Late fertility is associated with longer lives

The University researchers also are studying the age at which the women had children to determine whether late fertility is associated with longer lives.

Studies in fruit flies had shown that the life span doubled for both males and females that had been grown for many generations from the last laid eggs.

In the Utah Population Database, they are testing whether the brothers and sisters of women who had their last child after age 46 have a greater chance of living past age 90.

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.
