What's the Best Age to Become a Mother?

With an eye toward Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, BTR’s weekly news show Pulse takes a closer look at the increase nationwide in the number of women over 35 giving birth. On the streets of New York, women of all ages talk about how old they were when they had their first, while Dr. Deborah Ottenheimer, a Chelsea gynecologist, discusses the pros and cons of having children later in life.

The city’s heartbeat is out there, pumping the Who, What, When, Where and Why that drive the most interesting, newsworthy and often controversial topics we tackle each week on Pulse. We take to the street and give ordinary people a chance to sound off and be heard. From politics and health to privacy and communication, we’ve got our finger on the Pulse. Wednesdays on the new BreakThru Radio.
