Study Finds That Kids With Older Mums Do Better

It is common knowledge that you should think about your fertility sooner rather than later and that having kids in your 30s can bring a number of risks.

But a new study, published in the Population and Development Review journal, has concluded that children born to older mothers do better than those born to younger mums.

A group of researchers looked at the data of 1.5 million men and women in Sweden between the years of 1960 and 1991.

Based on the levels of fitness and education among kids in relation to the mum’s age, it was found that children born to older mothers were healthier, better educated, and taller.

According to reports, the findings have nothing to do with the mum’s age but is simply down to the fact that as years go by, there is more advancement in terms of education and medicine.
