In recent years, the age of women in labour in the Nizhny Novgorod region has begun to change. Earlier, women of the region gave birth mainly before 30, and now, after this age, according to the head of the main registry office of the Nizhny Novgorod region Olga Krasnova.
“Of course, our mothers give birth at different ages. But in recent years there has been such a trend that the age has begun to shift. Today, the largest number of women in labour is between the ages of 30 and 39 (11,013 mothers). The second place is taken by women aged 20-29 (10,585 mothers),” Krasnova said.
The head also added that 803 women from Nizhny Novgorod in 2020 gave birth after 40 years, and 503, at 18-19 years.
