From medical point of view, a woman is physically ready for childbirth during
20
and 25 years, this is the best period. However, emotional readiness comes much
later, in about 10 years. It`s quite natural to think about giving birth to a
child only after you enjoy your freedom quite enough, gain life experience and
reach something in life.

You know, during a period of 25-30-35 years a woman becomes
more mature, treats outward things and her future motherhood in a more sensible
way.
As a rule, her baby is always planned. And his mother is under
constant observation, hospitalized if necessary, and listens to any doctor`s
advices unconditionally. And, moreover, she reads special literature with great
wish and interest, thereby preparing to coming childbirth bona fide and
seriously.

Woman, who is preparing to give birth in mature age, shows more
responsibility also in approach for her heir`s upbringing.
And a baby
himself will receive much more from his mature mother, than from 16-18 y.o. one,
who, agree, can hardly hand down her baby something, besides her own toys.

Mature women are less inclined to develop an illusion in their
baby, that he is the most important one
, spoil and protect him too
much. Instead, childbirth will help a woman to feel unprecedented self-reliance.
And another thing, which is quite important. Such women have more chances to
find support and help in their mature partners. Moreover, mature men are more
consecutive in the process of upbringing.

Still, probably, you shouldn`t
create illusions for yourself and think that everything is so smoothly and
blameless in late childbirth. You know, as late childbirth are not so dangerous,
like it was considered earlier, all the same, there`re things, which you should
pay rapt attention to.

It`s not a secret for anyone, that after 30 a natural ageing of
human organism takes place
. It is expressed not only in our appearance
in the form of small wrinkles on face and body. All organs begin functioning
another way, including genitals. This is connected firstly with age changes of
uterus and ovary tissues, causing lowering of their functional abilities. That`s
why women suffer from lowering more often, give birth to premature or postmature
babies more often. Their delivery proceed more complicated. Because of weak
generic activity, large percent of primara women`s delivery proceed, as a rule,
not in a conservative way, but end up with Cesarean section. Doctors consider
this method to be more favourable both for a baby`s and mother`s health.

By 30 years and later all chronic diseases become
apparent
, these diseases are either inherited, or were obtained during
the whole conscious life (various gastritis, kidneys diseases etc.). You know,
women with chronic diseases of internal are already in a risk group, and here
goes age also. Moreover, bad nutrition, dirty air, bad habits, unhealthy way of
living, constant stresses - all this is drifting after a woman, like an
invisible train, taking away her health and creating possible problems for her
future babies.

Fears for a baby`s life and constant worrying also influence
nervous system of both a woman and baby rather bad. But, perhaps, the biggest
danger is in fact that after 30 years, especially closer to 40, risk of
giving birth to a baby with congenital defect increases.
These are
heart, tract, musculoskeletal system defects and often Down’s syndrome. Of
course, there`s no 100% dependence between age and pathology. Such things happen
also in case of some deviations during pregnancy and delivery. 

And still, you shouldn`t be frightened and think that it`s
risky to give birth to a baby in 35 and older.
You can and you should.
Moreover, there`s a real possibility to lower a risk of all these dangers to the
minimum. Firstly, you should receive a medical-genetic consultation. Tests,
carried out in time (before 24-26 weeks), can significantly lower the risk of
giving birth to a small human being with inborn diseases. Here chromosomal and
immunologic laboratories will help you.

Secondly, no matter how banal it may sound, it`s necessary to
lead healthy way of living
. And further - regardless of all our
scrapes, try to reduce to zero negative emotional load you received. Eat rather
well, find time for morning exercising and water procedures. Don`t ignore even
most trivial sickness. And if a woman is healthy, then her chances to
give birth to a healthy baby are not less, than in 20-30 years. 
You
just have to take into consideration all this factors long before childbirth,
when the question connected with it is just wandering in your forecast.

And if someone is still too uncertain, then we can advice to find lots
of advantages of his age. For example, think about the fact that your youth
didn`t pass among diapers and chamber-pots. And you had more interesting moments
in your life, than change of diapers. Moreover, you are less subjected to
post-natal depressions, and so on. You should remember of this more often and
don`t forget that late childbirth give you a unique possibility to turn out into
a young mother from a middle-aged woman.
