For ladies who have yet to meet the right partner, this can make the path to motherhood even longer to navigate.

Gone are the days where women were expected to get married and settle down with children in their early 20s, but┬ámany still choose to start planning for families in their late 20s and early 30s. However, if you’re in your 40s and deciding to finally ready to become a first time mother, does this make your journey more likely to end in frustration?

The short answer: Of course not! With these helpful tips, you can learn more about how to get pregnant naturally in your 40s, or at the very come closer to fulfilling your dreams of parenthood.

Age and fertility
Once women enter their 40s, there’s a change in the way their bodies are able to procreate. The quality and quantity of eggs are likely to decline as women venture further into their 40s, and while it’s not impossible to get pregnant naturally in one’s 40s, it can be very difficult.

“Natural pregnancies – when a woman is trying to get pregnant with her own egg – do occur in women in their mid 40s, but it would be nearly miraculous,” Joshua Klein, M.D, of Reproductive Medicine Associates of New York-Brooklyn, told Fox News.

Celebrity inspiration
While getting pregnant in your 40s naturally can be tricky, it’s not altogether impossible – just look at Halle Berry!

The Oscar winner, who has appeared in such films as “Catwoman” and “Gothika,” is already a mom to 5-year-old daughter Nahla, but she recently dropped the bombshell that she’s pregnant for the second time – at 46-years-old!

“I feel fantastic,” Berry told CNN after going public with the news. “This has been the biggest surprise of my life, to tell you the truth. Thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me.”

Berry, who is impacted by Type 1 diabetes, has an inspirational story that can really be heartwarming for women who are trying to get pregnant in their 40s without exploring fertility treatments.

Of course, it’s also important to consider all the options, so women who are struggling to get pregnant after several months should consult with their healthcare providers about this.

I am basically writing you back to give you all of my thanks. Ever since I finished working on the first kit (Love Me Again), my results have been excellent. All I can say is YES, YES YES!! You have been a great help to me and very patient as well. That is so important. When people start working on things that are new to them, there is so much that they don't know. Especially since working on such kits you are calling on spirits for help and you don't want to make any mistakes because you're afraid that anything could go wrong if the work is not done right (such as myself) and I know that I have questioned you a lot. I can admit that I was having some doubts at first and that I was just hoping that this relationship could be helped due to all of the negativity in the relationship. Now I know that there was help and hope for us once again. You have been the best as far as love spell is concern and responding to questions in a timely manner. And I can also tell that you as the support staff are very bright and well educated people. I just wanted to leave you with this note. But mainly you. Even though I know that there are other spell caster, you have been the one that i have really seen a good result from the casting of the spell....thanks once again {Dr Agumagu}( or or call him on +2348158847627...
