British regulations provide for the age limit for a lady who wants to undergo IVF at the expense of the Ministry of He alth at 39 years old. In most private clinics in the UK, this age has been raised to 50.
One of London's leading IVF clinics has announced that it plans to increase the age limit of its clients in the near future and begin actively serving women over 55. Today, the clinic is already seeing two women aged 58 who want to give birth in first time. One of these women went through a series of failed IVFs. She is married but has never had children.
The clinic also believes that the age limit for new mothers needs to be raised, as modern women live much longer than their ancestors. Experts predict that the current generation of babies born in Western countries will be able to claim a life of up to 100 years. So having a baby at 58 doesn't seem like a reckless move at all.
