Pregnancy After 35

We view pregnancy as an enhanced state of health; however, women of advanced maternal age do have some increased risks, such as:

  • Genetically abnormal pregnancies
  • Pregnancy loss
  • Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, including preeclampsia
  • Multiple gestations
  • Placental abnormalities
  • Gestational diabetes mellitus
  • Preterm birth
  • Cesarean delivery

You may experience more difficulty becoming pregnant at this age and may be more likely to carry multiples.
