New Age

A metaphor for expressing transformative, creative spirits in the world in a way that opens one to the presence of God in all things. New Age is an expression of a balance between transformation and routine, between change and maturation, between the birth of what can be and what is, and between empowerment and surrender.

A vast array of philosophies, activities, belief systems and concepts have either aligned themselves or been identified with the New Age movement, including astral projection, channelling, graphology, global concerns, medical astrology mysticism, near-death experiences, New Age music, visionary art and others.

Patient discussion about New Age

Q. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy? Hi I am Deontae; I got married before 1 year. I and my wife planned to have a baby after 3 years. But now she is 25. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy? Which will help us to change our plan?

A. actually there is no best age for pregnancy (as far as i know), but some studies and research had shown that after 35 years old, a pregnancy is categorized as high risk, because there are some abnormalities and labor complication that are tend to happened (statistically) along with the increase of mother's age (such as: down syndrome, genetic disorder, post-partum bleeding, miscarriage, etc.)

so if your wife is now 25, i think you guys still have another 5-10 years to "accomplish" your family plan, hehehe...
Good luck, and stay healthy always..
