Trying to get pregnant at 41

A 64-year-old woman in India gave birth to her first child after trying to get pregnant for 41 years. Sarah Briggs, a former senior manager for Watford Council and British Waterways, who is married to David, a 38-year-old accountant, and lives near Carlisle, Cumbria, says she’s had no problem at all getting pregnant in her 40s. Sarala Srivastava gave birth to a baby girl last week after years of trying to conceive with her husband.
She got pregnant via IVF and was able to carry her baby 32 weeks -- but the baby is doing well and Sarala Srivastava and her husband couldn't be happier.


It all started in the 70's but after 5 years of trying to no avail, Srivastava decided to see a doctor.
Their eldest, Alex, aged nine, was conceived less than six weeks after the couple started trying for a baby when Sarah was 41. Her youngest child, Edward, was conceived when she was 48; all her pregnancies were natural, without any fertility treatment. A lot of the couples were over 35 and had been trying to get pregnant for ten years.’Ultimately, she thinks it’s unhelpful for doctors to put pressure on women to have their children younger.


Claudia, originally from Yorkshire but now based in Spain with her husband Javier, 30, says each time she conceived naturally and extremely quickly, with textbook pregnancies.She feels so strongly that older women face an unwarranted barrage of negativity if they want to try for families that she wrote Right Time Baby, a guide to later motherhood.
When she began trying for a baby aged 40, her doctor told her it would be more difficult than for a younger woman.
