More Babies in Finland = Good, Less Babies in US = Good, huh?

On Mother's Day some news about who should have babies when:
Minister of Health and Social Services Liisa Hyssälä feels that Finnish couples are waiting too long before starting families.

"If the first child is born when the mother is around 30 years old, many families end up not having as many children as they had planned," she said.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic the big story has been a drop in pregnancies - at least among more affluent women, reports the Washington Post:

Poor women in America are increasingly likely to have unwanted pregnancies, whereas relatively affluent women are succeeding more and more in getting pregnant only when they want to, according to a study analyzing federal statistics.
