My mom had me at 45 (36 years ago!!) and that was virtually unheard of in 1969. In fact, she got married at 41 and had all 3 of her children between 42 and 45 (my sister and brother are 16 months apart; me and my brother are 11 months apart).
She did not have any medical assistance and was warned that we would have developmental delays. We're all perfectly fine.
My mom is in excellent health as was her mother before her (who lived till 96). She's 82 and often helps me with my 10 month old. She was the primary caregiver for my niece and nephew from birth (when she was 70) until they went to school. Did I mention they're twins?
I feel blessed to have her and I do believe that having us later in life has kept her young. She also retired when I was in high school so we had the benefit of having her at home.
