Pregnancy After 35

The saying ďmy clock is tickingĒ isnít heard too often these days as the pregnancy rate for women over 35 has nearly doubled. Most women from age 35 to over 40 have healthy pregnancies but the risks increase gradually as women get older.

Women over 35 years old for instance have about a 25% chance of a miscarriage

As well, they have a higher rate of c-section delivery, high blood pressure and diabetes. The chances of having a child born with Down syndrome also heavily increases for mothers over 35 years old. This is partly due to the fact that an older womanís eggs have been exposed to more x-rays, and infections than a younger womanís eggs.

To help ensure a healthy pregnancy over the age of 35 be sure to get a proper amount of exercise before, and during pregnancy, make sure to follow a healthy diet and ensure that youíre getting optimal prenatal care.
