6 on Health: New report suggests women waiting longer to become mothers

A new report in the Journal Pediatrics suggests teens and women are waiting longer to become mothers.

From 2013 to 2014, the teen birth rate dropped 9 percent, and it's down 61 percent since 1991, according to the report.

The data also revealed that women are waiting longer to have babies.

In 2014, the birth rate for women ages 35 to 39 rose 3 percent. And, it went up 2 percent for women ages 40 to 44.
