There’s no denying your odds of getting pregnant are far lower now than they were just a few years ago. After 45, experts say, it’s almost impossible to get pregnant using your own eggs. At the same time. Many 40-plus women do get pregnant. Some using fertility treatments and some not. And there may be benefits to waiting to have children. For both you and your child. Pregnancy at any age has advantages and disadvantages. I checked in with fertility specialists, financial consultants, relationship gurus, and 40-something moms to get a realistic picture of what it’s like to have a child in your 40s. Because the risk of genetic problems increase with age. Experts routinely recommend that women in their 40s have detailed fetal screenings such as cell-free fetal DNA blood testing. Advanced ultrasound. Amniocentesis. Or chorionic villus sampling. To give yourself the best chance for a normal pregnancy and a healthy baby. Consider taking a few important steps before trying to conceive. If you’re in your early 40s. Your healthcare provider will likely refer you to a fertility specialist.
