Average age of mothers, giving birth in 2015

In 2015, the average age of all women giving birth, was 27.4 years and for first-time mothers 24.7 years. When the development over time is considered, it appears that the average age of first-time mothers have increased by 1.8 years over the last 15 years, while the average age of all women giving birth is largely unchanged.


Women living in settlements have their first child 3.2 years earlier than women in towns and here we do not see quite the same development over time.
