Abstract

This study contributes to the limited number of studies of birth outcomes in advanced maternal age by examining: 1) if there is an association between advanced maternal age and adverse birth outcomes (low birth weight and preterm birth); 2) what are the protective factors and risk factors of birth outcomes for pregnant women aged 35 year or older ; and 3) how the “Weathering Hypothesis,” which explains the association of maternal age and birth outcomes, and “Epidemiological Paradox,” which explains the association of low socio-economic status and favorable birth outcomes are applied to Korean women.
Statistical analysis was performed on data from the Korean birth registration data of 2003 to 2012 in order to find a profile and trend of birth outcomes of women of advanced maternal age and from the National Survey on Fertility, Family Health and Welfare of 2003, 2006, and 2009 compiled by Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs. Additionally, interviewing women of advanced maternal age was performed as a qualitative method to understand their needs. (The rest is ommitted)
