I began to look more into whooping cough. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers an abundance of facts: the disease is on the rise in the United States, and in 2012 reached its highest level in more than 50 years (48,277 including 18 deaths). Particularly worrisome to me as an anxious new parent is that the highly contagious respiratory disease can be serious and even fatal for newborns who are vulnerable until they themselves receive the vaccine at 2 months old. About half of all infants under a year old who get pertussis are hospitalized, and one or two out of 100 will die.

A silver lining for some older moms: women who are able to naturally have children later in life tend to live longer.

A study published Wednesday found that women who are able to have children after age 33–without using fertility drugs–have a greater chance of living longer than women who had their last child before 30.

The results of the Boston University School of Medicine study are consistent with other findings on the relationship between maternal age at birth of last child and what researchers consider exceptional longevity–generally living until 95 or older.
