Real life. I gave birth for the first time at the age of 50. My peers already have grandchildren. It was a real miracle
Claire Mear of Norfolk was 50 years old when her daughter Amelie was born.
Four years ago, Claire and her husband lost their baby. Their daughter, who had Down's syndrome, was born dead at 40 weeks.
A lot has changed in the woman's life
To distract themselves from bitter thoughts, the couple organized a music festival and raised funds for a charity struggling parent after the loss of their children. But at 49, Claire was seriously thinking about trying again.
& ldquo; When I turned 49, things started to change. I have seen more mothers of infants conceived by IVF. And I had hope. Even then, however, many people did not believe the idea, and doctors said, “No, that's impossible”.
'However, I was directed to one place in Athens, Greece. My husband and I were checked and said: & ldquo; We think it will be fine & rdquo ;. And I dared. “
& ldquo; Most of my friends already have grandchildren & rdquo;
Claire had two donor eggs implanted. & ldquo; We lost one in the sixth week, but with little Amelie everything was fine & rdquo; & ndash; recalls. Due to her medical history and age, Claire was in a private clinic.
& ldquo; Ultrasound in the early stages is not a pleasant feeling & rdquo; & ndash; m & oacute; wi. & ldquo; But the girl was there, grew and pushed & rdquo ;. At 37 weeks, Amelie's heart rate dropped, so Claire was admitted to the hospital and had a Caesarean section.
“She was born healthy and beautiful!”
Amelie is four and Claire is m & oacute; wi that being her mom is amazing. The only drawback is the lack of parental friends her age. & ldquo; Most of my friends & oacute; łek now have grandchildren, but you get used to it & rdquo; & ndash; m & oacute; i woman. & ldquo; It's a shame Amelie doesn't have a grandfather, but she has a lot of friends who just love her & rdquo ;.
