According to research, women now give birth in Russia first child in average at the age of 37.
This year, the average age at which women give birth to the firstborn, was 37 years old. This trend emerged in recent years – informed women trying to become mothers at an earlier age.
According to doctors, now the Soviet tradition to record all new mothers over the age of 27 in “starorodyaschih” no longer practiced. The fact that the peak fertility occurs at the age of 24 years and then decreases gradually. In addition, with age, accumulated various chronic diseases and other pathologies, which may not only worsen during pregnancy, but also significantly complicate its offensive.
It was therefore decided to advise women to have offspring as early as possible. This was facilitated by the society – a rare woman wanted a career, it was decided to have a strong family and devote themselves to child-rearing.
But this model started to go along with the Soviet Union. Now the vast majority of women prefer to get an education and be successful in your profession, and only then start a family.
Age is not a hindrance to becoming a mother. The doctors assured the best option is a conscious and desired motherhood.
