An invaluable feel-good guide to having your first baby after the ticking of the biological clock has become too loud to ignore . . .
Books on pregnancy and childbirth abound, yet a woman having her first child after the age of 30 or even 40 has special needs and concerns which are different from those of younger women. Increasing numbers of women are having their first baby after 40 and with modern technology the age at which women can have children is rising further still.
This book looks at the pros and cons of having a first child later in life, discusses how to avoid or minimise the potential problems and offers guidance on looking after yourself and your baby. And because older women considering pregnancy are more likely than younger ones to think about life after the baby, it also takes a good look at family planning.
