Although this all sounds scary, Dr. Gonzalo Garreton, a surgeon specialized in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center in Harbor City, California, says there is nothing “magic” about age 35. “In and of itself age does not make a pregnancy high risk, the associated findings to a particular pregnancy make it high risk or normal risk,” he says. In other words, the above issues are more prevalent after age 35 but every woman is different and every pregnancy is different.
