What you need to know about childbirth after 35 years
A modern woman is craving for full self-realization, therefore sometimes postponing the birth of a child for the sake of creativity or the desire to make a career. Sometimes the joy of pregnancy comes in a more mature age for social or for health reasons. Nevertheless, ISIDA doctors say – over the past 15 years, the number of women who decide to become a mother after forty has doubled. In this trend, there are many advantages: a mature woman takes a closer look at her health, listens to the recommendations of doctors and seriously prepares for childbirth. Despite the "age" pregnancies in the ISIDA clinic are viewed from a positive perspective, the bearing of a child, when the “woman is over ... years old", has some peculiarities.
Pregnancy at any age leads to many positive processes in the woman body. However, a real gift of late pregnancy is rejuvenation. Late delivery reduces cholesterol, reducing the risk of vascular diseases; breastfeeding helps to get rid of problems with the lacteal glands. In addition, women who have given birth after 35 years age usually postpone the onset of menopause.
Reducing the risks
Almost every pregnancy has certain risks, but with age, some of the risks can increase. Therefore, in 35-45 years age, future mothers are more likely to suffer from toxicosis, the risk of premature birth or prolonged pregnancy. Nevertheless, the specialists of our clinic know how to reduce objectively existing risks. Attentive, caring attitude of the future mother to her body and the implementation of all the doctor's recommendations significantly reduce the risk of complications. Pregnancy in a mature age can be reason for staying in a hospital for preservation, as well as for conducting cesarean section. However, the opinion that caesarean section is the destiny of all mothers "in years" - is nothing more than a myth. If a woman is healthy, she can give birth to a baby in a natural way even in a 45 years age. Age in itself is not an indication for cesarean section.
Thanks to the achievements of modern medicine, which are always available for use by ISIDA specialists, late births are not as dangerous as they were before. Nevertheless, there are issues on which doctors pay special attention. There is, for example, the risk of developing genetic pathologies in the fetus. Therefore, doctors recommend undergoing additional tests while planning pregnancy: genetic testing of hereditary patterns, a blood test for hormones, and a spermogram for a man. These investigations will help determine the risks of possible complications associated with age, and do everything possible to eliminate them.
Be sure, experienced doctors of the ISIDA clinic will take a decent care of the health of the mother and the future child, regardless of the age at which the woman decides to give birth. In addition, remember, a pregnant woman is amazingly beautiful at whatever age! ;)
