Perth, modern lifestyles are busy making a lot of childless couples delay. However, if delayed too long, one day his son will be burdened with a variety of health problems and the responsibility for caring for elderly parents who are starting.
An obstetrician at King Edward Memorial Hospital (kemh) in Perth Australia, Dr Barry Walters even said that the trend of delaying pregnancy is selfish. Whatever the reason, have children too old at age benefits only the couple themselves.
In women especially, the older the age at pregnancy then the risk is higher. Both women themselves nor the fetus will be more susceptible to a variety of problems ranging from excess blood sugar, high blood pressure up.
“The older age of women during pregnancy, the more likely to face a variety of medical problems,” said Dr. Walters is quoted from Ninemsn.
This comment was delivered Dr. Walters considering lately more and more women and infertile couples are delaying pregnancy in general. Not only the age factor, sometimes couples do not take into account other factors that interfere with pregnancy, including obesity.
Dr. Walter suggests, women should begin to limit pregnancy since the age of 37 years.If still want to get pregnant at an older age than that, it must be preceded by a medical examination and diet programs for weight control.
As an obstetrician, he is also less supportive of IVF which allows the women to get pregnant at any age as long as it has an egg cell. According to this technology only further increase the tendency to delay a child.
In addition to medical problems, Dr. Walters also warned of other risks to be borne by the children due to her parents’ decision to postpone pregnancy. When growing up, these children bear a heavier burden than their peers because they have to take care of elderly parents.
