While there are higher risks, it is still safe at this age. I was 36 and my husband 40 when we had our youngest. She was born low birth weight, but perfectly healthy. However, in the year prior to her birth, I did have two miscarriages. Risk of miscarriage is much higher as you get older, as is risk of downs syndrome and other genetic disorders.
