I looked on Google to see what sort of stats and issues there are, my sister had her child at 41 though not via IVF.
IVF would have been the next option had previous treatment not worked and I remember looking into it for her.
Being pregnant at 41 was no issue as she was in decent shape.
You can get IVF on the NHS in the UK and the age limit is 42, higher in other countries.

In terms of stats and I will let you peruse this article so you are aware of success rates.


A personal account I found


And this in the NYT


Of course the best place to start is with your GP and your partner to see what your options are.
Good luck.
