Yes and no. In principle, Law 14/2006 does not state anything about a maximum age to become a mother. However, there is a consensus among assisted reproduction professionals in Spain not to accept women over 49 years of age due to the risks involved in such a pregnancy for the mother and the future baby. However, nowadays there are a few clinics that accept women up to 53 years of age if they are in good health.
Is there a maximum age to undergo fertility treatment in a clinic?
