Births to women over 40 increased 50%

Examine your programming about age.

Do you honestly feel it is possible for you to get pregnant, or do you feel you are too old”? Remember, in the last 50 years, births to women over the age of 40 have increased 50 percent.

In cultures where women have not been told that their eggs are too old, they are often able to conceive in their fifties and even in their sixties. The Huichol Indians of Mexico are such a culture.

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.
