    I'd like to be a young mum, my mum was 24 and my dad was 27 when they had me and it's been lovely. However, obviously that means that it's harder to provide financial stability etc for your children, so I'm already planning to save a house deposit by the end of uni and hopefully get a job with high starting salary and excellent maternity provision to make it easier.

    But they don't have to leave you. Some couples make it work. Anyhow, having kids is hard work but it's more worthwhile and beautiful than some psuedo-important career in a world when power elites are attempting to own your soul anyhow.
    Well, some people like kids and some don't. I don't think that nowadays there is a wrong or right answer to that question. Even if I wouldn't have a career, I wouldn't want kids. That's just my opinion and my personality.

    Not looking to have any kids just yet, if I do then it will probably be in my 30's and then just the one.

    No, I know the risks don't majorly go up. But it's just reserach suggests it's ideal for them to have them slightly younger than they are, like before the 30-35 zone, although that zone is ok too, for the absolute optimum fertility and health for the baby.. I know that psychologicaly, economic factors etc also matter.
    If you want to talk about maximum fertility then that's probably around age 20, but then how many women are ready for kids at that age? I think optimum age taking into account ALL factors is probably 25-35.

    I don't have a set plan

    What happens, happens. Ideally I don't really want to be an "old" mum - so before 35!

    christ, if I were to be following some of your ideas of when I should and shouldn't be having kids I would be past it. I'm 33 and I haven't even yet had a first child

    Realistically, first 28, last, 35.

    My mum had me at 37 and (although my parents are awesome and rasied me v well) I think that's a bit too old - all my grandparents died by the time I was 14
