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.
