If you’re in your 20s and recently married, you’ll probably be familiar with dodging questions on an impending pregnancy. But if you haven’t reached that stage in your life, that’s okay.
In an interesting study conducted by researchers of the London School of Economics, UK, about 18,000 children were studied to understand the affect of mother’s age on their development. This golden age being the 30s.
This study was published in the Biodemographic and Social Biology journal and stated that babies born to women who were over 30 were far more intelligent than those born to women in their 20s or 40s. In addition, these children also scored higher in cognitive testing.
The researcher also states that first-time mothers in their 30s could be more educated, have higher incomes, healthier lifestyles and likely to be in a stable relationship, and usually plan their pregnancies. Take for instance, out popular Bollywood celebrities such as Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Lara Dutta, Madhuri Dixit, Shilpa Shetty and Karishma Kapoor among others.
