In Mary's time, young married ladies had their first baby at about 14/15 years of age. Most, if not all the images that portray Mary show Her as a more mature woman. BUT; in today's western world She was just a teenager, a baby Herself, certainly to young for having babies.
AND; heavily pregnant Joseph had Her gallivanting over the country side, on a donkey no less, no wonder She fell into labor.!!!
AND; a little nervous if not "terrified" she gave birth to her first boy child, in an old shepherd's shed, in the middle of no where, with out the support of Her mum, or any other female presence, & as for a midwife as was the custom of that time, well.
I see Joseph as at least 19 years old, 18 when Mary got pregnant. God likes proper....
