I think thats such a hard question, as a young mom I think doing it young is the best way... KWIM? I'll be 43 when my last one graduates high school... I know women who had their first at 43!! I think after 35 your risks increase so much that it makes it harder... but sometimes people just don't find the one they want to create life with until later. I'm going to say 45 is def too old for a pregnancy. But my aunt who was 43 when she had her first had the healthiest most uneventful pregnancy. She stayed active, ate right, and even bounced back amazingly. So what do i know!
I always felt that FOR ME, 36 was the magic number, I'm now thinking 27 is the magic number, I don't need to still be doing this pregnancy/baby thing in my 30's, I'll have a 20 year old kid when my 30's end, she can start having babies sometime after that for me
The women in my family are notorious for having babies late gg-ma was 42 when she had my grandfather my g-ma was 44 when she had my aunt, and my aunt was 43 when she had her last baby. All of them were naturally conceived. As long as the baby is conceived naturally. I really don't think there is a limit on that one other than the well us as women.
But for baby conceived well not by nature, I would have to say it really depends on the women. If she has gone through menapause then no. It's not so much the age but the body of the woman. That said my g-ma didn't go through menapause until 62 and I think that is way to old to have a baby!
