Lots of 40- and 50- something having babies

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, February 02, 2009 | 0 comments

If you've read my other posts recently, I spoke about a friend who delivers babies on a reservation and has lots of 40- and 50- something patients who definitely are not doing DE [donor egg]!

There are also women in religious communities of all kinds (Catholic, Jewish Orthodox, Hutterite) who defy the bio-clock statistics and just keep having babies until they can't anymore, cause they choose not to use contraception. They also aren't doing DE.

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.
