But, exactly how old is too old to have a baby?
Here are two extreme stories of women having babies, so late in life, they may be too old to see their babies graduate from elementary school.
Two women from India recently became the oldest mothers of all time. The oldest mom who recently had a baby at the ripe old age of get this people—-72 years of age. Her name is Omikair Panwar. The father was 75 at the time of this mom having twins—a boy and a girl. This 72-year-old mom had the twins a month early, and had a painful pregnancy---spending eight months in bed.
The couple already had two kids, and five grand kids, but wanted desperately to have a male heir.

Here’s a great question for you: How old is too old to have a baby? Doesn’t 72 seem incredibly old to have a baby? Doesn’t it seem impossible, but if medical science makes it possible, then does that make it okay?

The second oldest mom is also from India. She was 70 years old at the time of birth. Rajo Devi was inseminated with a donor egg, and with her 72-year-old husband’s sperm. Their baby was born early at seven months.
So, what do you think? How old is too old to have a baby?
There are many unanswered questions here such as, could a 70-year-old woman carry a pregnancy to full term, and how? Usually a 70-year-old woman has already gone through menopause, so how is any of this possible? And would the uterus or the woman’s body be able to handle carrying and growing a baby?
There are other women who have had babies much later in life, such as in their sixties. But having babies in your seventies is extreme! How can this be possible? Is this unethical?  Is it unwise to have a baby so late that the mom, will probably die before the child grows up? Copyright (c)2011, written by freelance author Kate Johns.
