Meghan will celebrate her 37th birthday on August 4, but every year after age 35 increases her risk for an unhealthy pregnancy.
Every female baby is born with about 1 million eggs in her ovaries. The expiration date for those eggs is around age 35-40. The eggs begin to decrease in both quantity and quality after age 35.
Not all pregnant women over the age of 35 are at risk for birth defects due to the poor quality of her eggs. Doctors suggest taking precautions to lower your risk if you are over age 35.
Via WebMD — “As the saying goes: Age ain’t nothing but a number. But when it comes to getting pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy, it can matter. Rest assured, most healthy women who get pregnant after age 35 and even into their 40s have healthy babies. That doesn’t mean, though, that you shouldn’t think about smart steps you can take to maximize your health and your baby’s health during pregnancy.”
The following are tips to increase your chances of having a healthy baby.
