Patient discussion about aged

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..

(5) Correlatively, "the strife of earth and world" is also something that I think is singularly important in understanding the aesthetic experience of antiques--namely, that their "age," their historicality, is not an abstraction merely thought about them (an intellectual identification or classification of their epoch, of the time and place of their origin and function) but is a quality sensuously experienced in them, embodied in indicators of agedness on the object (wear, patina, etc.) that the object has lived through time, "lived past" its time and "come down" in its material remains to us.
