Biological clock of a woman is the notion which determines the ability of her organism to produce offspring. During the last several decades this clock started ticking at the age of thirty, so women tried to conceive before. In the course of time the situation has changed to the better. The latest research data show that the number of women conceived at the age of 30-39 increased by 2.5 times, and at the age of 40 by 50%.

Specialists believe, the high time to conceive is the age of 20-24 years old. But at this age very small percentage of women is ready to take the responsibility for upbringing of a child. Emotional maturity comes 10 years later than sexual one, hence the best time for delivering a baby is about 35 years old, and nowadays the woman pregnant at this age is no more considered to be in a risk group.

From scientists` perspective, a woman leading a healthy way of life and having a good state of health till her 40th can deliver a healthy child, if she is fertile and has no previous miscarriages.

Naturally, pregnancy in the 40th carries some risk, but it is not so high as many women believe. The main point is to plan the pregnancy and keep fit. It is necessary to be followed by a gynaecologist after 35, if you still consider pregnancy, as the risk of endometriosis and fibromatosis grows approaching 40th.  

As it is widely known, during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, the internal organs are formed, so it is important for the woman to keep to a healthy diet, refuse from alcohol and smoking, take vitamins and some exercises prescribed by the doctor. Under these conditions, the chances of normal course of pregnancy are possibly high even at the age of 40.

Emotional disposition is also an important aspect to take into consideration. A woman should avoid thinking about her pregnancy as something dangerous and causing diseases. Otherwise, these diseases can occur, as strong emotions and feelings cause definite biochemical reactions. If any problems arise, a woman should inform her doctor immediately. 

Unfortunately, not every woman can conceive at this age, so surrogacy and often oocyte donation give the real opportunity for the family to get the desirable baby, if the biological clock or health issues have already become the obstacles for that.
