What is the best age for having children?

I don't think there is a best age for having a baby. I think the best time to have a baby is when both the mom and dad want and are ready for a baby. It is important to make sure you are healthy enough for pregnancy too. The best age to have children is going to be different for every couple.

For me the best age was in my twenties. My spouse and I were ready for kids and we were healthy.

    I got married at 24 (well two weeks shy of my 24th) so I had children a bit later and it was right for us.

    Oh I meant to say I had our first when I was 26, almost 27.
