Women who conceive after the age of 35 have higher chances of coping with miscarriage at the same time the foetus is also exposed to the risk of birth defects. Therefore, such pregnancies come under ‘High Risk Pregnancies’ category.
If you want to avoid all the above mentioned risks, you must plan your pregnancy in your 20’s as this is the most fertile phase in the life of women. Although, by taking right precautions most of the women are able to give birth to healthy babies even in their 30’s. At the same time keeping the risks in mind many women choose to plan a baby when their age is between 25 to 30 years.

Lifestyle for Getting Pregnant

If you are planning a baby it is very important to follow a healthy lifestyle. You must follow a healthy routine like eating nutritious food on time, exercising regularly, getting adequate sleep and staying away from stress and tension. It is very important to consult an obstetrician and take folic acid supplements while you are planning for a baby.
