This study looks at many of the issues women of advanced maternal age face, but focuses primarily on fatigue and depression, as these seem to be two of the main complaints that are expressed by this group of women. Why these complaints are so prevalent is discussed, as well as the purpose behind this study and the theoretical framework that it deals with.

From the Paper:

"The concern over women of advanced maternal age (over 35) giving birth has had a long history. There are many that think it is dangerous, and not just for the physical health of the mother, but for her mental and emotional health as well. Much of this has to do with the fact that there are many risks that come with having a baby, and the older the mother is when she has her first child the harder it often is for her. This is especially true of women who are over the age of 35, but some women have babies when they are in the late thirties or their forties with no apparent ill effects. Nevertheless, the concerns are very real and should not be ignored by women over 35 who are considering having their first child."
