Had a baby at the age of 56

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, June 13, 2009 | 2 comments

I know two women who had a baby at an older age. One women, who I'll call "Lilly" had a baby at the age of 56. She looks like a 35 year old and her daughter turn out just fine. No mental problems and the mother took no drugs. It was all natural.

Another women which I'll call "Starr" has a 6 year old healthy daughter and she was in her forties when she had her. I plan to have a baby when I’m 35. Babies have less problems when we have them at an older age.

Another woman which I will call "Classy Lady" has a 6 year old daughter. She, too was in her late forties. The girl is as smart as a whip. She, like all the other stories that I tell you, is doing real well in school. They're living normal lives.

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.

    this is so inspiring to me. Can you tell me if she was pregnant by her own eggs or donor eggs via IVF?
