The birth rate for women aged younger today is experiencing a decline. In contrast, the number of deliveries made women aged over 40 years has increased. From 2008 to 2009, the average birth rate of women aged 40-44 years performed experiencing increasing by 3 percent to 10.1 births of 1,000 women. This figure is the highest number of reports ever since 1967, if you see the old lady. John looked at data collected from 53,000 women.

  1. The biggest downside to putting off pregnancy until your 40s is significant: It's harder to get pregnant the longer you wait. The principle reason: a woman's egg supply decreases significantly as she ages and any eggs that remain are more likely to have chromosomal problems that raise the risk for miscarriage and birth defects.
