Something about pregnancy over 40 May 9, 2016 7:04 AM   Subscribe

I'm trying to a find a comment someone made in an Ask thread about the statistics that show increased birth defects in over 40s mothers are based on over 40 primigravidae. Anyone else seen this research, or remember this comment?

I had to look this up. "primigravida" means "a woman who is pregnant for the first time."

I remember reading things recently on here using that same word-ish. But I found hits with primAgravida instead in my search. Any of those it?

... I remember reading the same thing, here or somewhere else.

There's this comment and it's following one from rainydayfilms in January, linking to this Atlantic article.
