I had 2 babies in my late 30's...one of those by c-section...so obviously I don't hold to the obstetrical adage of 30's being elderly. It's not really nonsense though. There really is more risk in pregnancies of those age mid-30 and older. Higher risk of gestational diabetes, of hypertension, of pre-eclampsia, of premature labor/birth, of uterine rupture, etc. I just chose to accept that risk. I just like to see women who've had c-sections wait a little longer to heal completely before embarking on another pregnancy. It really takes a year to heal completely from the surgery. If not...then there is more risk. Risk doesn't equal definite consequence...just increases the probability. It's math.
