Getting pregnant late - Women advised to give birth at younger agein Living
These days, ladies get married very late. Not really that they want to, especially talking of my own country Nigeria. Men are scarce. And the scarcity is as a result of lack of jobs. You cannot bring in a woman when you cannot afford to feed yourself.
Nevertheless the situation turns out to affect our women folk negatively.
A new report which ladies might not like to hear has emerged and could be a source of worry.
Women who delay having children enter a ‘risk zone’ of problems in their early thirties, researchers say – much earlier than was previously thought.
The risk of problems such as premature and stillbirth rises by as much as 20 per cent for women aged between 30 and 34, compared with those having babies in their late twenties.
First-time mothers have previously been told they are at high risk above the age of 35, but more and more women are putting off having children until their thirties.
Professor Waldenström who led the study said: ‘For women individually, the risk is small, but for society at large there will be a significant number of “unnecessary” complications with so many women having children just after 30.
‘It would therefore be advisable to inform both women and men, even at schools, of how important age is to child birth.’|
Are women to jump into getting pregnant while unmarried because of age? I really don't think so.Last modified on
