Pregnancy Over 40 AND 50! 50 Year Old Has BabySome people think having a baby over 40 is out of the ordinary, but how about 50? Motherhood really doesn't have an age limit. There are a number of women who actually do get pregnant with and without help at the age of 50. This story involves a women who did undergo treatments, but it does happen to some women naturally.
A couple of years on from his arrival, while most 49-year-old women expect their child-rearing days to be giving way to becoming a grandparent, Juliet is preparing to rummage under the bed for Rafe's old pram and baby clothes, ready for arrival number two.
She may not quite be in the same league as the world's oldest mum – an Indian woman was revealed at the weekend to have become mum to IVF twins at 72 – but Juliet could be about to claim the title of Edinburgh's oldest new mother.
"People ask me if I'm really happy to be 49 and pregnant and I tell them that of course I am, but if I had the choice I would be pregnant and in my thirties," she shrugs. "Unfortunately I just was not lucky enough to meet the right person until later.
"I do think I'm probably in a better position emotionally and psychologically now, but who knows? If I'd had a child in my 30s then I might well have turned out to be a bad mother."
