Pregnancy rates are on the up for 30-somethings
Recent estimates from the Office for National Statistics show the number of conceptions for women aged between 30-34 has increased by 3.5% and by 3.4% for those between 34-39. And, amongst 40-year-olds and over, figures doubled: 6.6% per 1000 in 1990, to 12.8% in 2009.
ZEST says: Although these figures aren't confirmed just yet (they will be out in the autumn), it's possible that this rise in 30-something pregnancies is down to a better general knowledge and awareness of fertility and how to boost it.
