Since many woman work and settle down later in life now, how old do you think it is ok for them to wait for their first child? They say 30 is the new 20, 40 is the new 30. Does this mean it is safe for women to start having children at 40 now if she is healthy? They may be more mature by this stage and be able to support them better.

I should think that there is no need to wait for the word 'stable' before embarking in starting a family. the earlier you have your first born the better. We will never know when our fertility stops, as many women are unable to have children because of the wait and see attitude. God has made a provision for every child born to this world. No matter how poor a person is the child is sure to be able to survive under intense hardship. An older woman has a high risk of having a mongolian baby so it is best to at least have your first child when you are young and energetic.

Hi Zandi458 I appreciate your comment but I think Mongolia is a country, so I don't quite understand what you mean there. Your point about fertility is a good one.

A mongolian children are born with the same physical features, having an uncontrolled habit. Mongolian children looks all alike, protruding frog like eyes and wide mouth. they have learning difficulties and partially have insane behaviour. I don't know how to explain but try to visualize the physical outlook I describe here.
