|Women in the south of England give birth to children an average of ten years later than their counterparts in the north, according to new research.
Northern women are most likely to be in their twenties when they have their first child, with the peak childbearing years being between 25 and 29.
However women in the more prosperous south are likely to be in their 30s, with 30 to 34 being the prime time for childbirth.
