Description

Increasing numbers of women are having their first baby after forty - and with modern technology the age at which women can have children is rising further still. Although books on pregnancy and childbirth abound, a woman having her first child after the age of thirty or even forty has special needs and concerns which are different from those of younger women. This book looks at the pros and cons of having a first child later in life, discusses how to avoid or minimise the potential problems and offers guidance on looking after yourself and your baby. And because older women considering pregnancy are more likely than younger ones to think about life after the baby, it also takes a good look at family planning.show more
