  • I hope all is well with you and your family.

  • Personally I would feel unable to cope with a newborn at 47, but not all 47 year olds are the same. I wish you all the best with your decision.

  • It’s up to you, there’s alot of mums these days having baby’s when they are older. My aunt was 40 when she had another son :) Just talk to your doctor about the risks :)

  • I suppose only you can answer that question. Put it into perspective with your family/lifestyle. If you have a baby now, you’ll be almost 70 at their 21st birthday. Also take into consideration your health. How would you cope with a newborn at 47? Best of luck!
