I knew a woman who had TWINS at 50 with her eggs... but she did have help (fertility drugs).

Both children were perfect.

Mothering Multiples: Breastfeeding and Caring for Twins or MoreMothering Multiples: Breastfeeding and Caring for Twins or More!
-- A mother of multiple babies may find herself wondering if she can produce enough milk, how to coordinate feedings, and if breastfeeding is even an option for her. The simple answer: Yes! In the third revised edition of Mothering Multiples, author Karen Kerkhoff Gromada offers valuable information with an emphasis on breastfeeding and attachment-style parenting. All aspects of caring for multiple babies are addressed, including possible complications of pregnancy, preparing for a multiple birth, coping with newborns who might need to spend time in a NICU, establishing a milk supply for multiple babies, adjusting as a couple, and caring for toddler multiples.

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.

    Hi, I had twins a few months after my 50th birthday. They are now 11. Looking at the world through the eyes of children is a gift when you're older. I was always a young thinking woman before children but this has only become more so since giving birth. It's now for everyone, but for me it is just wonderful!!
