What are the risks of having a baby if you're 35 or older?

Dr. Michael Traub
Fertility Medicine 19 years experience
None Specifically: Many women think 35 is a magical age for pregnancy risks but really it is not. Certainly as women get older there are higher risks of miscarriage, genetic abnormalities such as down's syndrome, and higher risks of high blood pressure, diabetes, and growth problem s in the baby. But these risks increase with each year of age and there is no specific age cutoff.

A 34-year-old female asked:

How soon can your cycle return after having a baby?

1 doctor answer2 doctors weighed in
Dr. David Finke
Obstetrics and Gynecology 15 years experience
30-100 days: It depends on whether or not the mother is breastfeeding, which can suppress ovulation and periods. In the absence of breastfeeding, periods usually return sooner. If a new mother breastfeeds exclusively, periods may not return for months. One important thing to remember is that you can still get pregnant before your first period after a delivery...Ovulation occurs first.
