Natural or assisted?: I believe unassisted pregnancy into the fifth decade has been reported. It is rare now since risks of a genetic defect are so high. Assisted pregnancy (internationally) with mom having special care & donor embryo has been reported as late as ~60 if memory serves me right. Sadly, i believe that mom died a few years later.
