With the average age of new mothers increasing, many couples are waiting longer to start their family. Unfortunately, one of the consequence of delaying pregnancy until later in life is that age is the most important factor when it comes to conceiving.
Quite simply, women are less likely to conceive in their 40s because they don’t produce eggs with the potential to make babies as often as women do in their 20 and 30s. In fact, on average women aged 40-43 will produce just one egg a year with the ability to make a baby.
