When it comes to having a child, there’s so much for women to consider: Biological clocks, suitable partners, career ambitions and fertility factors.
While the mean age at first birth in the U.S. is just over 25,according to the CDC, many women can’t imagine having a baby that young – just a few years after graduating from college, with dreams of exploring the world and at the start of their career.
So with many delaying motherhood for work and other reasons, and with couples able to conceive later in life with the help of modern medicine, it’s commonplace to see first-time moms in their 30s and even 40s.
What do you think? What's the right age to have a child? How old were you when you had your first child? If you could do it over again, would you have him/her at that age?
