A 44-year-old woman from Telsiai, western Lithuania, gave birth to her 18th child, a miracle doctors said they do not see often.

According to Lithuanian daily newspaper Lietuvos Zinios, Danute Bagociene was highly concerned over her 18th pregnancy and feared it would be difficult for her and the baby.

Nevertheless, the baby boy weighted 3.7 kilograms at birth and was heavier than Bagociene's other newborns.

Bagociene has given birth to seven sons and 11 daughters. Her oldest son Irinijus is now 28.

She said she does not plan to have any more children.

-- Infertility affects one out of six couples today.

Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort.

Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

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.
