Things to take care of in case of a Late Pregnancy:

There is an increased chance of miscarriage so you need to be extra careful.

  • After a woman turns 30, the chances of birth defects in the baby also increase so get your ultrasounds done timely.
  • Women who are pregnant after 35 years of age are more likely to have a c-section delivery so be prepared for one.
  • Keep a strict check on your blood pressure and sugar levels to ensure a smooth pregnancy.
  • Always keep your weight under control. If you’re overweight, you would need to lose those extra kilos.
  • Eat a healthy and iron-rich diet.
  • Exercise regularly and stay active.
  • If you like a few drinks once in a while, you should have stopped drinking prior to conception.
