | 0 comments

I just wanted to share an encouraging story. One of my good friends is a post-partum & newborn nursery nurse, and she told me that last weekend she took care of a 49-year-old first time mother!

This woman had undergone fertility treatments, but Kelly (my friend) wasn't exactly sure when or how extensive. They eventually threw in the towel, and had a surprise pregnancy and healthy baby at age 49 (her husband was 50)!!!

Kelly also said this was one of the calmest, most serene & relaxed first-time moms she's EVER seen. As soon as my friend told me the story, I knew I HAD to post it here...I wanted to share some encouraging news!!!

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.
