Pregnancy after 40 isn't impossible.

Getting pregnant after 40 is tough.

It's not as easy to get pregnant once you hit that age, compared to if you were in your 30s or 40s, and the risks only become more severe from there. You're more likely to experience miscarriages, placenta praevia, high blood pressure, or gestational diabetes.

That being said, this doesn't apply to every woman over the age of 40, nor should it scare you if you're already pregnant. Plenty of women have had successful pregnancies over the age, and we're here to share them with you to put your mind at ease.
