I'm 48! Is it too late to try and naturally have a child? Or do I listen to medical ads/shows that say it won't happen, even with help?

At 48, I'm very afraid my time may have passed to become a parent. Ever since I was a young girl, I'd always dreamed of being a mother. A mother to a daughter that I could love and raise to be a beautiful, smart, amazing, and kind young woman. But now, decades later, I'm scared my dream may never come true. Work, life, and inconsistent relationships have pushed me up against the deadline of the bio clock/cut off point. Leaving me to sadly believe this will never come to be. Question... Is there still time to make my desire to become a mother a reality? Is there a way to have a healthy baby at this stage/age? I am open to other options other than my own pregnancy, adoption, etc. But I would like to first get advice, input from others who have given birth to their first child at 49 or 50 years of age. Is a successful pregnancy a possibility for me, at this age? Is it too late? Is it too much?! Help please. Thanks.
