Is It Safe For Women Over The Age Of 45 To Have Twins?
While many are anticipating the news with excitement, some are dubious about the safety of twin pregnancies in women past 30. Women who carried twins at age 45 or older were “largely healthy at baseline, with low incidences of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes,” according to Dr. Nathan Fox of MFM Associates, who conducted the study.
An analysis of twin pregnancy outcomes in women 45 years or older was published in the National Library of Medicine. They concluded that twin pregnancies “were linked with high rates of cesarean delivery, preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes, but overall positive outcomes in a cohort of women who were predominantly healthy and who were at least 45 years old when they delivered.”
