Tips to conceive after 35 years of age

Getting pregnant after 35 years of age is becoming much more common than it used to be but women can still be concerned about the risks for mother and baby. Egg production peaks between the ages of 24-26 and so having a baby at 35 or over can be an uphill struggle as your natural fertility has already taken a dramatic decrease. Susie believes that taking hold of your life, keeping healthy emotionally and physically then you have every chance of having a happy and healthy pregnancy after the age of 35. A woman's fertility naturally decreases with age and so getting pregnant after 35 is not going to be as easy as if you were in your twenties, which is the natural peak of your fertility. However even though chances of getting pregnant after 35 are going to decrease it does not necessarily mean that it won't happen or that you will even have trouble at all. Susie says the main thing that prohibits women over the age of 35 from getting pregnant is the worry and stress of not being able to fall pregnant.
They can feel like they've past the system and their own stresses and worries can reduce the chance of them conceiving. Other things that you can do to help yourself conceive are to firstly see a health professional as soon as possible so that they can assess you. Seemingly simple, but incredibly important things like quitting smoking if you smoke or cutting out alcohol from your diet can dramatically improve your chance of conceiving. In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment can be an option for some couples, but the success rates with this treatment also decrease with age so it is worth really talking this through with your partner and the health professional. Susie's advice is: "When you are pregnant continue what you started when you were trying to conceive because your body will need the same things to create your baby. Go to regular Antenatal classes- Because of the increased risks for pregnant women over the age of 35 it is incredibly important that you attend regular antenatal care. After that women can drink 1-2 units every one or two weeks if they would like, it is uncertain what effects this might have on your baby so it is strongly unadvised to do so.


There is no denying that having a baby after 35 years of age increases the risks from conception to birth as your natural egg reserve has already started to diminish but this does not mean that you will definitely encounter these problems. The chance of miscarriage increases dramatically over the age of 35 and so in the first trimester of pregnancy it is very important that you see your health advisor regularly so they can help in any way to reduce the risk.
There is also an increased risk for pregnant women over the age of 35 to develop high-blood pressure or diabetes which can be a big problem for your baby. This all sounds scary but the more that you look after yourself, the larger the chance that your pregnancy will be as normal and healthy a pregnancy as someone in their twenties. Gedis Grudzinskas, former Emeritus Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospital, now works in private practice, helping women conceive.
We've looked into all this plus how to boost your chances of conceiving and how to keep you and your baby healthy throughout your pregnancy.
Susie says: "With anyone over 35 their age can act as a mental and physical block when they are trying to get pregnant.
Reducing the levels of stress in your life has a dramatic result on your chances of conceiving so this is the place to start. Two years ago a major study from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists warned that women aged 35 were six times more likely to have problems conceiving than those ten years younger. She met David a few months after her 40th birthday, when they were both out training for triathlons.
Baby Rhiannon is now 14 months old and Jessica says they would like to try for more children in the next year or so, but will be more laidback.‘I don’t think I would have too much problem conceiving again because I don’t drink or smoke and I’m very healthy,’ she says. He says age is definitely relevant and that to say otherwise is irresponsible, as it gives women false hope. It followed 2004 research that suggested of those having sex twice a week, 82 per cent of 35 to 39-year-olds conceived within a year - just 4 per cent fewer than those aged 27 to 34.


Their eldest, Alex, aged nine, was conceived less than six weeks after the couple started trying for a baby when Sarah was 41. Her youngest child, Edward, was conceived when she was 48; all her pregnancies were natural, without any fertility treatment. It claims that women over 30 are being panicked into believing they have fallen over a ‘fertility cliff’, when the decline is nowhere near as steep as generally assumed.'I see age as just a number. Isabella, now seven-and-a-half, was also conceived within six weeks when Sarah was 43.Then, aged 48, she decided to come off the Pill because she wanted to be able to recognise the signs of the menopause. But I’ve read somewhere that women who have children later live longer [some scientists believe the rate at which a woman’s reproductive system ages is directly linked to the speed at which the rest of her body does]. A lot of the couples were over 35 and had been trying to get pregnant for ten years.’Ultimately, she thinks it’s unhelpful for doctors to put pressure on women to have their children younger. Claudia, originally from Yorkshire but now based in Spain with her husband Javier, 30, says each time she conceived naturally and extremely quickly, with textbook pregnancies.She feels so strongly that older women face an unwarranted barrage of negativity if they want to try for families that she wrote Right Time Baby, a guide to later motherhood. While she’d hoped to have children by the time she was in her 30s, her then fiance broke up with her, primarily because he didn’t want children.She was then single for seven years until she met Matthew, 33, in 2009. When she began trying for a baby aged 40, her doctor told her it would be more difficult than for a younger woman. So she panicked when she didn’t conceive immediately.She had tests to check her egg levels, which were fine, and bought ovulation kits so she and Matthew, who works in the catering industry, could make love at her most fertile time of the month.
