Who’s most likely to fall pregnant in 2017? How would we even know? We’ve got a simple-yet-special formula that reveals all and it tells us that these twenty women might just be top of the list…

Most monikered

ABS statistics tell us that the average age of Australian first-time mums is currently 30.9 years.

We decided to use this intel to research just WHO would be having babies this year. We checked out the most popular names for women born in 1986 and 1987.

These gals are about to turn, or have recently turned 30 – and thus are statistically most likely to be pregnant with their first bub this year.

Most likely ladies

All this helpful offical info cleverly combines to reveal the 20 most likely names for first-time pregnant mums in 2017. (There are obviously no guarantees, but it’s an interesting exercise in names, ages and stages!)

As you can see, the top two names – Jessica and Sarah – were way, way out ahead in the popularity stakes.

Scroll through to see who was up next, and who’s most likely (statistically, at least) to conceive in 2017.

Maybe someone you know is on the list?!
