That said, there’s no “best age” to get pregnant. The decision to start a family should be based on many factors — including your age and your readiness to be a parent. Just because you’re over 30 or 40 doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy baby.
So, what’s the best age to have a baby?
When you are in your 20s:
This is the time when you have the highest number of good-quality eggs available and pregnancy-related risks for you and your baby are the lowest. Women are most fertile at this age and have the maximum chance of getting pregnant naturally.
When you are in your 30s:
Fertility gradually begins to decline at around age 32. After 35, that decline speeds up. The risk for miscarriages and genetic abnormalities also begins to rise after age 35. You might face more pregnancy and delivery-related Complications for you and your baby.
When you are in your 40s:
There’s a steep decline in a woman’s ability to get pregnant naturally in her 40s. Older eggs can have more chromosome problems, which increase the chances of having miscarriages or a baby with a birth defect.
Most women in their 40s can still have a healthy pregnancy and baby, but the pregnancy-related risks like pregnancy-induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, C-section delivery, premature or low birth weight babies, etc increase significantly during this time.
So, what are your fertility options over 35?
If you’re over 35 and you’ve been trying to get pregnant for more than 6 months, you might be dealing with infertility problems consult a fertility specialist immediately and if required, don’t hesitate to take the help of Assisted Reproduction Technologies to get your own biological baby or you may need healthy donor eggs to get pregnant.
