On today’s episode, we visit with Dr. Jessica Parrott, Maternal-Fetal Medicine physician with HCA Midwest Health, about pregnancy after age 35. We discuss the risk factors women should consider when getting pregnant at advanced maternal age and how the age 35 was determined as the cutoff. Dr. Parrott discusses the shift in the average age that women are having babies, genetic testing options, and risk factors to both the woman and her baby.
