The risk of diabetes
Under 30s is considered to be best for pregnancy. In such cases as the age increases, some changes in women’s body also increase some complications. Due to problems like diabetes and high blood pressure in pregnancy over 35, the risk is high. These conditions can affect your health as well as affect pregnancy and delivery. The risk of miscarriage is higher in older women. Also, the complications of gestational pregnancy such as gastroenteritis, i.e., falling down too much, pre-eclampsia, i.e. problems caused by high blood pressure and premature birth, are also higher in older age.
Needing more care
It is not necessary that you have to face such difficulties with increasing age. Many times, women also enjoy normal process even when they are older. Because every woman’s body and pregnancy are different, some women may need additional care. Do not ignore the doctor’s advice all the time.
Even around the age of 45, there is a whole possibility that you give birth to a healthy baby but at the age of becoming a mother, there is also the risk of having some genetic abnormalities in the baby. These abnormalities include Down syndrome or rare chromosomal conditions such as Edwards Syndrome or Poutouse Syndrome. All women, regardless of their age, are asked to do screening tests for chromosomal abnormalities. Your age is also taken into account when estimating the risk of having a problem in the child through the outcome of the investigation. If there is any abnormality in the child through this test, the doctor warns you about this, so that you can make a decision about it.
The condition of the child at the time of delivery can be such, in which normal delivery is difficult. This is especially so when you are older and you are becoming a mother for the first time. In such cases, caesarean operations are recommended by doctors. According to a study, the probability of having a Caesarean operation of women between 25 and 29 years is more than 1.8 times compared to women between the ages of 15 and 24. On the other hand, it may be four times more likely in women 30 to 40 years old. In some research, it has been found that fatal distances are more common among women who become mothers in older age, especially in women who become mothers for over 40 years of age. This is also one of the reasons that in this age group there are more Caesarean operations.
