My mother had her fourth at 38 and her 5th (me) at 2 weeks shy of 44. Back then there was no genetic testing. Many women in my neighbourhood had their last babies in their 40's.
My mother told me her obstetrician never gave her gloom and doom, but told her it was her 5th child, she had delivered 4 healthy children already and she being pregnant again meant she was strong and healthy. The trend now is more and more women are becoming older moms.
