Great age for babies: By all means don't give up. While risks for problems like genetic defects increase with age, that specific risk is not higher than the general risk any woman has with any pregnancy of some unexpected outcome (cleft, premi, infection) ~4%. Genetic defect risk doesn't hit 1% until you get into your 40's.
