Nowadays women become mothers for the first time after 30 more often. Carrier, wish to get as many pleasures from life as one can and fashion lead to the fact that childbirth is postponed for later time. There’s nothing bad in a woman’s wish to build her life the way she wants. But how late childbirth affects mother’s and baby’s health?
There’s a myth saying about dangerous childbirth after 30. In fact, ovary age changes that reduce a chance of conception, usually happen after 40. At the age of 30 tissues elasticity can be reduced.
That’s why frequency of breaches and colpoceles while childbirth increases. However, this happens not always. Childbirth at 30 today is not late childbirth. Modern women of this age are young, healthy and zippy. A term “age limit, late childbirth” should be deposed to 40 years.
You should pass all “traditional” checkups and tests. This concerns all women that are preparing to become mothers. In older age – after 30 – you will also need to visit a medical geneticist before pregnancy. And after 35 you will definitely pass a water test that helps revealing a list of hereditary diseases.
“Aged” pregnant women also should be constantly observed by therapeutist. The matter is that with age we accumulate usual, non- gynaecological problems, which can prevent normal course of pregnancy and childbirth. For example, heightened or lowered pressure, alimentary canal problems. Doctor will tell you about measures to take to have a healthy pregnancy without complications.
The matter is that there is an optimum age for all organs’ work, including genitals. Its limits are individual for each person and are determined genetically. During a period of 30-40 years different people’s calendar age combines with biological one differently.
For example, if your propitious age is 18-38 years, then your chances to conceive easily and give birth to a baby calmly will be equally high both at 20 and 36 years. And at 18 and 40 there can appear some problems, connected with age condition.
We repeat again, every woman has her own favorable age. For someone late childbirth will be at 35, and for another one – at 45. However, while competent preparation and pregnancy running you can avoid many problems.
Pregnancy is an excess of female hormones. And all women blossom after it, if their pregnancy was desired and safe. We need to mention also that pregnancy is even more wishful for “late moms”.
