The researchers said that women are on average more likely to live longer in a country where pregnancy occurs later than the early-twenties. This finding contrasts earlier studies that suggest a mother should have her first child as early as 20.

While the “earlier the better” is a motto that’s outdated, it’s worth looking into why mothers in their 30s are expected to live longer. It could be that women who wait may be more stable financially and have more cost-effective access to healthcare in their countries. Whatever the reason, don’t let the big 30 feel like the end.
