It is not uncommon for women these days to think about starting a family at a later age. Busy lives, booming careers and a variety of hobbies now mean people get married a little later in life.
A concern many women have is about getting pregnant later in life, particularly in the late 30’s. Many are aware there is a bit of a risk, but there is a lot of false information floating around.
I spoke with Dr Aruna Muralidhar, a reputed obstetrician and gynaecologist in Bangalore, who was kind enough to answer some of the commonly asked questions regarding this aspect of pregnancy.
