Healthy baby boy at 47 years old

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, April 13, 2011 | 0 comments

A friend of mine is TTC [trying to conceive] and she knows a lady called June who has just given birth to her OWN child at 47. The story is written up in September Mother and Baby magazine in the UK but here is a synopsis...

June met her husband in her 40's - he is now 46. They got pregnant several times but each resulted in miscarriage. After being given the DE [donor egg] speech ....

Finally June decided it must be something to do with implantation and thought that progesterone and heparin might help. No UK clinic would help her except an older woman friendly UK RE called Dr Najia.

She got pregnant again and with the nuchal scan was given a 1 in 120 for Downs. The pregnancy went ahead well and she gave birth to a completely healthy baby boy at 47 years old! She conceived just after her 47th birthday.

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.
