The impact of childbearing at advanced ages is great, both in terms of maternal and child health and in demographic terms. Table 1 shows the percentage of all births in Mexico, Egypt and Hungary to women 35 years old or more. In Mexico, more than one fifth and in Egypt almost one fourth of all births are to older women, compared with less than 5% in Hungary. Thus, simply by eliminating births to women over 35, Egypt could reduce its birth rate by 25% . The contribution made by older mothers to maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity is greater than the number of births would suggest, and elimination of childbearing beyond age 35 would significantly reduce mortality and morbidity.
