anyone know? when a research group says, there's a 1:50 chance of 'whatever' disorder a baby to a pregnant, over 40 woman....are they saying the "50" is out of all women (of any age) or women, who are over 40 only?

Because if the statistics are showing over 40 women only.....the figure looks much better, because there are fewer over 40 women, having babies.

Sounds like they are saying...

In a group of 50 women (over the age of 40) 1 woman has a chance of getting this disorder.

thanks.....when we look at the stats for over 40 women, it always looks scary & bleak, BUT I don't see a ton of, over 40 women, who are having babies, with genetic disorders......I guess, I see more m/c's, than anything.  :smileyindifferent:
