As women age, their chances of becoming pregnant get smaller1. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, over half of women over 40 have fertility problems.
These statistics can be very disheartening for women trying to have a baby. It is important to remember that there also many success stories where women over 40 have had healthy pregnancies.
By ensuring that you follow medical advice and take the appropriate precautions, the risks associated with having a baby later in life can mostly be successfully managed.
