I gave birth to my baby at 45

Please also keep in mind that any mother who is healthy enough to conceive/carry a pregnancy to term at an older age has a much greater likelihood of having the genes that help her live longer, particularly if it is her own egg.

Research studies have show that those women often live to over 100. By the way, I gave birth to my biological baby at age 45, my parents are in their 80's and healthy.

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.
