    Get doctor advice before conceive.Most doctors recommending to stop giving birth at 40  if someone suffers from diabetes,heart problem and high blood pressure.

    I am in my upper 40s. I have a grown child and 2 grandchildren. I got married again a few years ago and now have a 3 year old and a 1 year old.

    I say if you are concerned then check with a doctor to be sure everything is OK then go for it!

    Unless you have medical issues, there is nothing wrong with having children later. We may have more energy when we are younger but we seem to be more relaxed in parenting as we age. If you want children and are healthy, go for it!

    its all depends on your aspects like wealth, upbringing the child in your later years, if you have now at 40, when she/he gets 20, you will be 60, so they probably want young looking dad/mom at their age, it is better to avoid if you can, if no problem you can adjust with the kids that time, they might call you grandpa/grandma also that time, so be selective.

    Is she married?  I cannot imagine having children without daily support!

    I do not think she will regret having another child.  However, as the other respondants noted, seeking medical counsel throughout the pregnancy is wise. 

    Best regards~
