Women have had babies in their late forties for ages!!!

Our grand-mothers started having babies in their teens, and stopped around 40 - 50 years old.

A woman around here just had her 17th baby, and she is 45 years old. She had like six children beyond turning 38 years old.

My friend got pregnant at 41 years old, her first child after TTC [trying to conceive] for 20 years! Yes, 20 years!

We think, with those RE’s [reproductive endocrinologist] statistics, that woman was not really likely to get pregnant. She is now 16 weeks.

I have no doubt, and never had, that getting pregnant after 40 is very, very possible for most ladies.

Each superfood is described in detail, accompanied by easy and delicious recipes.

This accessible guide presents persuasive arguments, based on sound science, for the pivotal role of superfoods in promoting nutritional excellence, health and well-being, beauty enhancement, sustainable agriculture, and the transformation of diet, lifestyle, and planet.

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.
