Many women in the U.S. are waiting longer to have children, pushing the average age of first-time moms to an all-time high. But this trend is much more pronounced in some parts of the country than in others. The Seattle area is among a handful of places at the forefront of the shift toward older motherhood. In King County, it’s now more common for a woman to have her first child in her 30s or 40s than in her teens or 20s. Fifty-seven percent of first-time mothers in the county were 30 or older, analysis of 2016 data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows. How exceptional is that?
