Woman who got pregnant naturally at 47

They were desperate to start a family and couldn’t understand why, after two years of trying, Louise still wasn’t pregnant. Then in 2006, 17 years into their marriage, Louise was shocked to get pregnant naturally aged almost 42. She’d suffered an ectopic pregnancy – when the foetus develops in the Fallopian tube instead of the womb.
A 47-year-old woman from Miami surprised doctors when she conceived triplets without any fertility treatments.


The woman said she was shocked to find out she was expecting triplets, first of all because she wasn't trying to get pregnant, and secondly because she already had two grown children, a 25-year-old daughter and a 14-year-old son.
The mother, who works as a school cafeteria monitor, recalls the moment doctors gave her the unexpected news that she was having triplets and says it was a very emotional episode. Although it was an unexpected pregnancy for Sharon, the woman said she had a big family who would help her take good care of her new bundles of joy. And although she developed preeclampsia (high blood pressure) along the way, doctors said she took great care of herself during the pregnancy.


Salih Yasin, an OBGYN who specializes in high risk pregnancies at Jackson Memorial Hospital, monitored Lewis during the pregnancy and said the odds of a pregnancy like hers were one in hundreds of thousands.
