Tamron Hall opened up about her fears of losing her unborn baby during her high-risk pregnancy at age 48.

Tamron welcomed her first child, Moses, on April 24. The first-time mom shared her fears of losing her baby.

"I was high-risk, not just because of my age, but there were other medical factors too,” the former Today host, 48, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview.

Tamron poses with her 1-month-old son with her newborn son on this week's cover of People magazine.

The new mom revealed she was pregnant in March when she was sure her fetus was safe at 32 weeks. Doctors say the optimal age for pregnancy is age 17 to 35.

After age 35, the risk of complications increase considerably. Complications include autism, Preeclampsia, premature labor, birth defects, miscarriage, etc.

Tamron tells People she initially tried fertility treatments in her 30s. But they all failed. She said it was an "eye-opening experience" entering the fertility clinic again in her late 40s, and looked around at all the other women and realized she wasn't alone.

"When I tried in my 30s, I still felt like I had some time, and the fertility clinic felt like a bright room. In my 40s I saw all the gray: The faces looked gray, the walls were gray, nothing seemed shiny and optimistic."

She said the experience made her feel "sad" and "empowered" knowing that "some of us will have to give up along the way."

"That's why I waited. And trust me - if I could've gone the whole way to delivery, I would've."

Tamron says she feared losing the baby and having to explain her loss to friends and family.

"My doctor said, 'This is your body, your health,'" she told People. "I was terrified I would lose this baby and I would have to go back and tell everyone that now it was bad news, and after this pregnancy had gone so far."

"I knew that the clock wasn't on my side, she admits.

The newborn's father is her husband Steven Greener, a 52-year-old music manager who once managed Will Smith and worked alongside Benny Medina.

    This poor child is gonna be 18 with parents in their 60's and 70's. Yikes. Congrats though.

    It would’ve been nice to actually SAY what made her high risk but ?... I was high risk too in my 30’s but GOD and faith got me through it!

    All these grandmas having babies. Seems strange to me (and kind of selfish) but at the same time I'm happy that she's happy because she's been through a lot. The baby is a cutie. Congrats Tamron!

    I hate when people try to put an age restriction on when a woman should have kids!? Not everyone wants kids when they’re young and struggling. ????? To each their own. Stay out of women’s ovaries!!?

  • KcoolMuziq

    The beautiful Janet was told by EVERY doctor at 50 that she couldn't conceive a child. Now she has a healthy baby boy. God has the last word.

    Tamron (whom was Prince's(r.i.p.) best friend up until his transitioning. Looks very happy and satisfied.

    I wonder why regular follks—-Kee Kee and ‘nem from around the way —- don’t seem to have fertility issues like celebrity women who are the same age. I know chicks having kids with no issues well into their forties. They damn sure can’t afford fertility treatments, IVF, etc

  • Coy little wink

  • GAPeach

    I became a first time mom at 39. It was a process. Lots of doctor's visits, which were super annoying, but here we are 9 years later, and he is happy and healthy. Not everyone is supposed to be a mother at 20.

    Congrats

  • T Willis

    My aunt conceived her first around 38/39 years old. She was told by every doctor that the chances were slim and then my grandma told her to take liquid geritol and she got pregnant within a week lol. I guess my great grandmother told her that there’s a baby in every bottle (of liquid geritol) lol

  • GAPeach

    I wish you the best! I don't have it in me again at this point. Plus we spoiled him so much that we can't afford another one LOL!

    Trying to convince my hubby for another one but he is on the “I am not trying to have my son running faster than me and dunking on me!” I swear ?. I told him to get fit and put the Haagen Daz DOWN ??

  • Tina Smith

    I hate reading your post, you are a negative Nancy. I would cry if I wanted to have a baby. Your eggs are viable until 45. As long as you have a period you can conceive. It's just considered high risk after 35. All these women are having children later in life and they are having healthy babies, with their own eggs. A lot of women are doing IVF because you can get more eggs from the drugs, and they can test the embryo for birth defects.

  • GAPeach

    Real talk, my grandmother had her first at 29, and she had 9!!! I have no idea where Sandra for the eggs being old as dust thing from.

  • GAPeach

    I appreciate being a mother so much more because I waited. Tell her congrats for me!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    WOW! Strong woman!

  • Ni Ni

    Ikr, especially in the hood. It was nothing to see 40 yr olds pregnant. I think these Hollywood gals might have stayed on bc too long or they're doing something else to delay pregnancy then can't conceive when they're ready. Some of their issues might be due to abortions.

  • tintin

    "After age 35, a woman's eggs are considered old as dust"
    Gosh Sandra, you didn't have to word it like that.

    And I disagree. Every woman is different. And my mama has 10 kids. Last one was at 43 and none of us have down syndrome or sickness. One of the boys is kinda sick in the head with his temperamental self but otherwise we all alright. If it's your time, it's your time.

    Many of my friends are now having babies again and they range from 38-42 and the babies are fine and pregnancy is fine too

  • T Willis

    Great info

  • GAPeach

    She had one every other year, then she helped raise a few of her grands. That woman will always the the GOAT!

  • Missy

    I definitely get it...& my body sure aint the same...i continued 2 workout & had no complications at all..thank God. But I just don’t really want him to br an only child...like I am.

  • shell

    A lot of celebrities use donor eggs or buy leftover frozen embryos. Don't be naive and based your life decisions on celebrity. Also, a lot of celebrities who had their children later in life have children with severe autism. Tommy Hilifiger and Robert Deniro, and John Travolta are a few. Sandra is correct; the optimal age for conception is 17-35. And please stop using God for an excuse to go against the laws of nature.

  • tintin

    BTW I really like Tamron. She just seems so chill and nice.

    I wish her the best on this motherhood journey.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    From Medical professionals ?

    I conceived my last 6 months after I had an Salpingo- oophorectomy(removal of ovary and fallopian tube) because of a dermoid cyst. So you dont need both ovaries or both fallopian tubes to conceive? GOD is EVERYTHING!

  • T Willis

    ?

  • Rayscoty

    I guess when they get famous. A penis can no longer get them pregnant...

    Fertility treatment must be part of the contract. Gives a dramatic celebrity story..

    Love Tamron, so glad her baby is healthy.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Congrats to her. I’ll never understand why folks want kids when life is already so fulfilling-traveling, friends, lover(s), decadent foods, full bank account, sleeping in, picking up and going, answering to no one, keeping my body...When I was in high school my friend’s dad picked him up from school. I told him he had a fly grand daddy, however it was his dad. Maybe that’s why my friend’s lips were black. ?????

  • leapyearpisces

    my hairdresser who is younger than me ( she is 38 years old) said that her doctor's put her as a high risk geriatric pregnancy. I am only mentioning this because I had NEVER heard of the term GERIATRIC pregnancy in my life!

  • T Willis

    My grandmothers last was in 1979 when she was 47 years old lol. My stepmoms last baby was 10 years ago when she was 46... they aren’t celebrities and not every child born to women over a certain age will have autism or birth defects.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Janet did freeze her eggs earlier . So i'm sure that helped with a lot of prayers. She has done an excellent metamorphosis into her MAMA days.

    I never understand why people don't want children and they grow old and alone with no one to check on them or visit them in their old age..nursing homes are full of people like you(that's where you're going with no off springs) and guess what when the workers at nursing homes or rehabilitation hospitals realize you have no visitors..they pretty much ignore you..why be bothered..you have no one to check on you or visit you...they pretty much let YOU rot away.

    I know 2 women who had babies at age 50 no IVF just the old fashioned way, both girls are very beautiful and very healthy one is about 6 years old and spoilt rotten the other is about 18 and so lovely polite well mannered intelligent n everything

  • Angelique Johnson

    I am very happy for her and her husband.
    Babies are a blessing!!

  • shell

    i'm going to argue with your fallacious post hoc thinking, but research overwhelming shows autism is predominantly in paternal and maternal parents over 40 and parents of IVF. Yes, women of all ages can have children with birth defects and chromosomes defects, but even in the middle ages scientists and doctors notice children born to later in life parents were different. That's the reason nature makes it harder for use to conceive when we get older. Just because the truth doesn't fit your convenient way of thinking doesn't make it wrong.

  • Nik

    That's a good point. Never looked at it like that. I know people who don't even want kids and are fertile as the Nile River.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    I got too selfish with me. Had my baby at 33. She is 25. I use to be ok, but got back in the Selfish stage. I'm climbing out of it Hard again now!!!

  • MrsSpice1

    Well I am happy i didnt have kids in my 20s! I wanted to wait and enjoy my early adult hood!!! 30s to me seem more appropriate to start a family After marriage of course! I just believe women are more mature and stable after 30 then in their 20s when were still figuring out life, dating, going to school, having fun and building a career! As long as u maintain a healthy lifestyle and nourish your eggs by taking prenatal multi vitamins that will help maintain your eggs staying fresh vs putting them in some freezer i think your eggs will be just fine! If God wants you to have a healthy baby You will at any age he commits you to, do NOT go by what doctors tell you alone they have been proven wrong many times! Fear STRESS worry and anxiety can a play a huge role and a risk factor in ur health regarding your fertility also genetics and the male sperm needs to be just as healthy. Age can too but your health is the main factor. your clock ticking is a termanology made up by doctors ? i think to rush women into early pregnancies!! I call bs! Ive seen many healthy women in their twenties and teens have miscarriages and unfortunate pregnancys..while older women have had very healthy pregnancys! If your over 35 and your still trying just maintain a very healthy diet, exercise and take prenatal vitamins to prepare your body! Pay attention to when you ovulate as well.

    Children place their parents in nursing homes all the time. Ignore them all the time.

    My mom was sent to a nursing home for physical rehabilitation. I was there with her every day. I left one morning to go take a shower and my mother magically managed to fall and bump her head. These cocksuckers didn't follow protocol and didn't call an ambulance. I had to call myself when I arrived. And they knew I was a f.cking lawyer.

    Point is: nothing is guaranteed.

  • leapyearpisces

    That's right do you! I had the twins when I was 26, and they will be 18 next year and honey I cannot wait! I am going to STAY on somebody's plane going all over the place. I have realized that most of us cannot wait to become adults and get away from our parents so we can be "grown" and do what we want ONLY to restrict ourselves again by becoming parents. Actually, being a parent is MORE restrictive. People have to understand, once you have kids YOUR LIFE does not belong to you anymore (if you are going to be a good parent) and it SHOULDN'T. The child needs and wants should come before yours. Not saying you have to abandon your wants and dreams, but you must attend to your child / children's needs and wants first, and I PERSONALLY think people are more equip to do that when they have LIVED and done the things that they want to do before having kids.

  • shell

    I am as pious as the next person, and I know the story of Sarah. But I know God gave me common sense.

    Kids r not born with a job 2 take care of us. Just bcas u have a child does guarantee they gonna check on you when u get sick. If u r having kids 2 be your personal care nurse u are having them for the wrong reason. Slavery is over. A lot of these old folks could have been shitty parents n now u sick n u want someone 2 take care of u.

  • The Art

    Seems kind of selfish to have a child so late in life. What happens when the kid is 20 and she's 67? It wasn't until I reached my mid-20's that I was able to fully appreciate my mother and develop a great parent/adult relationship. Now that I'm older, watching her age is scary and a bit worrisome. I wouldn't want that for my young child. But at any rate, I'm still happy for her. I pray she has a long healthy life.

  • Tina Smith

    Once you get Dementia you might have to go in a nursing home regardless of children. You have nieces and nephews. Aunties and Uncles. Some people don't have good relationship with their children and they put them in a nursing home. I would rather have my kids later in life because when I'm in my 80s, my kids will be in the 30s and 40s to take care of me.

  • T Willis

    Lmao this is exactly why I don’t have kids now. Too busy spoiling my dayum self with traveling, lovers, decadent foods, full bank accounts, and sleeping in. I told myself I would take a year to prepare myself physically and mentally for a baby, but, almost 6 months into the year and I can’t stop traveling, drinking, and smoking weed ?... but I’ll see how I feel January 2020 lol

  • MrsSpice1

    Dont rush! Trust me all information regarding getting pregnant is not factual! Doctors are going by science alone not just nature! Womans bodies are miraculous and your eggs can stay just as fresh as a 21yr old with a healthy diet!!! Enjoy being YOUNG for as long as you can..because many women whom had babies early always kind of regret not being able to experience that of which women who dont have kids early get to experience; Freedom! Thats why many of them try to live out their 20s in their 30s and 40s still tryin to club late and stay out baing n sht leavin they kids at home or for they grand parents to look after! Hence AYESHA CURRY! Shes a perfect example! I bet had she waited until ur age or early 30s she wouldnt feel like she missed out!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Lololol you sound miserable. I have a very large family and several close friends that are like family. We talk everyday and have strong relationships. If you’re having kids to try and keep you out of a nursing home, you’re birthing kids for the wrong reason. Kids put their parents in nursing homes everyday. It’s quite pathetic that you lead such an empty life that you know you’ll end up alone because folks don’t fawk with you.

  • Tina Smith

    All these rich people are having kids late, because they have the money for nannies, chefs and they get IVF treatments. For years people have had children after 40. I know two people personally who have had healthy babies at 42 and 46 and it was natural and their own eggs. IVF is only 40 years old. Because of social media infertility has become a topic, which no one has ever talked about before. Check your facts before you make any statements.

  • Topic Influencer

    Why are folks questioning this lady and her birthing choice?

  • Gloria

    Newsflash: All women don’t need to be mothers and there are many women who shouldn’t be mothers or simply don’t want to bear children. That is ok! STOP TRYING TO FORCE MOTHERHOOD ON FOLKS! I’m a nurse and I can tell you plenty of patients in nursing homes have BIG families. Children or not. Trying to scare a woman to bear children just so they can MAYBE get proper elderly care from them is just sick.

  • CardiB’sAbs

  • shell

    Quite the opposite. Babies born to women over 40 are highly publicized because they are still medically rare if done naturally. I just fear we try to live are lives vicariously through celebrities when we are only getting half of the story. Also, having children later life can also means you struggle more financially because you forgo retirement savings because you have to pay for college and paying for your declining health when you get over; plus finding work gets harder when you get 50. Children get more expensive when they get older.

  • Gloria

    Live a healthy life. Stay active. Eat well (a plant based diet or heavy fruits and veggies are the way to go ?). That will reduce your chances of needing long term care. Stay close to your loved ones (friends, nieces/nephew, cousins). Home health care is also an option if you need some assistance.

  • T Willis

    It’s not rare though. Look at the comments - look at my initial comments - these aren’t rare celebrity cases (& it’s not rare in Hollywood either), these women are seen from first person accounts like a mother, grandmother, aunt, besties over the age of 35 y/o. It’s been happening for centuries and all the medical community can say is, it’s high risk, despite the rest of us seeing these women give birth to healthy babies. I just think ppl would take the medical data more seriously if they spoke on why these women are having healthy pregnancies after 35.

  • Gloria

    Huh? No one was talking about her age stupid. Good day.

    What are you talking about? I let people live. I’m not questioning why anyone wants to be a mother and think you are reading the comments out of order.

    Congratulations Mrs. Greener...I tell everyone if I had children on my 20's my parents would had raised them...My husband and I was in college...partying and traveling...When I turned 29..I was ready. Growing up I have never heard so much bullshyt about what age a woman should have children. I listen to many 25-35 years old black women saying after 34 you are to old to have children...and most of them had their children between 14-25. I am seeing many grandmother carrying children for their daughters who are 20-30 years younger than them. Only God and your body knows when it is to late to have a child.

  • Coy little wink

    I'm headed to the store!

    Also, recent research shows most mental defects like Autism,Schizophrenia, Asperger are not cause by the age of the women's egg, but the paternal age of the male sperm which goes through mutation as a man gets older. That's why our grandparents called them old men babies.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Telling you! Some people OBSESS about having children and hang on their drs EVERY word that they STRESS themselves out and their body reacts accordingly.. Im not saying that ALL people who have ivf are not infertile BUT I believe a GOOD portion of them are able to have children without intervention if they would take care of their mind, bodies and soul???

    Congratulations Tamron....this goes to show that happiness can come at any age.

  • shell

    As someone who worked with Autistic and Aspberger children, I have to agree with the research. A majority, but not all had very older parents. A lot of research points to the increase to Autism do the the advancement of fertility where men and women who were older sought treatment through IVF. A recent California study showed half the children born through IVF had Autism.

  • Topic Influencer

    See above baby. I run away very often. And I leave bf where he is bc he is in cahoots with the teen girls (well his is a tween..12. STILL) that are making my life some days unbearable. go to Priceline and find you a local room and take your stuff and stop and get you some wine and RUN. Or go to your fam house. Or go to a gf house. Something.

    Agree 100 percent. Having children does not guarantee they will take care of you. It is a selfish reason to have children. I do not judge people who do not want kids. Look at the world we live in. Do you.

    Dont be mad. Everyone dont want kids.

  • Topic Influencer

    She is not pushing that on anyone. She didnt say you really SHOULD have a kid or that you absolutely need one. Scrolls back up. Nope. She aint say that. Now I dont agree with what was said...that you will end up in a home. My daddy ended up in one bc that was HIS wish. And its three of us. Opposite spectrum I have childless friends who are quite happy not being a mama. They are fine being an aunt, a cousin, a daughter, a friend.Hope their fam steps up for them in time of sickness. I am reading the comments just fine. But really any birthing choice to birth or not to birth is a choice.

  • Gloria

    She is implying that if you don’t have children, you will “rot in a nursing home” yes. Those were her words as a scare tactic to get another commentator to change her mind about not wanting babies. Super weird and disturbing but whatever. Not sure why you are coming at me like this when I was literally one of the first to comment saying:

    “Motherhood is a beautiful thing. Congrats to her.”

    I’m not judging anyone for wanting motherhood. I’m not judging anyone who doesn’t want motherhood. I’m not judging anyone who adopts or is a foster parent. Really, idgaf. What you eat doesn’t make me shit and what you fornicate with doesn’t make me cum ?????. Everyone just needs to be happy and mind their own bidness.

    In reality, those children grow up with problems directly related to the age of their embryo. Complications include autism, birth defects, genetic defects, etc.

    U do realize only God knows when we will depart this life and it has nothing to do with what age you have your child (unless you die in childbirth). my mother had me at 39 back in 1972. She was DEFINITELY an older mom back then. Well guess who's still on this earth thank God, my mama!!

  • ~~eb

    This is why my mother had me after already having five kids because my two sisters got pregnant at 18 and she told my bum a$$ brother that boy children can't take care of woman when she is old. However, she treated me like crap my whole life and blamed me for not being more descriptive at five about what the neighbor's son was doing to me. She can rot in her own skin for all I care.

    I'm just speaking from the perspective of the child. Having elderly parents at 20-something years old can take a toll on a young adults life. I wouldn't want to take the chance and put my child through that. That's my personal preference. I think that having children very late in life is selfish and doesn't fully take into consideration the chances of something going wrong are significantly higher.

    She said not just because of her age but their were other medical factors too so the age being one reason she was high risk and the other medical factors being another reason she was high risk. She didn't say her age wasn't a reason she was high risk ?????.

    I'm happy for Tamron, I bet she would've made Prince the Godfather.

  • Hazel

    I believe it. That's why I will encourage my daughter to freeze her eggs in her late 20s. I don't want her to feel the pressure to marry the wrong guy or sacrifice her career for children. I had mine at 32 and 35 (after trying for 5 years). I gladly left my career which required 80 hour weeks and 5 day travel to be available to my kids, but I was fortunate to have the financial security and a phenomenal husband which enabled me to do so. I want her to have kids on her schedule, and on her own terms.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You said "Age does not determine maturity." I assumed you were referring to your mom not being mature when she had you in her teens. I said "don't hate" because she had her kids at a young age. But I'll delete the comment.

  • Yoni7

    My mama had me (two weeks before she turned) at 40. I REFUSE! Grand-Sun is ENOUGH! I love my freedom to be able to move around if I have to. Specially with the world we live in now, I would let the baby damn near watch his ownself just to keep hisself safe. Folks are CRAZY!

  • Nunya Business

    I think that you're confusing the fact that you had a complication free pregnancy at almost 40 (praise God for that) with the fact that statistically it's harder for women to conceive after 35 and those that do experience a higher risk of complications. It's wonderful that you didn't experience those complications but the risks are definitely higher for women over 35.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Thank you so much...one of the hardest days of my life...I look forward to being a mom more than anything...

    Scientists are recruiting pregnant women who use marijuana to study the drug's effects on babies' brains

    Researchers are recruiting 70 pregnant women who use cannabis to examine the effects of the drug on infants' brains.

    The 'Moms + Marijuana' project at the University of Washington School of Medicine is the latest in a string of studies racing to deliver some concrete information as cannabis use increases in every group, including expectant mothers.

    They are offering $300 to women aged 21 to 34 years old, who are less than 13 weeks pregnant, to be monitored through their pregnancy.

    Signing up, they agree that their newborn will undergo MRI brain scans at six months old to be compared with brains of babies whose moms did not use cannabis, alcohol or cigarettes.

    The news of the study sparked some inflammatory responses, with staunch anti-marijuana journalist Alex Berenson comparing the study to Tuskegee, when African American men with syphilis were duped by scientists, who gave them a placebo, knowing it would harm them.

    But most in the medical community agree that, though there may be risks, it's important to conduct a study to work out what those risks are, since many cannabis dispensaries already promote their products to treat morning sickness.

    The Tuskegee comparison from Berenson - who wrote a book about his view that cannabis creates murderers - falls short in a few ways.

    Primarily, the team seeks women who are already cannabis users, rather than asking them to start using it.

    And studies suggest that won't be hard.

    Most women in the US, where cannabis is increasingly legal, believe marijuana does little to no harm to a pregnancy. And most dispensaries in Colorado, one of the first places to legalize recreational marijuana in the US, sell the drug for morning sickness.

    There is very little research on the topic to give expectant mothers guidance.

    There is some evidence that the drug could be harmful, but it is not weighty enough to draw a strong conclusion.

    There is a handful of other studies currently investigating the topic - one in Colorado funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to study marijuana's impact on breast milk, another in Colorado funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) looking at fetal brains, and one at UNC also looking at fetuses.

    But they are still in their early stages.

    For that reason, for now, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) does not recommend using the drug in pregnancy, to err on the side of caution.

    The medical community is still reeling from the thalidomide scandal, when a drug tested on and given to pregnant women turned out to cause birth defects.

    The UW researchers say that is exactly why they are conducting this research.

    'This study is targeting a very specific population of women who are using marijuana to manage their symptoms while they're pregnant,' joint lead author Natalia Kleinhans, a professor of radiology, said in a news release.

    'There's little research to back up the medical and public health advice they're getting to stay away from pot to control nausea.

    'Most medications prescribed for morning sickness have not been rigorously tested in pregnant women and appear to have side effects that are not minor.

    'Remember that thalidomide, a particularly extreme case, was given to women to reduce nausea during pregnancy.

    Out of 13 cousins only one has a baby? That is quite the opposite of us. 21 first cousins total on my mom side. Only my three youngest first cousins... all males under 30...are childless. One is the same age as my daughter (me and my youngest auntie were sporting matching baby bumps back in 1995 lol). But out of 21 of us all rest of us have kids. 27 babies between us. All those functions you named are packed and as you can imagine VERY LOUD lol. Mini fam reunion at Easter in Bama and it was a NEW NEW baby (he is 2 months and so so CUTE. LAWD) and my oldest nephew is the oldest great grand. So "kids" from 0-32 on the scene lmaoo.

  • Hazel

    I hate when people compare animals to kids, but I get your point, and I admire your attitude....if it will be, it will be. When I struggled for 5 years to conceive, I was so stressed. I probably would've gotten pregnant faster if I had simply relaxed.

    Awe.Yall gonna have a whole LOT of babies at the SAME time. WATCH. Its a slew of kids in my fam that are 22-27 (my daughter and some of my older cousins too, have kids in this group) and another baby boom happened in the last four years bc NOW we got a whole LOT of babies.

Besides, weed stays in your system for up to 6 months, if you’re a heavy wake and baker like me lol, so why would anyone knowingly subject their unborn child to that?

    Dealing with infertility is harrowing; it's only really understood by those who are/have gone through it or someone very close to them. It's a struggle that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.

    Some things that people who DON'T understand say:

    - You don't want kids anyway, mine drive me crazy! (but you still love them and they are yours).

    - No kids? Well you get to travel, save money and sleep late! (but I already did that, I'd still rather raise my own child).

    - The world is over-populated anyway! (by people who have way more children + people with fewer children not living sustainably).

    - If you relax, you would get pregnant! (even with medical issues?)

    - You can have MY kids! (don't want YOUR kids).

    - Maybe god didn't want you to be a parent! (awful)

    and our all time favorite:

    - it's OK, you can adopt! (no you can't always + a foster child is not a consolation prize for childless people).

    I'm so sorry about your loss. I'm about to be 36. I haven't lost any, but I recently had
    treatments and my eggs died right before fertilization.

    It was extremely difficult and also one of my worse days...Keep hope, love.One day, we will be moms together!

    There is a lot of shame still attached to infertility, especially in certain communities. I'm a regular person and I know soooo many women (and men, black too) who struggle, but they are quiet.

    It's likely that if you haven't heard from some people, they are keeping it to themselves in fear of being judged, or they disguise as "I don't want kids" to protect themselves. For every woman in her 40s, there are many more who can't, non-celebrities too...

    That's a first for me too, lol. I've only heard "advanced maternal age".

    Thank you.

    Thats definitely possible. I know several women who are in their late thirties, early forties with no children who genuinely want them. On the flip side, I know many who had children after 35 like me. Lord knows that while I wanted kids, I look back and it is clear that I wasn’t ready in any eay shape or form.
