Quoting azade:

These days people's lives and situations vary so much it's impossible to say when the right time to settle a family is. Sure I can see that it's best to have be financially stable first which most people won't be until years after ended education but I am personally very happy that growing up my parents were young (they were 19 and 21 when I was born) and they never struggled financially because of me. Myself, I would love to have a child now but also understand that it's not the time as I (especially after seeing the lives of the majority of turkish children) want to give them the best childhood and possibilities as can be.



Sounds very logical...

................Almada this is what drive me nuts..when did I say in my original post anything about my mother. I only referenced her later on... Strike while the Iron is Hot..hehehehe



Hey, have them whenever you want to...but too many young women have been misled into thinking they can put it off and off and off with no realistic insite on just what is and is not possible, and what is to be the expected outcome of waiting.

We have a tendancy believe in Science to an absurd degree. Although I respect science, often times all the facts are not revealed. Did you know that invitro fertilization has more possibilities of producing a chimera or intersex child?....

There are a many benefits to having a child later in life too, Alameda. If you would rather be the voice of gloom and doom, fine. But just because you put off having a baby for a few years doesn't mean anything will go wrong. Statistically, you are pointing out a very small percentage of things that can go wrong and making it seem like there is IMMINENT danger. The fact is, if a mother is healthy she will probably give birth to a healthy child.

I think having a baby in your late 40s is a bit extreme...and for me personally...a bit distressing to say the least! Imagine going to your childs high school graduation and you are in your 60s!

Biologically it is probably best to have a child in your early twenties, however, mentally and financially it is probably better to wait. My primary school friends have had babies at different stages of their lives - some had children as early as 17, some are still waiting. Those who had children at 17 now have 12-year-olds are are quite happy to be 30 and free to enjoy their free time with big children not demanding so much care. Those who had kids this or last year are more than happy to pay all their attention to their children as they planned them carefully, had enough money to do that, are not as dependant on other people's help as those seventeens. I've decided to have a child at 30 because I wasn't ready earlier.

I think it is how ready you are that sets the proper time. It doesn't matter if you're 20 or 40. If there are no medical restrictions then you should enjoy motherhood. I don't think anybody looks down on 40-year-old mothers anymore.

I remember I saw a tv program on a woman who wanted to have a child in her 60s. Call me ageist, but that's a bit too late for me.
