More women in Singapore giving birth in their 40sCreated by:
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. An issue would be that the mother would be soon to retire when the child is approaching tertiary education, which would mean there are fewer finances to tap on. However, with financial planning, this can be duly avoided. What are your views on having children late?
