According to researchers, the concept of a young mother may soon be a thing of the past. But what does this mean for women and their reproductive health?


For many decades doctors have held the belief that having a child after 30 poses dangers to women’s health, such as a higher chance of breast cancer and possible complications during pregnancy.

A new study found that the average age of mothers is slowly getting higher as more women have children in their 30s and even in their 40s. It appears there are no medical problems for them at all.

The reason for this trend is that many modern women feel they want to be stable, both financially and in their relationships, before starting a family. They often only feel ready after they have turned 30.



Women who start their families later in life are prone to developing better problem-solving skills, having an increased level of mental reasoning, and superior memory to their peers.

Modern day medical technology can also benefit women who wish to start their families after 30. Processes such as IVF, egg donation, and surrogacy can help a woman who is unable to conceive naturally.

Scientists and psychologists agree that women who have babies later in life, or at least when they are ready to, are more beneficial to their children as they have a different perspective from mothers who are not.



Even celebrities are embracing the chance to start families later in life. First, it was country singer Carrie Underwood, and more recently Paris Hilton decided to give it a try.


37-year-old socialite Paris Hilton has definite plans to one day have children with her fiance Chris Zylka, 31. She doesn't want her age to stop her from being able to be a mother in the future.

Paris has recently started the process of freezing her eggs. She has been experiencing quite a few side-effects; such as dizziness and cold sweats, but she is not letting that get her down.

She wants to have children with Chris, who she says is the love of her life. She will follow through with what is necessary for them to have a family together.
