A woman from Yorktown Heights has become one of the country's oldest mothers. Her obstetrician, Dr. Edwin Pan, said it was the second baby in two years delivered by his 56-year-old patient, whom he declined to name.

The woman and her husband, who is also 56, have two other children, 19 and 2. Dr. Pan said the baby, who weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces and was healthy, was delivered at Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville.

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.
