If you are fit and healthy then the sky is the limit. Personally for me 40 was my cut off point, but I know lots of women 42, 45 and having there first babies. The risk of abnormalities obviously increase with age, it is also harder to conceive and the risk of miscarriage is much greater in women over 35.

I had my last baby at 38 nearly 39.

I think really it is down to personal preference.

Well the older you are the more risks. I don't think you're too old until you're in your 50's honestly. There have been women who have given birth in their 60's! So I would not have one after 45.
