How Old is Too Old for One Night Stands? | Tell My Story
So, how old is too old to have a baby?
British women have decided...
British women believe would-be mothers should stop trying for a baby when they hit 44, according to a new survey – in the same week as Janet Jackson announced she is to be a mum at 49.
The reasons they gave included: it’s ‘unfair on the child to have old parents’; increased health complications; and the fact that, apparently, it’s ‘unnatural’.
The poll of 2019 women was conducted by the Private Pregnancy UK Show, which is calling for the Government to do more about educating women about ‘leaving it too late’. The research was conducted with the intention of kicking off a debate on age limits for medical intervention and assisted fertility. But it also called for greater fertility awareness for adult women, and for sex education to include information on fertility options.
‘There isn’t enough education available to women, many of whom still believe they can go on forever,’ said Dr Amin Gorgy, fertility consultant and IVF specialist at the Fertility and Gynaecology Academy.
Why older mothers rock – and why having a baby after 40 actually isn’t that big a deal
The numbers of women over 40 have doubled in the past twenty years – this is down to careers, the cost of childcare and homes, failure to meet The One any sooner and advances in fertility treatments.
But – as we are repeatedly told – a woman’s fertility potential declines rapidly after the age of 35 and drops even faster after the age of 40. ‘The ideal age for women to become pregnant is in their twenties and early thirties,’ said Dr Gorgy.
