Does the age of a mother matter? A new working moms survey conducted by our friends over at The Bump and ForbesWoman had some rather interesting results when questions about age and motherhood were posed. Here are some of the highlights:
- 76 percent of respondents feel that the "sweet spot" for a working woman to have or adopt her first baby is between ages 25 and 34. And 42 percent thought that 25 to 29 was the best time.
- 82 percent of moms who had their first child from 25 to 29 were content with the timing of their first child — the most of any group
- 35 percent of moms who had their first child at 30 to 34 wish they had their child at a younger age.
- 57 percent of moms who had their first child at 35 to 39 wish they had their child at a younger age.
How old were you when you became a mom and was it your ideal age?
