The fact of forming a family and conceiving a child deserves great maturity and commitment on the part of parents, being mandatory and moral, offering children a good childhood, care and an education.

The second factor to consider

However, a second factor comes into play, which is the health of the mother and the child, the protagonists during those 9 long months. We well know that the physical effort involved in pregnancy is not the same at 20 as at 40, since scientific and psychological studies show that between 20 and 30 the capacity to conceive, engender and give birth is greater. birth to a healthy child without major complic

ations Some other factors that give us the argument and sufficient evidence to increase a specific age are:

  • The maturity
  • Emotional and financial stability
  • The most optimal point of maturation of the woman's body
  • Fertile capacity
  • Cognitive and behavioral level
  • Recovery after delivery
  • Sedentary lifestyle

Explaining a little about all the factors indicated above, the perfect age should include all types of maturity, on the part of the woman and the couple themselves. In addition, the couple must have emotional and economic stability to be able to support the baby and give him the best possible childhood, where his studies and emotional health are guaranteed.

In addition, studies indicate that women have an age where the body enters an important and usable state of maturity, an age where pregnancy does not affect in a harmful way, menstrual cycles are more stable, sexual desire increases, it is easier to lose weight. and recover the figure, elasticity and vitality.

Fertile capacity

In terms of fertile capacity, the eggs are at a disadvantage. Like any cell in the body, eggs also age, lose quality and quantity, so the chances and abilities to become pregnant decrease as age continues to advance.

In this case, we highlight that after the age of twenty, the chances of acquiring certain complications increase, be it to gestate, during pregnancy, the risks of miscarriage or chromosomal abnormalities.

Regarding the cognitive level, studies indicate that the children of women over 30 have a higher intellectual performance, compared to the children of twenty-somethings also evaluated.

Another point to consider for the age at which you decide to have your baby, is the recovery after giving birth, at the age of 35 this recovery can be much slower than that of a younger woman. In the

Taking this into account, we are not involved in indicating a specific age, however there are definitely the perfect ages to start looking for that child with your partner, either due to the psychological or physical factor.
