Mothers over 35 account for 40% of maternal deaths in Australia: study

A new study released in the medical journal, The Lancet, has found older mothers account for a significant portion of maternal deaths in Australia.

Despite only accounting for around 23 per cent of all childbirths in the country, the study found mothers over the age of the 35 made up 40 per cent of all maternal deaths.

The number is high in comparison to other childbearing years, with women only having a 5 per cent monthly chance of conceiving once they reach 40.

The number of mothers over 35 in Australia has increased dramatically from just 5.5 per cent in 1975, the study also showed. It is the second highest figure in the world for older-age births, falling behind Spain.
