No, not if you are healthy and happy and able to support your family. It is more and more common these days. I was the “young one” at 32 in my mothers group.

I was 38 when I had my first, 40 when I had my second. No trouble conceiving. Definitely not too old for me. But it’s a very personal decision .

Same here. 38 and 40. Only started late because I got married at 36. Had no trouble conceiving and had healthy children.

For me personally, yes. My youngest was born when I was 32. By the time I was 37 I knew I never wanted to go through it all again. But totally up to the parents. If you feel young, able, and financially stable, then go for it.

I had one at 19, 1 at 34.. Doesn't seem too old, I don't feel old. I don't feel more tired or impatient or different in from when I was raising toddlers in my 20s, in fact I used to nap when they napped because I was so tired back then. I don't nap now, probably because I'm busy, but I hear people say how they are too tired for toddlers in their 30s/40s, but I don't feel that.

It's totally a personal decision. I'm 39 with an 11 and 13 year old. There's no way I could do the newborn/toddler stage now but that's just me.
