Pregnancy in Women Above Age 35: An Emerging Concern for the Health Sector

Author’s Affiliation: Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Lala Lajpat Rai Memorial Medical College, CCS University, Meerut, India.

 

Abstract: The development and growth of the Indian economy, along with the need and desire to work, are factors which are facilitating women to enter the workforce in large numbers. Women start working in formal workplaces anywhere between the age bracket of 21 and 26 years. The primary objective of most women in the next few years is to establish themselves in their respective fields. This very often leads to late marriages and delayed pregnancies. The latter are sometimes seen as hindrance to career advancement and are postponed until the third decade of a working woman’s life. This paper attempts to bring out the impacts of late pregnancy on the health of women and the fate of their children. The paper highlights the various pregnancy related risks to which women expose themselves by delaying pregnancy beyond 35 years. The need for raising awareness among young women about this issue and adopting women-friendly policies by workplaces has been found to be the need of the hour.

Keywords: maternal health, age, pregnancy risks, workplace.
