One possible explanation might be that more women are leaving the workforce (due to the bad economy and layoffs), so they have more flexibility to start a family.
I've also read in a similar vein, that increasing numbers of people are becoming stay-at-home spouses, probably because they can't find jobs anymore. Perhaps they feel disillusioned by the career world and don't feel it brings them happiness anyway.
