In brief: Risks for any pregnc

At 34 you are not too old for babies.
Many consider the rate of down syndrome births as a marker for age & childbearing.Risks are lowest in the early 20's at about 1/2000 with a gradual increase in risks that hit 1/100 at 40 & 1/12 at 50.There is a baseline risk of about 4% of an unexpected outcome with any pregnancy.The ds risk must be added as age related risk. Discuss with your doc.
