Is 35 really the new 25? For some women over 35 looking to have children, this just might be the case. Let’s imagine we know a highly educated woman in her late 30’s who is thinking of having children.

According to a new from the Pew Research Center study more children are being born to single, educated women over 35 than are to teenagers. The average age at which women have their first child is still 25, though older women may slowly be changing this.

Between 1990 and 2008 the number of older women having children jumped from 368,000 to 603,000 (or one in seven babies) while teen pregnancy rates went from 533,000 in 1990 to 441,000 in 2008 (one in 10).
