Posted: Updated:

When it comes to having babies, more Americans think that women should start sooner than later.

According to a Gallup poll, 58% think 25 or younger is the ideal age for women to give birth. Further broken down, there is a slight discrepancy between men women's perceptions. For example, 42% think that 25 or younger is the ideal age for a man to give birth, whereas 52% think that 26 or older is an idea age for men to give birth.

College educated participants favor women waiting until after 25. This is despite the data that shows that 31% of mothers with bachelor's degrees give birth after turning 35.

About 5,100 individuals were polled in this study.
