Trend to give birth after 30 years worldwide, and there is nothing to worry. However, in Russia these changes came from Europe, only in the 90-ies of the last century. It in conversation with radio “Komsomolskaya Pravda” said the Director of the Institute of demography of the Higher school of economy Anatoly Vishnevsky.
He noted that 30 years ago most women gave birth to first child in the period from 20 to 24 years. However, by 2008 this age limit shifted to 25-29 years. Now the first place on the level of fertility shifted to the age category of 30 to 34 years.
According to experts, the reason for this phenomenon is the changing conditions of life, why women are not in a hurry. “Now women don’t have to give birth five or six times in my life and more, as it was traditionally. And so then I had to go into labor early. Had to have a lot of time, most born died,” he explained.
However, this trend is common in all countries. For example, the middle East, Africa and China are experiencing a demographic explosion. According to Vishnevsky, this creates a lot of problems not only for these regions but for the entire world.
Earlier it was reported that the Russians were more likely to have children after 50 years, and in 2019 five women over 60 have given birth to the firstborn. Such data, according to experts, indicate the development of reproductive technology and medicine in General.
