    Default Is it worth the risk?

    Not me (im only 31) but just after opinions. Someone im very close to is 44. She has a 4 month old concieved naturally and is 100% healthy. She has 2 other children from previous marriage. I dont judge whatsoever and am happy to see her happy but i do worry. She plans to try for another early next year...so she will be 45. I worry about the risks for her and baby. Do you think its worth the risks? Or is it me just being over protective?

    Health risks. I thought they were well known and proven. Re - disability, birth complications etc

    Absolutely worth the risks. A much wanted baby is worth it to me. Our boys were born at 42yo and 37yo. Both perfectly healthy.

    I am aware of the risks, but not sure which ones you were specifically talking about.

    I guess she would be aware of them too and has decided that the benefits outweigh the risks. At 45, she might not even conceive.

    b
    I'm not quite sure what you mean by birth complications? And disability? Do you mean the higher risk of down syndrome?

    I was told the older u get the more risks of complications during labour and yes things like increased downs risk. She had an amnio with her baby son as her doc was very concerned...
