In 2019 1 baby in 29 was born to a mother over 40.

Not 45, 40.

By birth order, about 1 in 5 of those births were first births to mothers over 40.

Which is to say 1 baby in 138 was a first birth to a mother over 40.

The numbers are slightly higher than 2018 because there were fewer births among moms under 40, so those few 40+ births made up a slightly bigger percentage of the overall amount.

Can’t beat biology.
