HOUSTON - When it comes to kids, women are waiting longer to have them .

"I think the improved technology with infertility treatments made a big change weren't able to have children are now having an opportunity later on,"  said Dr. Adrian Harvey Mass of Houston Women's Care Associates

The average age of first time mothers is now 26 or older and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says this a major finding.

Some women say money is the reason they wait.

Mom Sara Uhyruk said, "It`s easier to have children when you`re older due to the financial responsibility of them and being a little more stable."

Haylea Nguyen agreed. "You have to have a certain amount of money because kids cost money and it's irresponsible for you to not have any money and be trying to feed and clothe your kids and have best life possible."

More women are putting their own success first by going to college and joining the workforce before baking a bun in the oven.
