Sta­tis­tics show an increase in the num­ber of women who become preg­nant for the first time at the age of 30–39 by 2.5 times. And the num­ber of first-time preg­nant women after 40 has increased by almost 50%. Indeed, in past decades, the course of the bio­log­i­cal clock was already notice­able by the age of 30, and today even at 40 it is not so obvi­ous. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, many women are won­der­ing — how dan­ger­ous is preg­nan­cy at 40?

Doc­tors say that the opti­mal age to get preg­nant and give birth is 20–24 years. But psy­cho­log­i­cal­ly, such a young girl may still not be ready for this colos­sal respon­si­bil­i­ty. More­over, the full emo­tion­al mat­u­ra­tion of a woman occurs only a decade after puber­ty. There­fore, today, young moth­ers at the age of 35 do not belong to the risk group. A woman who gives birth at 40 will also have a healthy child if she has main­tained her health, phys­i­cal fit­ness, is not bar­ren and has not had mis­car­riages.

It is impos­si­ble to com­plete­ly elim­i­nate the risks and guar­an­tee the ide­al course of preg­nan­cy, but nev­er­the­less the risks are often exag­ger­at­ed, and the right approach can com­plete­ly min­i­mize them. Most of the risks asso­ci­at­ed with the prob­lems of endometrio­sis and fibroids. To exclude an incor­rect course of preg­nan­cy, the expec­tant moth­er must pre­pare for con­cep­tion — do fit­ness, put in order phys­i­cal form.

Future organs of the crumbs are formed dur­ing the first 3 months. That is when the baby is most vul­ner­a­ble. A preg­nant woman should:

- give up smok­ing and alco­hol,

- do ther­a­peu­tic exer­cis­es,

- pro­vide your­self with prop­er nutri­tion,

- take a spe­cial com­plex of vit­a­mins.

Com­pli­ance with all these require­ments will increase your chances of a suc­cess­ful preg­nan­cy and the birth of a healthy baby sev­er­al times over. How­ev­er, do not for­get that ther­a­peu­tic exer­cis­es may have a num­ber of con­traindi­ca­tions, which should not be ignored.

Every woman who decides to get preg­nant at 40 should cor­rect­ly assess the degree of risk — this will help reduce stress and min­i­mize birth com­pli­ca­tions. After all, thoughts about dis­eases can mate­ri­al­ize — it has been proven that strong emo­tions lead to bio­chem­i­cal changes in our body. So if at forty you decide to give birth to a child for the first time, then the slight­est signs of a vio­la­tion of the devel­op­ment of preg­nan­cy require an imme­di­ate vis­it to a doc­tor.

The ben­e­fits of late preg­nan­cy are obvi­ous:

- women at this age are max­i­mal­ly pre­pared for preg­nan­cy, child­birth and rais­ing crumbs,

- rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the fair sex in adult­hood are not sub­ject to men­tal fluc­tu­a­tions (ambiva­lence) through­out the entire peri­od of preg­nan­cy, and also quite rarely face inter­nal con­flicts — and this fact has its sci­en­tif­ic con­fir­ma­tion. In addi­tion, a woman at forty is much more dis­ci­plined, and her life is order­ly and mea­sured. It is impos­si­ble not to note the mate­r­i­al fac­tor — the child of such a moth­er will be pro­vid­ed with every­thing nec­es­sary from the first days and is guar­an­teed to become a joy, not a bur­den. And such preg­nant women do not ignore doc­tor’s pre­scrip­tions, which improves the course of preg­nan­cy.
