Fertility Over 40
Harvard Medical School research (New York Times 3-11-2004) has found startling new evidence that the ovaries may be replenished with new eggs throughout a female's reproductive career. Dr. Roger G. Gosden states: “The ability to make more eggs would be a revolution in women's health.”
With more women waiting longer than ever before to start a family the rise in pregnancies for those in their late 30s, early 40s and even into their late 40s is being well documented.
It is unfortunate that at a time of such joy for couples, others snide with their talk of birth defects, high risk pregnancies and judgements as to whether they have ‘left it too late’. With these kinds of external influences is it any wonder that those leaving it late to start a family feel anxious and concerned.
With more health awareness than ever before, some women are more emotionally balanced and physically healthier in their 30s and 40s than they were in their 20s and so with the right support, herbs, supplements and positive encouragement it is possible for a women over 40 to conceive a health baby and carry it to full term.

Who says you're too old?
“It's not hard to understand the fears surrounding conception. Yes, the statistics show that a woman's fertility declines as she ages, but you must keep in mind that these numbers may have nothing to do with you. In fact, over the last 20 years, births to women over age 40 have increased by 50% ... and in 1991, 92,000 women in the U.S. over age 40 had babies. That number continues to rise. A lot of forty-something women don't realise how fertile they are, which may account for the fact that they are second only to women ages 18-25 in frequency of abortions. Who says your eggs are too old? Furthermore, you should know that the vast majority of babies born to women in their forties are healthy. And in healthy women, the vast majority of pregnancies are completed without a hitch.”
