Hi ladies, I'm wondering if our age can affect weather babies are born early or if they are overdue? I have read a lot of conflicting information about if it is the first time the mum is giving birth the baby has more of a chance of being born after its due date? I have also heard that the age of the mother can affect weather it comes early or late & that if the mother is over 30 the baby has a higher chance of being born early or premature? Does anyone know if there is any truth to either of these? Can first borns and the mothers age affect if the baby is born early or late? Or does it all just come down to the individual and every situation is different?
