    Under the supervision of a doctor both she and the baby should be fine, but won't you be getting pretty old by the time they grow up? And then you might be too old to enjoy playing with your grandkids. Thats what my parents are looking forward to anyway :shrug:

    Many people get married after 30s, and have first child at late 30s,
    this is what normally happen in Malaysia now.
    By the time the child is 20, the parents are 50+.

    It depends on the woman. When a woman officially can't handle holding a baby she will go through menopause, but there are many 40 year old women who have had perfectly fine babies.

    Menopause occurs later as women get better nutrition and medical care and have less physically stressful lives. My mother started in her early 40s but my wife was around 48.
