Advanced Maternal Age

Advanced Maternal Age

The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology defines advanced maternal age as a pregnancy with delivery anticipated after the age of 35. Most pregnancies for women of advanced maternal age are expected to be healthy and uncomplicated, however, as age increases so do advanced maternal age pregnancy risks. These include:

  • Difficulty with Conception
  • Increased Risk of Chromosomal Anomalies
  • Blood Pressure Disorders
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Cesarean Section
