Pregnancy Over 40

Friday, December 12, 2008Pregnancy Over 40

Women have long been told the older they are, the riskier pregnancy is to both mother and baby. But as the population ages and women marry (or decide to have children) later and later, more women over forty are choosing to become pregnant. Women in their forties, fifties and is some cases, even sixties are deciding to become mothers, and it's not always for a first baby.

Join us on Friday when we look at issues around pregnancy over forty; and call up with your questions or experiences.
