Women can naturally continue bearing children even beyond 50y

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, April 09, 2007 | 0 comments

"Her name was Margaret Krasiowa. She was born in Konin, Poland, in the year 1655, and died in 1763 at the age of 108 completed years. At age 94, she married her third husband, who was then 105 years old. During the 14 years they lived together, she bore him two boys and a girl."

That scenario, if true, represents probably the most fascinating documented case of childbearing at older maternal age. Before the time of Margaret Krasiowa and even in our contemporary world, childbearing beyond the maternal age of 50 years has been a source of curiosity frequently punctuated with disbelief because of its rarity. Although extremely rare, women can naturally continue bearing children even beyond the age of 50 years

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.
