Marilyn McCusker Shannon, healthy baby at 47
Marilyn M. Shannon (author of Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition) had a healthy baby at age 47 (almost 48) without using fertility drugs.

Ron and Marilyn are the parents of nine children, ages 30 to 3. Their seventh and ninth children were adopted as babies, and their eighth was born to them shortly before Marilyn's 48th birthday.

The Shannons live on a small farm in Indiana , where the family interests include raising dairy goats, sheep, and chickens, gardening, and beekeeping.

Marilyn and her husband Ron have been a Teaching Couple for the Couple to Couple League for Natural Family Planning (NFP) since 1982. Her interest in the impact of nutrition on reproductive health is an outgrowth of her educational background and her experience as an NFP instructor.


TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition 4th Edition, by Marilyn M. Shannon. Publisher: Couple to Couple League (January 1, 2009)-Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition 4th Edition
by Marilyn M. Shannon

-- How your diet affects your menstrual cycles and fertility...

Self help strategies for PMS, infertility, painful periods, pre-menopause, repeated pregnancy loss, irregular cycles, heavy bleeding, pregnancy, and male infertility.

The premise which prompted Marilyn Shannon to write the first edition of Fertility, Cycles and Nutrition in 1990 has more scientific backing than ever before: There are many cycle irregularities that can either be eliminated or alleviated simply through better nutrition or body balance.

In this completely updated and expanded edition, Shannon identifies the specific nutrition and targeted supplementation that can be used as self-care to overcome cycle problems or improve fertility.

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.
