The Perinatal Effects of Delayed Childbearing
TLDR
Older maternal age is associated with relatively higher risks of perinatal mortality/morbidity, although the absolute rate of such outcomes is low.
Pregnancy at 40 years Old and Above: Obstetrical, Fetal, and Neonatal Outcomes. Is Age an Independent Risk Factor for Those Complications?
TLDR
A pregnancy after 40 years old is worth considering today as far as the risk factors are controlled and understand by the patient and the obstetrician.

TLDR
Maternal age over 40 years is an independent risk factor for adverse pregnancy outcomes, particularly for the mother, and pregnant women of any parity, with singleton or twin pregnancies, or with assisted reproductive technology pregnancies are considered at risk.
Perinatal Outcomes of Women Aged 50 Years and Above.
TLDR
Pregnancy at the maternal age of 50 years and older is independently associated with higher rates of GDM, cesarean delivery, and lower Apgar scores at 5 minutes; however, most perinatal complications were not higher compared with pregnant women aged 40 to 49 years.
Elevated risks of pregnancy complications and adverse outcomes with increasing maternal age.
TLDR
The risks for most outcomes paralleled increasing maternal age including prolonged and dysfunctional labour, excessive labour bleeding, breech and malpresentation and primary Caesarean delivery.
Pregnancy at late premenopausal age: Outcome of pregnancies at 45 years and older in Flanders, Belgium
TLDR
In Flanders, mothers at age 45 and older have a significantly increased risk for low birth weight, preterm delivery, hypertension, diabetes, caesarean section and perinatal mortality.
Pregnancy and Obstetrical Outcomes in Women Over 40 Years of Age.
TLDR
The outcomes of pregnancy and childbirth and for newborns born to women ≥ 40 years did not vary significantly from those of younger women if the following conditions were met.

Delayed childbearing and the outcome of pregnancy.
TLDR
It is suggested that although older primiparous women have higher rates of complications of pregnancy and delivery, their risk of a poor neonatal outcome is not appreciably increased.

TLDR
Delayed childbearing is associated with an increased risk of poor pregnancy outcomes after adjustment for maternal complications and other risk factors.

Very advanced maternal age: pregnancy after age 45.
TLDR
In women > 45 years old at delivery maternal and fetal outcomes were generally good, but there was a high incidence of pregestational (chronic hypertension, hypothyroidism) and gestational (karyotype abnormalities, gestational diabetes, cesarean section, macrosomia) complications.

TLDR
Women of 35 or older are more likely than those in their 20s to have cesarean deliveries, and the excess rate of c Cesarean section is only partially accounted for by gestational complications.
Advanced Maternal Age As a Risk Factor for Cesarean Delivery
TLDR
It is suggested that advanced maternal age alone may influence a physician's decision regarding method of delivery, thereby placing some older women at an unnecessary risk of cesarean.
Pregnancy outcome at age 40 and older
TLDR
Nulliparous women age 40 or over have a higher risk of operative delivery than do youngr nulliparrous women, and this increase occurs in spite of lower birth weight and gestational age and may be explained by the increase incidence of obstetric complications.
