What You Should Know About Having Kids in Your 20s Vs. 30s

Not all pregnancies are created equal. Here’s what you can expect to face in each decade.

The Bump and Bayer Consumer Health, the makers of One A Day Prenatal multivitamins present Right from the Start, a sponsored series full of useful information to help you and your partner prepare for pregnancy. Visit OneaDay.com to learn how One A Day Pre-Pregnancy Couple’s Pack multivitamins can support your pre-pregnancy health.

Spoiler alert: Every woman’s journey to pregnancy—and pregnancy itself—is different. And while there are definitely certain factors that can affect your experience (including your age) these days, older doesn’t have to translate to more difficulty. In fact, for the first time ever, more babies are being born to women in their early thirties than women in their late twenties, according to the latest data from the CDC. But no matter how old you are, your best bet at achieving pregnancy is to keep your body (and your partner’s) as healthy as possible—and that starts with preparing long before you’re actually expecting. One of the important ways is a healthy diet supplemented by a daily multivitamin. Both women and men can start prenatal and preconception multivitamins like One A Day Pre-Pregnancy Couple's Pack) a few months before trying to conceive (men—3 months before conception; women—at least one month before pregnancy). The men’s tablet in the product helps support healthy sperm*, and the women’s softgel will give you (and eventually baby) important nutrients you may need.
