    Why is IT better for women emotionally, economically, & psychologically to have children in their

    mid-30s to late 40s as opposed to having them in their late 20s to early 30s?

    1. A woman's fertility starts to drop at 30 and drops really fast at 35. Wait until you're 40, and there is a good chance you will not be able to have your own biological children. So no, it is BAD advice to say wait until you're 37 to even start trying.
    2. The odds of diabetes, high blood pressure and other pregnancy complications skyrocket in your late thirties and forties.
    3. If you manage to have one child at 40, that is likely to be your one and only.

    I would say that it is good to wait until your late twenties to have children, when you are likely to be emotional mature, more financially stable and married.
    Your early thirties is the start of the countdown.

      NOT TRUE AT ALL!  Women are fertile as long as they have their periods.  As long as one has periods,one can be mothers if they choose.The 20s are a time to be living & exploring.The mid to late 30s into 40s are the right periods to become mothers

    It is better for women to wait until well into their 30s & 40s to have children for the following reasons:

    (1) She had life experiences so she is more settled as to her role in being a mother.  Women who wait until their late 30s & 40s to have children have myriad experiences behind them. They have sowed their wild oats, having had lots of me time before settling down. In essence, they won't have any unlived experiences & regrets that they didn't live their full lives before becoming mothers.  They had an unfettered youth so to speak. They had their experiences so they are more focused as mothers.

    (2) She has obtained her optimum educational level & is extremely established in her career.  She is economically focused & can provide her children w/the best of opportunities since she was smart enough to obtain the maximum education & to wait to have children until she is economically prepared to provide for them.  Because she is educated, she can impart knowledge based upon her optimum educational level experience unto her children.  Since she is fulfilled regarding her educational & career achievement, her children, particularly her daughters, have wider & varied choices. 

    (3) Since she had many life experiences behind her, she is better suited psychologically to be a mother. She won't become unnerved when children makes mistakes because added years of wisdom.  She is even more understanding of her children, using more constructive & instructive forms of discipline.  Because of her life experience, she is calmer as a parent. It is smart women who wait until they are well into their 30s & 40s before having children which is overall BEST for both mother & child.

    I dont think waiting that late is the best idea.I think it is quite possible for someone in their 20s to have have Patience,Career, and as far as experience and wisdom go,I dont believe anyone has this until after they become a mom.

      Women in the 20s should be living THEIR OWN lives of explorations regarding relationships, education, travel, career, & education.They SHOULDN'T be tied down & saddled/wkids in their 20s.The late 30s & 40s is the right time to be mothers-
