Women's fertility drops drastically after 35 but yet, in Singapore, more women are giving birth to babies past 40. This increases the risk of babies having birth deformities, though a couple of television personalities have proven this statistic wrong. Babies can be detected for Down syndrome, but there is no way to prevent it besides conceiving early.
