POST PARTUM DEPRESSION NOT MORE LIKELY OVER 40

Pregnancy Over 40, Not Related To Post Partum Depression

A number of articles claim older mothers have more problems than younger ones, but I find there are plenty of publications that say just the opposite.
 This article for instance says that older mothers don't have a higher rise of post partum depression. Read more:

Women who have their first baby at an older age aren't at any greater risk of postpartum depression

than their younger counterparts, according to an Australian study of more than 500 first-time mothers.

Researchers led by Catherine McMahon at Macquarie University in Australia found that women aged 37 or older were no more likely to get postpartum depression than younger women, regardless of whether they conceived naturally or had infertility treatment.

"Older mothers are frequently discussed in the media. There are a lot of myths, and limited empirical data," McMahon, a psychology professor, said in an email.

There has been speculation, for instance, that older mothers might have a tougher time adjusting to motherhood after being in the workforce for a long time, or have more trouble dealing with the lifestyle changes that a baby brings.

"There is no research evidence to support these speculations,"

IS FOLIC ACID ASSOCIATED WITH MULTIPLE BIRTHS?

I have read and written quite a bit about Folic acid and how it can help prevent birth defects and it has even been associated with miscarriage prevention.  However, there may be some evidence that folic acid could also be associated with twin or multiple births.  Read more:

The scientists studied the cases of 2,569 women who told the Swedish Medical Birth Registry they
had used folic acid supplements.
The rate of twin births among these women was 2.8 per cent - almost twice that in the general population, where 1.5 per cent of births were twins.
Dr Kallen calculated that, if 30 per cent of 100,000 women in Sweden took folic acid supplements, there would be 225 extra pairs of twins.
These 450 babies would often be premature, have low birth weight and at higher risk of cerebral palsy.

At most, only four or five spina bifida cases would be avoided as a result of the supplements.
Dr Kallen is not sure how folic acid might increase the chances of multiple births.

But his report - published today in the magazine New Scientist and the journal Twin Research - says it is possible the vitamin somehow increases the probability of multiple ovulation or implantation of more than one egg.
Sir John Grimley Evans of Oxford University, who chaired a committee set up by the government to investigate whether folic acid should be added to flour, said it was important that any risks from extra folic acid were identified.
He has informed the Health Department of the Swedish report.

WHAT TO BABIES HEAR IN THE WOMB?

Much has been written about communicating with your baby while they are still in the womb, but you may wonder what they can actually hear.  Babies can start to hear as early as 20 weeks.  This article explains how babies perceive sound and noise:

Nature does a pretty good job of programming or presenting the necessary kinds of stimulation that a

fetus should get at the appropriate times during development," says William Fifer, a developmental psychobiologist at Columbia University. In fact, experts worry that sticking speakers or headphones up to your abdomen could actually disrupt your baby's sleep patterns or the natural order of growth.
If there's any benefit to spending time talking to your baby or letting your favorite music filter naturally through the uterine wall, it's as much for the parents as for the baby, they say. "I think most of the purpose of talking to your baby is to give people a chance to sort of attach, to get used to the fact that this new creature is going to be a big part of your life," says Fifer.  Your baby's hearing is intact by the third trimester, when sonograms show that a fetus will actually turn its head to respond to a sound. But studies have shown that your unborn child can hear sounds as early as 20 weeks and will be startled by loud noises at about 25 weeks. Very loud sounds can cause changes in your baby's heart rate and movements, and sometimes even cause them to empty their bladders.
Instead of the womb being the quiet place scientists once assumed, it is actually awash in sounds, particularly the whooshing of your blood and digestive system, the thumping of your heart and your voice, which sounds louder than it would transmitted through the air since it reverberates through the bones and fluids in your body.  Noises from outside your body are more muffled but they also make it through surprisingly clearly, says Robert Abrams, a fetal physiologist in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at University of Florida. Low frequency sounds, such as those above middle C, tend to be more audible than higher frequency ones. Men's voices, for instance, come through clearer than women's, and music also is easily recognizable.
It appears the fetus can even hear specific speech patterns and intonations, although probably not recognize words themselves, Fifer says. Some studies have shown that babies after birth will recognize -- and be comforted by -- a story read repeatedly to them while in the womb or even by particular songs, like the theme from a television show watched regularly during pregnancy.

WOMAN HAS BABY AT 50 NATURALLY AND MORE STORIES

Pregnancy Over 40 AND 50!  50 Year Old Has Baby

Some people think having a baby over 40 is out of the ordinary, but how about 50? Motherhood really doesn't have an age limit.  There are a number of women who actually do get pregnant with and without help at the age of 50.  This story involves a women who did undergo treatments, but it does happen to some women naturally.

A couple of years on from his arrival, while most 49-year-old women expect their child-rearing days

to be giving way to becoming a grandparent, Juliet is preparing to rummage under the bed for Rafe's old pram and baby clothes, ready for arrival number two.

She may not quite be in the same league as the world's oldest mum – an Indian woman was revealed at the weekend to have become mum to IVF twins at 72 – but Juliet could be about to claim the title of Edinburgh's oldest new mother.

"People ask me if I'm really happy to be 49 and pregnant and I tell them that of course I am, but if I had the choice I would be pregnant and in my thirties," she shrugs. "Unfortunately I just was not lucky enough to meet the right person until later.

"I do think I'm probably in a better position emotionally and psychologically now, but who knows? If I'd had a child in my 30s then I might well have turned out to be a bad mother."
