Embracing motherhood in 20s, 30s, and 40s: Here are the pros and cons

Women are increasingly working toward trying to balance their work and personal life. There are times when it becomes extremely difficult for women to prioritise education and career above marriage and pregnancy. 

Dr. Shilpa Singhal shares the pros and cons of starting a journey towards motherhood in her 20s, 30s, and 40s on one of the leading news sites Healthshots. Though the age at which women try to conceive has increased from the 20s to 30s or even 40s but be it any age, it does come with its pros and cons.

Therefore, pregnancy affects women differently depending on their age, and pregnancy-related complications are not confined to women of childbearing age. Women should consider distinct reproductive risks and obstacles as they age in order to avoid complications during their pregnancy journey.

Problems with fertility are both emotionally and medically challenging. At Birla Fertility & IVF, we focus on providing you with supportive, personalized care at every step of your journey towards becoming a parent.

Male Infertility

Male factor infertility accounts for almost 40%-50% of all infertility cases. Decreased sperm function can be the result of genetic, lifestyle, medical or environmental factors. Fortunately, most causes of male factor infertility can be easily diagnosed and treated.

We offer a comprehensive range of sperm retrieval procedures and treatments for couples with male factor infertility or sexual dysfunction.

Donor Services

We offer a comprehensive and supportive donor program to our patients who require donor sperm or donor eggs in their fertility treatments. We are partnered with reliable, government authorised banks to source quality assured donor samples which are carefully matched to you based on blood type and physical characteristics.

Fertility Preservation

Whether you have made an active decision to delay parenthood or are about to undergo medical treatments that may affect your reproductive health, we can help you explore options to preserve your fertility for the future.

Gynaecological Procedures

Some conditions that impact fertility in women such as blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, fibroids, and T-shaped uterus may be treatable with surgery. We offer a range of advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic procedures to diagnose and treat these issues.

Genetics & Diagnostics
