After a failed marriage I met my current husband in 1988 and married Raymond in 1989.We quickly our 4 children.our children were born in 1990,1992,1994 and 1995.I was aged 32,34,36 and 37.It was good having our children close together as they are all have a close relationship and get on well

My first was born a month before birthday in 2015. So I would had been 20-turning-21. 10 months after my first I had another child and because of their short age gap they're both in the same school level. I find it cool how every year, they're the same age for 3 months, from March 13th to May 13th. Oh yes, they're both born on the 13th. Last kid was in 2019 with my current partner.

I was 34 The for my first child. But that wasn’t my first pregnancy. My son was my sixth pregnancy. Then I lost another, then two more children. I love my now 3 children more than life itself! No matter what your age, being a parent is a true gift!

29 when i had my first son after 4 years of trying. Second son came along 2 years later. Im glad i was a bit older as eldest son has special needs and i dont think i personally would have been able to cope as well if i were younger

23 with first, age doesn't matter as long as you are prepared to do your best as there are mothers young and old who shouldn't have children.

I had my first at 25 and my second at 27 I think it was a good age for my husband and me I wanted to wait till then for the obvious reasons I wanted to make sure I was at a point in my life that they would always be the centre of my world

I had my first child at the tender age of 41 and my second and last at 43. Thought about it at age 25 but didn't happen. I am now 53 years old with 2 beautiful boys who are growing so fast. Now 12 and 10, they keep me young. Never too old, within reason of course.

I was 26, but I really don't think age is a factor. The only thing needed to make a good mum is loving your child and making them your top priority. Here's lots of opinions floating around about young or mature aged mothers, but age does not affect your ability to love.
