This week the news came out that Actress Jennifer Aniston, 44 years old, would be pregnant with her first child. But at 44? Yea! nowadays what we have most is technology available and just like her, several women can get pregnant late at 36.38.40 and even after 50… they are the new ages to be a mother, although in ancient times it was considered early pregnancy , nowadays many women end up having their first experience with motherhood around that age.
Did Jennifer Aniston have any treatment? Was her pregnancy natural? These are questions that will remain in the air. We have many examples of pregnancy after the age of 40, one of them is the journalist Silvia Popovic, who is now the mother of Ana Popovic, who is 15 years old, but she discovered the desire to be a mother when she met her current husband, Ana’s father. Silvia confirmed who underwent fertility treatment with a famous doctor from São Paulo. Solange Couto surprised many people when she announced that she was pregnant at the age of 54!Yes, she married a boy 25 years younger and said it was a natural pregnancy. Solange Couto was already the mother of 2 adults, 37 and 20 years old. Delight to start again after so long! She gave birth in 2011 to Benjamin, who is now 2 years old. Among so many examples, there is also the example of Cláudia Mauro who, at the age of 41 and 20, married, gave birth to her twin children. She does not confirm that she underwent fertility treatment, but I believe that due to the age factor and also because they are twins, she is very “suspicious”.
Marcia Goldschmidt who gave birth to the twins at age 51 , she was already the mother of a 17 year old teenager and started all over again and in a double dose! She said she had undergone treatment to stimulate ovulation, and probably did so with a human reproduction specialist back in Portugal who currently resides.
Can pregnancy after 40 or pregnancy after 50 years have any risk?
According to doctors, the ideal age for having children is 21 to 35 years old , at this stage the eggs are healthy, and after that age, each year the eggs will “age”. Over time the chance of becoming pregnant decreases and the risks increase. Down syndrome, hypertension, gestational diabetes are among these contraindications to late pregnancy and egg aging. However, it is worth mentioning that if your health is up to date and there are physical conditions for it, then it is worth it and go for it!
Human reproduction clinics are there for that and nowadays the risks of pregnancy at 40, pregnancy at 50 and pregnancy at 30 are practically the same. Of course, it becomes more difficult to get pregnant in a natural way, but like everything in this life it is not impossible. At this stage, you have to be cautious with treatments and medications used, a specialist in human reproduction can assist in this beautiful journey. You always have to think hard and sit down to talk to a doctor and depending on the treatment chosen as IVF ( in vitro fertilization ) multiple babies can be generated as twins and triplets. Are you prepared for this? In my experience, “late” moms have a lot more patience with children, and of course in addition to having better financial stability than at 20.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
