I know personally one mother who gave birth at 46.
Another good friend of mine gave birth at 45 (nearing 46).
I had babies at 40 and 43.
My midwife told me she delivered a 48 year old and my OB said she delivered a 47 year old. (Those don't really count as knowing personally, though.)
Oh, also my mom had her youngest at 41.

Ready: Why Women Are Embracing The New Later Motherhood
In 2006, one in every twelve women giving birth for the first time in the US was 35 or older, while in 1970 it was just one in one hundred. Add in the many contemporary later adoptive moms and you’ve got a substantial portion of the population starting families after 35!
