Pregnancy after 35 is not as risky as we thought!
We're all familiar with the idea that there are inherent, unique risks when having a baby. A new study found that women who had their last child when they were 33 or older lived longer than those who had their last child by 29. It doesn’t necessarily mean one causes the other—it’s possible that being healthy enough to get pregnant later also causes longevity—but it’s encouraging news for those who waited until our late 30s to have children. I had my last baby at 40 and that pregnancy was easier than the one at age 25!
