Motherhood after 35yrs can be difficult

Gynecologists suggest that women should have babies between the ages of 20 to 35 years. The women who are more than the age of 35 years can have risk of missing out on motherhood. They are concerned about infertility rates among those women who delay starting a family as well as the risks faced by older mothers & their babies. Women who face a higher risk of miscarriages become difficult for them to conceive after the age of 35.

The women who put off having children until the age of 30 are defying nature. Fertility treatment success rate in women also drops in women when they grow in ages. The risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman in her 40s are between two & five times higher than in her 20s, although the absolute risks are still quite small.

Many women feel that they must delay pregnancy until their circumstances in employment allow becoming a mother. But the optimum age for childbearing is between 20 and 35. Pregnancy complications can be more common in older women. They have higher rates of induction of labour & caesarean births, which present greater risks to both mother & baby.

The key issue is that women should receive sound information about the risks of giving birth later in life. The trend towards delaying child bearing was having an impact on healthcare services. Maternity units should be staffed adequately to meet the complex demands of older mothers.

Mandish Dhanjal an Obstetricians and Gynecologist said , “If you look at older mothers over the age of 35 - in the mid 1980s about 8 % of those women who got pregnant were over 40 whereas now that figure has more than doubled to 19 %.”
