The average age for women to have a baby has risen from 27 to over 30 for the first time in the last few years.

Meanwhile, the pregnancy rate for women over the age of 40 is also at a record high, and actress Halle Berry gave birth to her second child on 5 October 2013, at the age of 47. That said, although teenage pregnancies have dropped, the UK still has the highest rate in Western Europe.

Experts reckon the best age to have a baby is 34. Are they right? Take a look at this and see for yourself.
