Hi Dr I had my first child at 31. My son is 6 years old now. I would like to try for a second child. Do you think it would be okay? How can I check and ensure I have a healthy pregnancy? Will my age be a factor in the health of the second child?
Ans: 31 seems to be an appropriate age for sure to plan the next baby. Since you are beyond 30 years of age, it would be worth while doing a basic health checkup around your hormones and basic sugar levels, vitamin D B12 and hemoglobin levels before planning the pregnancy starting folic acid supplementation. Would be appropriate. Stopping any kind of recreational drugs, smoking or alcohol and bit of lifestyle optimization like increasing proteins, fresh fruits, green vegetables, nuts, seeds and berries and the diet and starting some form of exercise would be useful. To ensure a smooth pregnancy.
Anti-mullerian hormone or AMH levels prior to planning a pregnancy will be helpful in discerning the fertility, the probability of getting pregnant and also. Appropriate or good image levels usually ensure a healthy pregnancy during pregnancy screening of the baby with a Nuchal translucency and nasal bone or level one scan bit around 12 weeks, a double marker subsequent to the scan if need be. A NIPT screening and a level 2 ultrasound usually, or level 2 ultrasound or an anomaly scan usually ensure that the fetus is more or less normal. If any other advanced investigation is needed, that too can be done during pregnancy. To ensure the the health of the baby.
