Babies born to mothers aged 35 and older had a 40% lower risk of having at least one defect known as major congenital malformation compared with babies of younger mothers, U.S. researchers found. Older women were less likely than younger women to have babies with brain, kidney and abdominal wall abnormalities, but the rate of heart defects was the same for both groups. The study will be presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine meeting.
Older mothers are less likely to have babies with certain birth deformities
