what is the best age for having a baby?
October 7, 2010 4:53am CST
I'm 24 year old now, and my husband is 5 years elder than me,we are discussing when to have a baby? nowdays, it costs so much to give birth a baby and raise the baby,so we need to vcalculate if we have the financial ability and enough time to have a baby. I work with computer all the time everyday, the computer radiation will be bad for me when I'm pregnant, so can I continue my job when I'm expecting a baby? and how to divide time between family and work in the future? we live far away from our parents.

I think that the mid twenties are the ideal time for a lady to get pregnant and have a baby. Your husband is about the right age to become a parent too. It might be possible for you to have maternity leave and work part time after your baby is born. I am not certain of the risk of computer radiation these days. Yes, it is sensible to look at your bank statements to see if you could financially manage if you have a baby. If now isn't the right time you could wait up to five years. Then at up to 29 years old my would still be within the best time frame for you to get pregnant.
