52y gave birth to twins

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, March 03, 2010 | 0 comments

So, while you will not see many women in their 60's giving birth (although you may still see them adopting in more cases than you know, even if it is adopting their own grandchildren), women in their late 30's and into their mid-late 40's are definitely having babies.

In fact, I heard of a 52 year old woman recently in our area who gave birth to twins who, by the way, had no assistance with fertility treatments. So, while it is true that the odds decrease for natural pregnancy at later ages, it still happens, and who is to say anyone is too old, if her own body is telling her differently.

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.
