Pregnancy in 30s is quite common these days. The newest Centers for Disease Control information suggests that the birth rate for women in the 30 to 34 age group has increased over the last couple of years. This increase suggests that women in their 30s are giving birth at a higher rate than women in their 20s.
A close friend of mine planned her first baby when she was 33 and had a perfectly healthy and smooth pregnancy. Infact, I still remember the moment when she had called me after seeing those two pink lines on her Mankind’s PregaNews Pregnancy Test kit to share the good news and I couldn't be less excited for her. I vividly remember how our conversation in those days always revolved around the risks and complications of being pregnant in 30s and the kind of precautions she was asked to take to ensure safe and healthy pregnancy.
Well, for many women, 30s is the happy medium for motherhood. Every woman has a right to make this decision for herself. While it is believed that women are most fertile in their 20s, the success rate of pregnancies in 30s is equally good. With every passing decade, women have started focusing on their career, are becoming more independent, are believing more in being an equal couple and are self sustained. Women take their time to ensure that they are settled and are in the right frame of mind mentally and emotionally to embrace motherhood. By the time couples enter their thirties, they are better placed in terms of compatibility, finance and security. Couples are more mature to handle new responsibilities at this stage of their life.
For a first time mother, conceiving in 30s may take a little longer, depending on multiple factors like biological clock, partner’s age, overall health of the couple, diet, lifestyle and genetics to count the least.Ovulation tends to become low with increasing age due to fluctuating hormones and may hence take multiple cycles to conceive. However, fertility differs from woman to woman and a lot depends on health and fitness of her body and mind.
Being healthy before pregnancy and meeting healthcare expert at planning and preconception stage helps couples reduce risks and complications related to pregnancy and delivery.
If you are pregnant in your early 30’s, here is a checklist that will help you with a safe pregnancy and a healthy baby:
Every pregnancy is different. Every woman undergoes different kind of changes both mentally and physically. For women older than 35 and pregnant, risks of developing complications are higher as compared to women pregnant in early thirties, especially if it’s their first pregnancy..
Whether you conceive before 30’s, in early 30s or late 30s, whether it’s first pregnancy or second, it is important to know that every pregnancy is different because every body functions differently. What matters is the mental, emotional and physical readiness to embrace this turning point of life.
