Depends: There is no correct answer. It depends on her health, personal goals, aspirations, culture, and financial situation. This is a personal decision made taking into account the needs and desires of the woman and her partner

First pregnancy ?: The best age physiologically is between 17 and 24, in terms of delivery, lack of frequent genetic problems, and recovery factors. Fertility begins to be compromised after 32 and may be significant after 38.
