Pregnancies After 30
By Jane! Pierce Frye
Duke University Medical Center
Pregnancy after 30 or 35 can be
safe with proper medical supervi
sion, says a Duke University
Medical Center obstetrician and
"Of course, when you get down
to it, it's more risky to have a baby
than not to have one," said Dr.
Stanley Gall, professor of
obstetrics and gynecology and
director of maternal and fetal
medicine. "But the chances of
mortality have declined
dramatically. In 1981, there were
16 maternal deaths in North
Carolina and 85,000 deliveries.
"For pregnancy at 35 or 40 ver
sus 20 or 22, the important thing is
state of health," he added. "If a
woman is healthy, she can pro
bably tolerate pregnancy well," he
Gall advises that a woman devise
a "game plan" with her physician
if she's planning a pregnancy at
age 35 or older.
Before a woman gets pregnant,
she should have a medical evalua
tion, he said. Many things need to
be done before pregnancy he add
ed, such as vaccination for Ger
man measles or getting diabetes
"Women who are overweight
and pregnant are more likely to
suffer from high blood pressure
and diabetes," he added.
The best time to reach the pro
per weight is several months before
conception, he said. Women who
are underweight also have a greater
risk of certain problems, sucha as
anemia and postpartum infection.
Gall also advises women to stop
smoking and using alcohol and
other drugs prior to conception.
Gall said that caffeine is not
harmful to the fetus under or
As a woman reaches age 35, she
has an increased risk of having a
child with Down's Syndrome,
commonly known as mongolism.
"Between the age of 30 and 34.
women have a chance of one in 643
of having a child with a
chromosomal abnormality and a
one in 290 chance of having a baby
with Down's Syndrome.
The risks increase each year until
by age 45 the risk of chromosomal
abnormality is one in 20 and of
Down's Syndrome, one in 32."
But the good news is that
Down's Syndrome, and other
chromosomal defects can be
detected through amniocentesis.
With this technique, cells drawn
from the amniotic fluid around the
fetus can be analyzed. Gall added
that amniocentesis cannot pick up
heart defects, such as cleft lip or

from four in 1.000 for mothers at
age 20 to 14 in 1,000 at age 39.
Gall suggests that a woman plan
to eat a nutritious diet, high in pro
tein, during pregnancy. She should
plan to gain 1/2 to 3/4 pound per
week for a total of approximately
25 pounds, and she should not gain
more than 39 pounds, he said.
