How rational is the decision to have child?

I've been thinking a lot about the role of rationality in making the decision to have kids.  One thing that interests me is that many clients come to me having tried to work out the decision in a very rational, logical way.  Some are in very rational professions - scientists, fiance, etc. And yet, in this decision, over-reliance on the rational can actually be a hindrance.  As I have said before in the blog, this is a decision in which we need to be able to access the un-rational side of ourselves, or our intuition.  I think this short article points to some of the problems with viewing the decision as strictly a logical choice.
