Topic Details

Older mums and pregnancy - how can you succeed?

Dr Kelly Loi

A growing number of women are delaying pregnancy until their 30s and beyond. Medical research however, has found that with increasing age, there may be increased problems with fertility, and higher risks for both mum and babe.

Planning your pregnancy gives you the advantage of being as healthy as possible before conceiving. Most women aged 35 and above will have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. However, there are some conditions that are more likely to occur if you are pregnant at aged 35 or older. Understand what the risks are, and understand what steps should be taken, before and during pregnancy, to improve your health and the health of your future children.

When Your Womb Makes Pregnancy Difficult

Dr Ann Tan

The womb is the home where the embryo grows into a fetus, and is nourished there until it is time for the fetus to be born as a baby.

However, there are many things which can make the home not as favourable to “house“ the developing baby:

  • Presence of infections
  • Abnormal growths (i.e.: polyps, fibroids, etc)
  • Having a septate uterus or double uterus
  • Damage from previous surgeries

All the above factors will make it difficult to become pregnant. Dr Tan will explain these issues and help suggest what can be done to overcome them.
