older patients are very reluctant to do IVF , because they feel they will not
be able to make good parents.
that because they are older, they will not be able to run around after their
kids. They worry is that by the time their kids grow up, they will have become
very old, and wont be able to provide for them.

spent a lot of time and energy thinking about this decision of whether or not

may not have as much physical energy as younger parents , but they have a lot more

importantly, they are much more mature, and are happy to let their children
find their own space in this world they dont burden their children by forcing
them to live upto their own unfulfilled dreams.
life expectancy is increasing all over the world, and they will most probably be
able to see their kids grow up and become confident adults , even if they are more
than 50 years old today!
and this will help you make better decisions !
