We've just been reading that the average age for a first-time mum is now 28.5. And the average age for all mums (so, including second-timers and third-timers and so on) now stands at 30.2.
Both figures are slightly up on last year, according to the Office for National Statistics.
And, interestingly, the average age of fathers has gone up too – to 33.1.
Do those ages sound about average to you? Or not?
How old will you be or were you at the birth of your first child? And what about your partner?
Please do share with us by adding a post to this thread. We'd really love to know!

If you're in your twenties or thirties and don't have kids, a buzz of unspoken questions about your childbearing decisions might have hovered around you.
Even the early twenties seems too young, in some circles, to have a baby-- even when the mother is married and has a college degree. Michelle Horton, for instance, gave birth to her son, Noah, when she was 21, an age that seemed reasonable enough a generation ago.
i ahve my first baby at the age of 29 and i ahve also hired the eservices of midwifery care in order togive best health and care for my child.
I have also my blog related to midwifery care, you can have a look at this.. http://www.lamidwifecollective.com/..
