Späte Mütter, späte Väter
Delayed child bearing is increasingly common in western societies for a number of reasons. These include the fact that many couples prefer to rear their children only after establishing a stable relationship and financial security. In addition, there are increasing numbers of late and second marriages. In many European countries, flats and house prices have become so high that there is a need for both partners to work which may delay the time at which they start trying for a family.Despite what you might think from the contemporary magazines (and the older mothers with small children that feature within their pages), there is a decrease in fertility (the ability to achieve a pregnancy) with advancing age. The decline is gradual over the reproductive life span of the woman; it is particularly noticeable over the age of 30 and accelerates between 35 and 40 so that fertility is almost zero by the age 45. Bear this in mind when you next see some of the high profile older mums who feature regularly in celebrity magazines – they may well have been the recipient of donor eggs from a 22 year old college student.The risk of miscarriage is also increased with age e.g. the risk of miscarriage at age 25-29 years is 10% while the risk at age 40-44 is 34%. Furthermore, advanced maternal age is also associated with an increased risk of congenital abnormality in the offspring. This book gives you detailed information about the mentioned topics an presents you some prominent “late mothers”.
