Answer by  Rose (6804)

Yes, it is very possible to have a healthy baby at the age of 42. Most concerns at this point and time are for the mother, as labor and pregnancy is very hard on the body. Follow your doctors instructions and make sure you take all of your vitamins and appointments.

Absolutely. However, pregnancies after the age of 35 are at higher risk for birth defects. Your doctor will want to do additional screenings for these as the pregnancy progresses.
