In Due Time: Why Maternal Age Matters Core

Focusing on the group of mothers age 35 and over, this new Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) analysis provides comprehensive Canadian information both on mothers' and newborns' health outcomes that are associated with mothers' age and on the cost drivers of in-hospital care.

Pooling three years of hospital data from 2006-2007 through 2008-2009, linking birth records and mothers' hospital records for all live births, the report explores how age is associated with the following: risks of pregnancy and labour complications; medical or surgical assistance during labour to ensure a safe delivery; and adverse birth outcomes and birth defects. Where data is available, these outcomes are examined for singleton births based on whether it was a women's first or subsequent live birth.
