For women at the age of 35 who are wondering if you can have a baby, the answer is ‘Yes, you can!’.
There is a success rate of pregnancy. When you are getting older, your strength before and during pregnancy will decrease. As your body is having less ovulation, the success rate of your pregnancy will even decrease. You will become infertile and you will need other methods to help you get pregnant. So, if you get pregnant after the age of 35, you should be in medical care closely!
Today, we would like to introduce ways to prepare mothers who want to have a baby at the age of 35+.
- See a doctor regularly
After realizing the risk and problems that could later happen, what important is to find prevention. It is necessary for the mother to be in medical care closely before and during pregnancy. If you are preparing for pregnancy, you should start seeing a doctor to plan your pregnancy.
If you have been trying for a baby by natural method for 6 months and still not succeed, the doctor usually suggests assisted reproductive technology such as IUI and ICSI by considering your physical readiness. If you successfully get pregnant, you should regularly see the doctor as you have more chances of having a miscarriage and an abnormal baby.
- Take care of yourself physically and mentally
To prepare yourself, especially for women over 35, you need to change your behaviors to increase your pregnancy rate as follows:
- Take enough Folic acid starting 1 month before and during pregnancy at least 4 mg. Folic acid is found in green leafy vegetables, beans, liver, etc.
- Control your normal weight range.
- Eat nutritious food.
- Stop smoking and drinking and avoid caffeine beverages.
- Exercise regularly under medical guidance.
Mental health is also important. Although there are a lot of things you need to think and worry about, if you have good mental health, it will positively affect the baby.
Apart from the age that matters, self-preparation is also important. So, if you want to have a baby, don’t forget to take good care of yourself. After this, infertility will not be a problem anymore.
