Do you think 39 is too old to have a child?

Nope, not at all.

My great-grandmother had her first child at 45, her second at 47. In 1913 and 1915. That kind of puts things in perspective for me, when I think about "how old is too old?"

And didn't Halle Berry just have a baby at 47? I don't see how 39 is "too old" at all.

That is a personal decision but for me it would have been too late.

For me yes. To many risks of genetic issues along with repeat csections ect.

My mom had her youngest in her late 30s. To each their own

nope as long as your dr agrees and your healthy enough to carry the baby. One of my friends was 42 when she had her youngest.

It depends on the person and if they are super healthy and in good shape. And if they are physically and enotionally up for the challenge. If it were a consideration I was having, I would go to a doctor and get a good physical and go from there. I hear women in there 40-50's having babies and they are fine. All depends on what I mentioned here I guess.  good luck.
