Age of women at first childbirth by country

Have you ever asked yourself when is the average age in your country to have a first child? Seems to me that most women in europe first prefer to get some sort of financial stability and climb the career ladder before they dedicate themselves to having children. Women are delaying to have a first child until they are about 30 years old. I found this data set on average age of women at having first child by country very interesting.
