Getting pregnant early 30s

New mums in their 30s also have a lot of stamina and resilience, qualities that come in handy for parenting young children. The good news is that you're very likely conceive naturally and have a healthy baby in your 30s (RCOG 2011). In your early 30s, your chances of getting pregnant are only slightly lower than in your late 20s (Khatamee and Rosenthal 2002, NCCWCH 2013:65). If you conceive when you're over 35, sadly, your chances of having a successful pregnancy are lower (Utting and Bewley 2011). If you're a mum-to-be over 35 you are also more likely to experience complications with your pregnancy.


All women are offered screening tests in pregnancy for genetic conditions, such as Down's syndrome.
If you find you need help to conceive a baby, it's also better to start in your early 30s (Bewley et al 2009, RCOG 2011, Utting and Bewley 2011).
Age aside, there are steps you can take to give yourself the best chance for a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby. If you are 35 years or under and have been having regular sex for a year, without getting pregnant, it’s time to see your GP. Join now to receive free weekly newsletters tracking your baby’s development and yours throughout your pregnancy.


Having babies earlier can reduce your earnings over your lifetime (Utting and Bewley 2011). It could be partly because doctors tend to assume older mums need more care, even if their pregnancy is going well (Joseph et al 2005, Thomas and Paranjothy 2001).
So you may find that if you become pregnant at this age or later, extra diagnostic tests may be recommended for you.
