Pregnancy Over 40: An In-depth Guide for a Safe and Healthy Pregnancy Over 40 There are a lot of reasons why women put off having children. In most cases, they prioritized their careers over their own personal life. Others were just simply not ready for the commitment that motherhood demands. Becoming a mother is one of the most fulfilling jobs that everyone would be lucky enough to go through during their entire lifetime. The problem is that despite the fact that this is seen by some as a gift, there are also others that see it as a tiring job - fulfilling but at some point, it can take a lot out of you. The fact is that getting pregnant in your 40's is no easy task. The probability of conceiving alone is quite low in comparison to women who are in their 20's or early 30's. But this does not mean that a woman in her 40's cannot bear a child. If you are in your 40's and have found out that you are pregnant, there are a lot of things that you should prepare for. Although there are a lot of articles and other written works that say that getting pregnant in your 40's can lead to a lot of problems for both you and your child, there are still a couple of upsides to this situation. We have an entire chapter dedicated to what you can look forward to when you are having a baby during this delicate age.

But I Don t Feel Too Old to Be a Mommy

Author: Doreen Nagle
Publisher: HCI
ISBN: 1558748288
Release Date: 2002-02-07
Genre: Health & Fitness

The traditional childbearing ages for women have been 20-29. Today, however, the trend to later childrearing is significant, with the numbers of mothers over the age of 35 having grown 75 percent in the last decade, while the numbers in the traditional ages continue to decline. From celebrities to the woman next door, later childrearing is no flash-in-the-pan fad "and isn't going to subside; future trends only show women will continue to delay motherhood," according to the National Center for Health Statistics. But I Don't Feel Too Old to Be a Mommy! is the first and only book to fully address the concerns of the ever-growing but greatly ignored audience of literate, educated women who have delayed motherhood. In this comprehensive work, women who are considering parenting in their 30s, 40s and later-whether for the first time or starting over-will find all the information they need to make informed choices. Author Doreen Nagle, herself a first-time mom over 40, details the risks, rewards, rumors and resources-from making the decision to start a family, to every imaginable way to get there, to the realities of motherhood beyond 35 and 40. Issues covered include infertility, pregnancy, surrogacy, adoptions, the pros and cons of later motherhood, single parenting, and financial and career considerations. Complete with quotes from medical experts, later-in-life moms and their kids, this one-stop book will calm the doubts and fears of women considering motherhood after 35 and beyond 40 by providing supportive yet realistic information.

Before Birth

Author: Julie Currin
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
ISBN: 1449570534
Release Date: 2015-12-16
Genre: Childbirth

As a graduate of medical school and practicing pediatrician, Dr. Julie Currin was intimately aware of the amazing stages of fetal growth and development occurring during each of her three pregnancies. It wasn't until her own sister's pregnancy, however, that Currin realized how little reliable and accessible information was available to expectant parents who haven't had the benefit of complex embryology and anatomy classes. So, with her sister and her sister's rapidly growing unborn child in mind, Currin set out to translate the complex stages of growth she learned about during medical school courses into a compilation of fun, interesting, and scientifically sound information that expectant parents can understand. Now she's making Before Birth available to everyone. Organized according to the forty-week model of pregnancy, Currin uses clear language and colorful illustrations to convey the complex mystery of fetal development to audiences unfamiliar with or daunted by medical terminology. While other books focus on the changes to the mother's body, Before Birth focuses specifically on the rapid growth of the tiny being inside the mother- allowing parents to ask informed questions at prenatal visits and marvel at their child's magnificence before they ever meet.
