Rezumat: Background. The birth at an advanced age of the mother,
especially after 35 years old, is more and more frequently
observed, not being without risks both for the mother and for
the fetus or newborn. This study aims to evaluate the effects
of the mother’s advanced age on obstetric and perinatal
outcomes. Conclusions. Pregnancy in the elderly mother
is often accompanied by adverse obstetric and perinatal
outcomes. In such cases, counseling and monitoring of
pregnancies regarding pregnancy risks should be a priority. Cuvinte cheie: advanced maternal age, adverse pregnancy
outcomes, perinatal outcomes, maternal outcomes.
