The Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation published statistics: women began to give birth later. The age of a woman in labor carrying her first child has risen from 25 to 25 and a half years. It seems that everything is not so scary.
However, it should be noted that this is only the national average. And at what age to give birth to the first, largely depends on how many children the couple wants to have.
“If young people plan to have at least three children, then the first child should be born when the mother is not yet 23 years old,” says gynecologist Natalya Keleinikova. - If the family plans to bring up two children, then the woman needs to hurry up to get her first child before the age of 27. But with an only child, you can pull up to 32. It is possible later, but childbirth will then be much more difficult.
But many mothers with many children think differently.
“You need to give birth at the age when the woman herself has matured,” says Natalya Karpovich, mother of six children. - At the same time, you need to give birth as much as God sends. I had my first child at the age of 17. Now I'm 46, and if everything goes well, I will give birth again. My oldest daughter is already 28, and she also has two children.
At the same time, the woman believes that, of course, the support of her husband is important for a mother with many children: he is the support and first aid in raising children.
On March 20, the Association of Large Families in the capital plans to discuss the issue of opening family family kindergartens. This is already practiced in Moscow.
