IVF could make first-time mothers in their 60s a common site, Is this good or bad?

World's largest fertility conference says there will be a rise of 'grey mothers' comes after UK's oldest mother gave birth at the age of 66 following IVF. Latest figures show that, in England and Wales, babies born to women aged 50 to 54 quadrupled in a generation – from 55 in 2001 to 238 in 2016. In those over 55, there were two babies born in 2001 and 20 in 2016. There are no figures for women in their sixties, but Britain’s oldest mother, Elizabeth Adeney, gave birth aged 66 in 2009 following IVF treatment in Ukraine.

These women not only put themselves on the risk during pregnancy by increasing pregnancy complications and they also put their children at risk by traumatizing them losing their parents at young age when they still need to be looked after by their parents. This is common sense.

What does experts say about this?

Fertility psychologists warn that women using IVF to have babies in their fifties and sixties risk traumatising their young children by dying or becoming ill, as well as the serious medical complications they face by becoming pregnant so late in life.

Dr Zweifel said: ‘The drive to be a mother is so strong they don’t think about the problems their child will face until after it is born.
