I was reading an article and this was the first few sentences:
Having diabetes and being an older mother pose
multiple health risks for both Halle Berry and her unborn child,
but the latest advances in testing and medical care will
go a long way to guard against problems, experts say.
Which got me thinking: When it is too late to carry a baby?
For some background...Halle is 46 and probably in awesome physical shape.
She had her first child when she was 41.
Clearly our bodies can do anything but is there ever a time when it should be too late?
Especially when there are potential risks to the mother and baby?
Should age even be considered when you are trying to get pregnant?
And is she giving false hope to many older women who want to become mothers?
And what about when the babies grow up and mom is much older?
Or should any of this even matter when we are considering motherhood?
I am the product of a much older parent and i think there
are a few things i might have missed out because of this.
Many questions I know but I have been thinking about all these questions
and thought it would make for a fun discussion....so please join in....
