The number of women over 40 years of age becoming pregnant has increased over recent years. They suffer a high incidence of hypertensive complications, and require more frequent operative interventions. We present a case report of a 51-year-old woman having a Caesarean section for a twin pregnancy complicated by pre-eclampsia. We discuss the effects of age on pregnancy and the implications for anaesthetic management.
