WASHINGTON — This story started as a personal journey for me. At age 45, I asked my ob-gyn what the chances were that I could become pregnant naturally.
“Not good,” she answered. “The risks to you and the newborn are high. Your eggs are just too old.”
“But why am I seeing so many healthy babies born to so many of my peers?” I asked. It seemed like every neighborhood had another pregnant mom in her 40’s.
