having a baby after 40
While it is a medical fact that the ideal age to have babies is in your twenties, the modern lifestyle of women today push us more and more to have children at a later stage.
Many have their second or third kid in their forties, and the number of women that actually have their first baby at this stage is getting higher every year. This does not mean, as in the old times was believed, that the mother and child are undoubtedly at risk.
If you are in your 40s and pregnant, or thinking about getting pregnant, the best thing to do is to visit your doctor for specialized advice.
You will need to go through certain tests to make sure you and your baby are healthy throughout the pregnancy and your doctor will need to monitor you closely and on regular basis. Fear nothing, as doctors these days have a lot of experience handling pregnancies like yours.
