Woman gives birth to first child at 50 following years of infertility

Published

Congratulations are in order for a woman identified as Susie Troxler as she’s welcomed a child for the first time at the age of 50 after years of battling infertility.

Susie, a psychologist in High Point, North Carolina, gave birth to their daughter, Lily Antonia Troxler, on Sept. 29, 2021, after over 10 years of trying to get pregnant.

She and her husband, Tony Troxler, 61, will celebrate their first Thanksgiving this year as parents.

The Troxlers underwent several rounds of IVF, but after not being able to produce a viable embryo, they turned to egg donation.

Susie Troxler underwent the first embryo transfer in late 2019, but it did not take. Several months later, in spring 2020, the coronavirus pandemic emerged in the United States and put their plans for a family on hold for nearly one year due to pandemic restrictions.

Earlier in 2021, the Troxlers decided to try their last viable embryo, a frozen embryo, which they considered to be their last chance.

Several weeks later, they learned Susie was pregnant.

“I don’t even have words for it,” she said of her reaction to the pregnancy.

“It was amazing and surreal,” Tony Troxler said of learning he would be a first-time dad.
