Numerous women 45 to 50's having babies

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, January 18, 2009 | 0 comments

Someone I know worked as a physician delivering babies for a Native American community at their reservation hospital. She said that they had numerous women between ages 45 to early 50's coming in to have babies, and that no one even raised an eyebrow because it wasn't like they were unusual (except in terms of some additional health problems, but not in terms of fertility).

I can assure you that this population is not doing egg donation! And they really didn't offer reproductive endocrinology services either. If a woman could afford to go outside the system for that, then she probably wouldn't be living on a reservation.

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.
