Late Pregnancy Risks

Late pregnancy from 38 years according to medical terminology must be very well monitored. Doctors are particularly vigilant to certain diseases that can complicate your pregnancy or have an impact on your future baby.

I will try to show you the most common risk that is associated with late pregnancy

  • The more you are older, the more you are exposed to hypertension and its complications, such as pre-eclampsia (syndrome involving high blood pressure, edema and presence of protein in the urine) or a detachment of the placenta. A hypertension is the cause of your baby having a low weight.

  • The gestational diabetes (which occurs during pregnancy and then disappears) is characterized by an excess of sugar in the blood. Its frequency increases after 40 years and giving rise too high weight of the baby. If necessary, a diet is then advised (calorie reduction with sugars).

  • The risk of prematurity is higher (multiplied by 1.7 compared to the general population) because the uterus has a poorer ability to endure pregnancy. The solution: the rest.

  • At this age too, uterine fibroids are more numerous. But in most cases, they do not disturb the course of the pregnancy.

  • The risk of trisomy 21 increases. At 25 years, it is 1 per 1250 births, 40 years from 1 to 110, and 45 years of 1 to 30. Amniocentesis, which can be achieved from the 15th week, will remove doubt.

  • There are two times more cesarean sections at this age because the uterus is less contractile and the collar and less flexible. They are perfectly controlled by the surgical team.
