"I always tell people that if I had an opportunity to do it over, I would have children later in life," says Moodley, who specializes in caring for older mothers-to-be and their babies.
"The problem with having children in your early 20s is that you are still setting up your own life - trying to accumulate wealth, buy a house, and do all of those things - and then you don't have enough time for them.
So I always say that having kids at a later age in life is a good thing."
More and more women must agree with Moodley since,
More women than men suffer from anemia.Blood loss from heavy periods is one reason.Pregnancy and/or breast-feeding require a woman's body to use two-and-a-half times as much iron when compared to the non-pregnant state.Women who follow fad diets also risk iron deficiency."Many women approaching reproductive age are iron-deficient, and therefore are at risk for blood transfusions when delivering a baby or receiving a gynecological surgical procedure," says Dr. Moodley.
