On a personal level, I know for a fact my great grandmother gave birth to my grandfather when she was 43 years old.

That was back in the day when IVF [InVitro fertilization] wasn't done.

Even if IVF had been available back then, my grandmother would not have had the money to pay for it.

Also, as I stated in a different thread, my friend recently conceived her child naturally.

She gave birth when she was just shy of 44 years old.

The Joy of Later Motherhood:Your Natural Path to Healthy Babies Even in Your 40s
by Bettina Gordon-Wayne

-- The much-needed antidote to all the negative hype surrounding motherhood at advanced maternal age (which is 35+).

Written by seasoned journalist Bettina Gordon-Wayne—herself a first-time mom at 44 and the third generation of women in her family who did not get the memo that conceiving a baby after 40 is dangerous, if not outright impossible.

It is written from the perspective of the women who actually achieved what millions of women are striving for: naturally conceiving a healthy baby after 35 and, especially, after 40.

Maybe you are worried or are upset. Maybe you doubt that motherhood will ever happen for you. We get it. We have been there. With our stories, we want to lovingly see you through this journey as much as we can.

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.
