Pregnancy After 30 is Risky: As women get older their eggs decrease, but they don’t disappear all at once, so it is very normal and not concerning for a woman to get pregnant at 30.
Men Can Have Healthy Children at Any Age: Men are affected by age exactly like women, a study showed that men who have children after 40 increase the risk of having children with ADHD.
You Can’t Get Pregnant If You’re Breastfeeding: Although a woman does not ovulate while breastfeeding, it is not rare for women to get pregnant while breastfeeding their child. Breastfeeding a child for a long time causes the body to get used to it, allowing the renewal of ovulation and therefore gives women the chance of getting pregnant again.
