Getting pregnant after 50. Risk or opportunity? – Science & Health

Doctor Fernando Cirurgião refers to SÁBADO that, on the one hand, “it is a good thing” that women have children, even at a later age, but emphasizes that from the age of 35, science already considers that it is a “late pregnancy”, soon with more risk.

It is true that more and more women are having children later in life, but when Carla Baía and Cláudia Raia became news because they were pregnant after 50 years old, the question arose: are there risks in a pregnancy at this age? To clarify this and other questions, the SATURDAY spoke to the gynecologist eddirector of the Obstetrics and Gynecology Service at the Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental, Fernando Cirurgião, who stresses that despite the risks, it is a good sign that women have desired children.
