Dr. Adamson shares if he is seeing an increase of women having babies at an older age.


Yes it’s really true that women are coming in later in age to have babies and there are a lot of reasons for that of course. Fortunately with social changes, women now have better opportunities for education and for jobs and they’re taking advantage appropriately of all the socio-economic changes that have occurred in the past few decades. But one of the results of this is that women are often not feeling ready to have their family until they’re older and unfortunately the biology has not changed yet. So it’s not uncommon to see more women coming in when they’re older but sometimes her chances are less just because the egg quality is not as good as women get pass age 35 and certainly pass age 40.
