– According to a recent study, a woman who has her last child at age 33 has twice the odds of living longer than a woman who has her last child at 29. Women who give birth between the ages of 33 and 37 have an even bigger chance of “exceptional longevity” – defined as living to the age of 95.
– The new study was based on a larger previous research, called the “Long Life Family Study”, that analyzed 4,875 people from 551 households in the United States and Denmark. Considered globally, discoveries in matters of maternity seem to indicate that women who remain fertile for a long time benefit from better health than their less fertile peers.
