Pregnancy After 35

Pregnancy after 35 carries risks that are less common before women achieve this age.

  • Fertility decreases with age
  • Chromosomal abnormalities increase with age (Down's syndrome etc.)
  • The onset of medical conditions such as diabetes and hypertension are more common

If you are considering a pregnancy and you are over 35, it would be a good idea to schedule a consultation with one of our physicians to educate you on these risks.


  • Preconception usage of folic acid
  • Preconception screening for diabetes if indicated
  • Blood pressure evaluation
  • Review of family history for genetic diseases
