    The child-bearing age is supposed to be 14-44, however, there are some women who go beyond that.  You should also wait at least 2 years in between babies to allow the body to return to an optimal state and have a healthy baby.

    At whatever age she can ensure that she will have the NON-GOVERNMENT, NON-WELFARE, NON-PUBLIC EDUCATION resources to raise it to at least 18 years of age.

    All too many women have the "need to breed" or stupid religious wacko ideas against abortion, and drop litters of spawn with no thought of consequences.  Sort of like cats, rats, dogs.

    The human body reaches maturity at the age of twenty three. so I'd reccomend that age and older.

    i was 20 with my first ,had 2 more that were 2 and ahalf to 3 yrs apart. i worked for 5 yrs,and decided to start again at 35,then 2 more all 2 yrs apart.,1 just turned 2 when i had #5(a total of 6).it maybe just me,but having babies later is sure tiresome,maybe because i was already raising 3.i guess if you are physically able and somewhat healthy,i had medical issues (nothing major)Iwith all 6!Iwould rather see an older woman with her head staight have babies then the baby mommas i know,however i believe 45 and up is pushing it,remember ,our bodies are programmed to age,no matter what we do .

    How about, we go the other way! No baby should have a baby! So I think  18 and under absolutely not. Then we get into some tricky territory, 18 and older only when married to the daddy. Give the kid a chance, make a good moral home for children. Don't mess them up, let them begin life with a clean slate so they can choose whats right for them selves.

    Depends,  if you have them young, you have a lot more energy, but less patient.  When you are older, you have less energy and more patience.  Personally, I had children later in life, and it has worked out for me.  I really find myself living in the moment and charishing everything, because it goes super fast.

    when you're younger you have a lot more strengh energy and you are (your body )is more cpable of being a mommy to kids having babies being up énight changing diapers running back and forth breastfeeding it takes a lot from your body and when your young it is much easier for your body to keep up to all da work.
    when your older , you may be more -settled( finance,house...)-wiser-patience.. but you can never know when you're body will stop letting you have more  kids so i think that bottom line it's easier when you're younger kids like to have a young energetic mother

    my babies are 16 months apart and my body is perfect you don't have to wait years for your body to be ready for another baby unless you're having problems.

    I had my first baby when I was 18, another when I was 30 and my last baby twins when I was 37.  I would definitely say that I was a more relaxed mother when I was 18 and felt able to cope with anything, maybe that was why he was an excellent baby.  When my second baby was born I think I read too much and forgot how to be a natural mother.  By the time the twins were born I was reading too many books on everything and my confidence actually took a bit of a nose dive.  There were however complications.  I think that the younger you are the better it is and would suggest that your best baby years are around your twenties, more or less.  I would never recommend having babies over 35 as you are really too tired to cope.

    I had my first daughter when I was 25, then at 27, the second one came along.  Even though many friends said that it's too big a sacrifice to be a mother in my mid-20s and losing my freedom blah blah blah...I had never regretted my decision.  My girls are 9 and 7 now and for the past few years, we had a blast of time doing things we enjoy together.  Such things might never have happened had I got married later and have my babies in my 30s.  Best of all, most people I meet envy me for being a young mother with grown up children.  Some friends my age had not even started planning for children!
