Better late than never!

Are considered that the most favorable for the birth of children age - from 18 to 30 years. But there are women who for various reasons give birth after thirty. What future mother expecting appearance of the kid in so solid, grindings of sight of doctors, age can face?

I so, one of the first questions which is asked to future mother by the doctor the obstetrician - the gynecologist concerns her age. Why? Because quite reasonably it is considered that the young organism will more successfully cope with “objective“ - pregnancy and childbirth. Eventually possibilities of our organism decrease: after 30 years - for 50%, and after 44 years - for 80%. There is it for a set of the reasons. Among them there is an increase in quantity of cycles without ovulation (especially at the age of 41 - 45 years), reduction of a susceptibility of a uterus to an oosperm, risk of emergence of myoma (a benign tumor) of a uterus and excess growth of a mucous membrane of a uterus that it will prevent fetal egg to be attached to its wall. Besides the solid age of future mother influences quality of an ovum, and future father - on quality of spermatozoa, however, in much smaller degree.

Forewarned is forearmed

After 30 years and especially closer by 40 years the level of women`s hormones gradually decreases, and the ovulation occurs not in each menstrual cycle as earlier but only when in an organism enough hormones for an ovum exit collects. Besides, ova change with age not for the better therefore the kid can be born with genetic diseases. That is why in the majority of the countries many women are more senior than 35 years on early terms of pregnancy pass special genetic inspection of amniotic waters (they are received by means of an amniotsentez - a puncture of a forward belly wall and a wall of a uterus). If the analysis shows violations, doctors advise to interrupt pregnancy.

are become “more noticeable“ With age also by different chronic diseases, for example, vegetososudisty dystonia, a hypertensive illness, diseases of kidneys (chronic pyelonephritis), obesity, deficiency of iron (anemia), diabetes. Therefore if you are more than 30 years old irrespective of the fact which childbirth is coming you (first or third), try to see a doctor as soon as possible and pass all necessary inspections.

The future mother is more senior than

, the it is more at it than chances to face a problem of late toxicosis (gestoz). Besides, by 40 years the organism of the woman begins to prepare for age reorganization - a climax when women`s hormones are produced less, and it can affect ability to take out pregnancy. Special pregnancy

it is logical to p to assume

that with age pregnancy proceeds more difficult, but it will be much easier for you to overcome problems at the correct spirit. If you treat carefully and after careful consideration the situation, to listen to a doctor`s advice and to follow them, at you everything will turn out (of course, we do not speak about situations when pregnancy is contraindicated to the woman for health reasons).

It is considered p that the first late pregnancy proceeds more difficult. However if the break between the birth of children is more than 10 - 15 years, then and to the following pregnancy it is worth belonging as well as to the first (with that only a difference that future mother, most likely, will behave more reasonably).

What it is necessary to know about the first late pregnancy? In - the first, it is very important to understand why it came late. In case all previous attempts to conceive the child were unsuccessful, there is a probability that the course of current pregnancy will be complicated by threat of interruption from - for a lack of hormones (generally progesterone). However from this situation there is exit: until, until the placenta begins to produce enough progesterone (approximately till 16 weeks), it is necessary to accept special hormonal preparations which are appointed by the doctor. However, not only the modern medicine will help to cope with one this problem. From the very beginning of pregnancy it is worth taking care of getting under supervision of the skilled doctor who will be near for all nine months and at midpoint - at the time of delivery.


So, during pregnancy for you and for your kid will attentively observe and do ultrasonography.

  • If doctors find uterus myoma, then they will watch a condition of miomatozny knots which will grow together with a uterus, and then after the delivery will be reduced and will decrease to the former sizes.
  • by means of ultrasonography can learn the place of an attachment of a placenta. If it blocks an exit from a uterus (prelying of a placenta) and you have blood allocations, you from time to time, most likely, will send for treatment in maternity hospital. By the way, quite often with increase in term of pregnancy the placenta “rises“ closer to a uterus bottom, ceases to block an exit from it, and then the problem is resolved by itself.
  • the doctor watches
  • by means of ultrasonography a state and development of the kid and a placenta. If they lag behind in development, the doctor appoints special treatment.

the Attention and care

That you did not concern

the troubles connected with late toxicosis (gestozy) in the second half of pregnancy it is very important to keep to a diet: to refuse from salty, sharp, fried, fat, smoked. Strangely enough, but this the decision simple at first sight, has crucial importance. By the way, gestoz most often appears if future mother has chronic diseases (vegetososudisty dystonia, a hypertensive illness, chronic diseases of kidneys, diabetes, heart diseases).

“First call“ of a gestoz - a big increase in weight and hypostases of legs. In time fasting days and advice which your doctor will give to you will help to cope with it. However if all taken measures do not help, besides arterial pressure increases and protein in urine appears, such state it is better to treat in office of pathology of pregnancy of maternity hospital. If you are at home and to you it became bad (especially if the head ached), it is necessary to call urgently the doctor or to call “Ambulance“.


What late toxicosis is dangerous? From a water delay in an organism walls of vessels swell, the gleam of vessels of a placenta is narrowed, and from - for it the child receives less oxygen and “food“ that, unfortunately, can affect on its health.

Final counting

At last comes long-awaited ninth month of pregnancy... The term of appearance of the kid comes nearer, and it is the most reasonable to recover in maternity hospital in advance, approximately on 38 - y to week. Why? That doctors had time to estimate your condition, health of the child and degree of a maturity of a placenta - it is possible, she already “grew old“ and badly supplies the kid with necessary nutrients.

Together with you doctors solve

when and as your kid will be born. If everything goes well, the child feels normally and you want to give birth independently, most likely, to you will allow it to make. By the way, there is also other way to give rise in the natural way - the programmed childbirth. In certain time future mother begins to be trained for the child`s birth, entering hormones (estrogen, prostaglandins). Thereof childbirth begins.

At the time of delivery the attention to future mother and the kid does not weaken, doctors watch their state by means of the cardiomonitor (sensors which fix reductions of a uterus and heartbeat of a fruit are put on a stomach). If there are some complications, for example weak patrimonial activity, the kid will be born by operation of Cesarean section.

If natural childbirth presents to

big risk, and it happens for many reasons: age of future mother (of 35 years), pregnancy complications (gestoz - late toxicosis, prelying of a placenta), pelvic prelying of the kid, future mother train for planned operation of Cesarean section. However, if your first child was born by Cesarean section about three years ago, but now to it there are no indications, you can try to cope. However, most often doctors prefer not to risk and at once send future mother for operation.
