    I love how they talk about miscarriage like it's no big deal!! He says the chance of miscarriage at 40 is double but not birth defects! Like....awe shucks! I big deal we'll try again! Miscarriage is physically and mentally very traumatic! And shouldn't be taken so lightly. My great grandmother is 86 and miscarried at 30 and still hurts from it!

    It seems like the Irish Catholic women in my family about 100 years ago had kids until they couldn't anymore - which means from about 18 to mid-late 40s. I remember one of my great grandmothers had 8 kids before she was 38, but 6 survived

    The Amy Abdu Section could lead to a real point beyond sarcastic and distasteful jokes. The cultural gap between a child and very old parents will grow ever larger and thus may result in a bigger problem of one generation understanding the other.

    Well it's better if she finds someone with a stable job who makes a good living asap. She then has more time to raise her child and yeah she won't be able to go party as much as she would like but if your child ends up not loving you, you lose either way.

    Women can have babies at many ages. However, the problem with this video is it trivialises the real difficulties of getting pregnant that can happen as you do get older. Oh and there's nothing like anecdotal evidence from a single, lucky, unkempt researcher. Also, "that's like nothing" when discussing percentage chance differences is all very well until you find you're unlucky enough to be one of those percentage points "that's like nothing."
    Yes, you can get pregnant later than you think and if you're healthy you'll probably have no real problems. I've highlighted the weasel words in bold so they're easier to spot.
    No one's saying you should rush to have children out of fertility fear and everyone is saying you should have children when you feel you're ready but don't make the error of thinking it's something you can easily do at any age to practically the same degree. Just ask those unlucky enough to find conception isn't as easy as smart mouth Adam and his research team says it is. Realising you should have paid more attention to the warnings and that that time has gone is heartbreaking.

    My mom was 39 when I was born, but she has always been a healthy woman who exercise regularly and eats well since her teenage years, so I guess that helped her a lot.

    We are thinking of having kids next year at 32. No way do I want to have them later. I thought 32 was old. I got to bond with my great great grandma and my great grandma is still alive.

    While age does make a difference, it’s not as big a deal as it’s made out to be. I know someone who just had a baby and she’s 40!

    Exactly! It’s nothing wrong with waiting to have kids! I’ll be 30 years old this year and I’m in no rush right now, although people always make me feel bad because I don’t have kids but I’m always like screw youuuu!! I don’t wanna be a baby momma! I wanna be a wife then a mom! In that order! 🙌🏾

    Fertility might not be a problem- but what about the impact and issues related to birth control? I know far too many people whose first kid had issues completely unrelated to fertility.

    What is true is that if you want to have more than one child, waiting until after 35 is a bad idea. The other issue with waiting til 35 or so to try is that you might not notice problems with your fertility, which is a problem a number of women I know have run into. The later a problem is recognized, the harder it might be to correct it in a timely way.

    unfortunately, the menopause is a thing. So there actually is a ticking clock, and you don't know when it's going to go bang. But on the bright side, until it does, you should be fine to have kids.
