A study was performed from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and it reveals that average childbearing age for women is now 29.3 years of age. In 1968 this age was 23. If you ask the doctor, when it is the right time to have a baby, it varies from 20 to 35. It is the safest age range to have a baby because during this time in most of the cases fertility cycle works properly.
“Fertility peaks from age 20 to 25 and begins to decrease at age 30,” says Dr. Patricia Tiernan, MD, OB-GYN, from Bourbonnais, Illinois. Generally, women this age are healthy, without chronic medical conditions, and have lots of energy. According to her 28 or 29 are the best to conceive a first child.

Although you can conceive your first child after your 20’s also but that time most of the women are not capable to take responsibility for newborn babies. Older mothers are often aware of the risks and they can take good care of their baby.
The study also reveals that up to 30 percent of 35-year-olds take longer than a year to get pregnant compared to only 5 percent of 25-year-olds. They also say that women in their late 30s and 40s are more likely to suffer complications such as miscarriage, pre-eclampsia, ectopic pregnancy and stillbirth- and are also far more likely to need a Caesarean.
