What's the best age to have a baby?
We asked our Facebook fans what they think is the best age to fall pregnant. Do you agree?

Deciding when to have a baby is a big decision for potential parents to make. We took to Facebook and asked our fans when they think is the best time to add a baby to the family.

Here's what they had to say:

Whenever you are ready, no time is the perfect time! - Wendy

For me I had my twins at 25 I'm now turning 27. I have enough energy to handle them. There's no right age though. It depends on the individual and whether you're ready for it. - Gezell

I had my first when I was 27 and I think that was the best time ever. I can handle her and grow up with her now and she brings me so much joy! - Cindy

I'm going to be 21 so I know when my little boy is in that 'running around all the time' stage, I'll have enough energy to run with and after him. But hey, I know ladies that are over 30 having babies and they are just as fit. - Casey

I had my first at 26, second at 29 and now my third and last at 34. I think you must be ready emotionally and financially but I was glad to have my kids before I was 35. It's great for me to know that when I get to 40 they will all be over their baby stages. - Allison

It doesn't matter at what age! That is if you can handle it. You need the health and strength for that. I had my baby at 17 years. I'm now 19 and I haven't complained. I raised my baby by myself. Nobody took the responsibility out of my hands. I'm proud of myself. Age doesn't matter to me. - Zayaan
