Course Overview

It is becoming increasingly common for women to delay pregnancy until they are in their mid-30s or older. In 2010 statistics for births in England and Wales indicated that 20% of all births were to women over 35, while in 2012 the average age was 29.8 demonstrating a marked yet steady increase from 2000 onwards.

While plenty of older mothers deliver children without issue, birth injuries are not restricted to issues experienced during or after labour and can include conditions or difficulties which develop during pregnancy, for which the age of the mother can be a determining factor.

This course will offer clinical negligence practitioners with an overview of the general risk factors affecting both younger and older mothers alike. This course will also discuss the health issues, lifestyle choices and conditions which can develop during, and impact upon, pregnancy.

This course will consider the following:

  • General Risk Factors

  • Medication During Pregnancy - Prescribed/Over-the-counter and alternative remedies
