According to a new study, as you age, your chances of giving birth to a larger baby increase. According to the study, younger mothers (under 20 years) have an increased risk of small-for-gestational-age babies, whereas older mothers (40 years and older) have an increased risk of large-for-gestational-age babies. Researchers found that neither sociodemographic or lifestyle-related issues could fully explain why the babies were small or large in all cases, leaving age as the possible deciding factor. The reason this study holds continued relevance is because the age at which women are having babies is steadily increasing; at least here in America it is. According to a 2010 study by the Pew Research Center, the amount of women over the age of 35 years, who are having babies is increasing at a fairly significant rate.
