Lowering Pregnancy Complications After the Age of Thirty

Aug 17, 2007
You have heard; the older you get, the more at risk you are of potential complications throughout the different stages of your pregnancy. Fertility and age are two factors closely associated, although women younger than age 20 may face infertility as well.

However, disregarding your age, it is the way in which you care for yourself during pregnancy that may determine your health and the health of your baby. If you are on the edge or in your 30's, keep in mind a few considerations for a healthy pregnancy.

First, never take fertility drugs without your doctor's advice. It is well known that these kind of drugs increase the incidence of multiple births, and you will not want to have twins or triplets if this is your first maternity experience at a later time in your life.

Having twins naturally is just part of your chromosomes and biological inheritance, but when it is the result of infertility drugs, more than problems caring for multiple babies, is your health which is at higher risk.

Visiting your doctor to discuss before you conceive is always a good idea, since a qualified obstetrician can determine possible complications that you can experience due to your age, or as the result of infections, disease or a specific health condition.

An early visit to the doctor's office for a prenatal check up is an opportunity to treat whatever disorder that put your pregnancy at risk. In addition, you can receive advice that all women wanting to have healthy babies should observe.

Lowering risks of pregnancy complications also involves changes in your lifestyle from the moment when conception occurs, or even before. Quit smoking and avoid alcohol and recreational drugs are just a few of the actions that you can take towards a risk-free pregnancy.

If you are not a fitness enthusiast, begin exercising regularly for limbering joints and toning your muscles. Moderate exercise will always be good during the different stages of your pregnancy and will serve as a pain reliever for aches that occur as part of the signs and symptoms of your pregnancy.

Your gynecologist can advise and even help you to design the most adequate exercising routine in your particular case. Avoidance of caffeine is very important since it is associated with the increasing risk of miscarriage.

The intake of folic acid and prenatal vitamins will help you with fertility problems after the age of 30, reducing health risks for your baby, and complications that you may face due to your age.

Eat well, including with your meals a dietary supplement recommended by your doctor or a dietitian. A pregnancy diet must include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat dairy, and protein rich foods.

If you keep a healthy life and follow your doctor's orders, there is no reason to prevent you from having a happy pregnancy and delivery.
