Growing up, women often times think they know at what age they want to have children.
The thing about these plans is that life usually gets in the way, with higher education and career goals, the millennial generation is choosing to have children much later in life.
Lucky for us, a new study out of the University of Southern California shows the best age for a woman to get pregnant is 35. The study surveyed 830 women who were tested on verbal memory, concentration, and attention, among other things.
The outcome? Those who had their first baby after 24 tested better on mental sharpness, verbal skills, and problem solving, in comparison to those who were first-timers from 15-24.
Over 30 first-time moms are usually in stable relationships and have steady incomes. They also increase their life expectancy and improve their mental abilities after giving birth.
