Women in their 30s are having more babies than women in their 20s.

Studies by the CDC show the new average age for women having children now is 28.

In 2000, it was 24 and in 1970 it was 21.

Women are waiting longer to have children and the teen pregnancy rate is declining.

Educational and job opportunities are more available to women now than we’ve seen in the past, which is contributing to having children later in life.
