My Mum was 45 when she gave birth to twins

My Mum was 45 in 1966, when she gave birth to identical twin girls. (I'm one of them)!

She was working as a midwife at the time, and carried to term we were 6 pound each! Dad was, wait for it, 62! They also had a 10 year old daughter.

By all accounts we were beautiful, healthy babies, complete with golden curls. Our parents had enough energy for us all, and were always there for us. Because their working days were over when we were born, they had plenty of time for us all!

Even in the teenage years, they listened to all our woes and supported us. They saw & enjoyed 10 grandchildren. Dad died 3 yrs ago at 98, and Mum 18 months later at 82. They kept good health pretty much all their lives.

Many of our friends lost their parents before we lost ours. We all adored them.

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.
