Hello

I'm 32 and my OH is 37, are we classed as older parents?

Not at all!

I'd say that's about average age tbh. Most of my friends with babies/toddlers are in their mid 30's, but none of my friends the same age as me (27) have children. One is thinking about it, but that's as close as it gets!
I'd actually say I'm closer to being a young parent (25 when he was born), so 32 isn't old at all!

Not that it matters, anyway. Just a number. Smile

When I was a student nurse doing my midwifery section over 26 was an older mum. I had my first baby at 27 and was not considered older. This time around I was 36, and considered an older mum. But my Downs risk came back as less than the average 18 year old!
