How do you feel about women who give birth after 50 years?

I know that in Ukraine there was a case when a woman gave birth to her first child at 55 years old with the help of IVF.
Yes, it is very strange, because as her daughter grows up, the mother will grow old. Moreover, in 2 years this woman gave birth to another daughter. It is wonderful that this mother is very brave and courageous. But what will she do when she becomes hard to cope with children? Who will them care about then?

What do you think about this?

Hi @MadisonMcKeown.

Interesting question. I see why you're concerned. I think if I were 55, I would decide against having children for that reason. I'd be scared that I'd get sick and be unable to care for them adequately. However in saying that - everyone ages differently and are capable of different things at different ages. It'll be interesting to see what other parents think!

I feels it’s incredibly selfish if it’s not a natural pregnancy which if it happens would be an accident I suppose
