Just read in the paper today Author Helen Fielding had her second baby at 48!

Life has mirrored art for Bridget Jones’ author Helen. Just like her heroine (played by Renee Zellweger), Helen became a mum in her 40s.

Helen, now 58 years old, had her son Dashiell at 43 but she was 48 years old when she gave birth to daughter Romy with her former partner, the American comedy writer Kevin Curran.

Some hope for us would be older mums, don't you think?

With extensive information about options, paternity, career issues, postpartum depression, finances, and more, Surprise Motherhood is the only reference of its kind, and is sure to be an invaluable reader resource.

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.
