Learn from the author's experience how you can have a perfectly healthy pregnancy at the age of your choice.
So, maybe, you're having those moments when you feel like...you're not too sure about having a kid early on, or you'd rather wait for the perfect time. Let me tell you: it's okay. It is perfectly okay to have a baby late, especially if you keep your health in check.
Sure, at times, there are moments of frustration but during those times, ask yourself this: would you really have wanted to have a baby at say, 22? 25? Look back on your life and what you were doing then. Would you have been ready to give up the fun, or slow down, or just change your lifestyle right away?
Not everyone is ready to have a child right away in their 20s - or after getting married. That's seriously okay. In fact, I believe that it's better to have a child late because then, you'll have enough time to carve a career for yourself, make friends, meet people, and most importantly, explore and get to know yourself. Because when you know yourself, you won't get to project your frustrations on your kid - and you'll have a happy, healthy relationship because of that.
In this book you will find:
It has 2 stars because of the science, but the delivery was too slow and deliberate.
Not an enjoyable listen and nothing that can't be found on forums the first day you find out you're pregnant.
Far too many sweeping assertions on financial and mental wellbeing
This book was informative about the potentials and statistics of what negative things could happen when getting pregnant late in life, which are things I mostly already knew. When I read the title to this book I had hoped that the author would spend more time offering insights on the benefits rather than the potential risks of late pregnancy. I appreciate the insight from the author that wisdom is power and that knowing potential risks can help a woman better prepare for potential realities of their situation, however I actually felt myself cringing and feeling even more fearful of late pregnancy as the book went on. I could see how some of the knowledge in this book could empower some women conceiving late in life, it just didn't quite do that for me at this point in time. Much love.
