Old New Dads
Babble, a parenting site, has posted an extensive article about men having kids in their golden years. The piece does a pretty good job of exploring the personal, financial and social aspects of older men having kids via vasectomy reversal. As the father of a vasectomy reversal baby myself, I found the article fascinating.
Another new article cites some interesting statistics that I haven’t seen before, attributed to Dr. Donald R. Pohl, founder of Vasectomy Reversals of Texas…
“…as many as 90 percent of his patients are men who have re-married. About 8 percent feel they “stopped too soon” and want a larger family, and a small percentage, 1-2 percent, lost a child to illness or accident.”
