Meet Featured After 35 Mom Theresa Landfather!

After 35 Mom Theresa Landfather delivered baby girl, Scotlyn Annika, on April 25, 2015 at age 44!

Theresa and her husband have been married for 8 years. Since Theresa already had had 2 older children they were not going to have any more, but after a couple of years they decided to try. Five months later they were pregnant with little Savannah, and Theresa delivered her at age 39. After a couple more years, they decided to try again, but did not get pregnant so she scheduled a hysterectomy due to gynecological issues. Her surgery was scheduled for May 2014, but when she went for her pre-operative visit in April, she found out she was 6 weeks pregnant. Unfortunately, they lost that baby 3 weeks later over Mother’s day weekend. After that loss, they figured Theresa’s body was just past the point of having more children, and they knew they were blessed to have 3 beautiful children, so they were happy with the way things were. However, in early September 2014 she thought she may be perimenopausal, but took a pregnancy test and it was positive!! Teresa says she was definitely on edge the whole pregnancy and was nervous before each ultrasound or test.

Theresa was induced on April 25th at 39 weeks. After a scare and chance of an emergency C-section, beautiful little Scotlyn Annika arrived on her own weighing 8 lbs 11 ozs and 20 in long. Theresa was 44 1/2 years old! 

Scotlyn joins sister Savannah (5), brother Nicolas (21) and sister Kendall (25).

Thank you, Theresa, for sharing your story!
