ATLANTA, GA – You probably couldn’t tell from strolling by the tabloids in the grocery store, or by any of MTV’s classy programming, but there is good news when it comes to the number of teens having babies in the US.

Researchers from the CDC say the number of young women poppin’ out little ones, dropped to ‘historic lows’ in 2011.

Breaking it down by age the numbers are pretty telling. Researchers found birth rates fell 8% for ladies ages 15-29 and rose in women ages 35-39 and 40-44.

A trend towards more mature mothers sounds good to us.
