More women having children later in life

A few days ago, a report was produced showing that women the number of women having children in their 40's has trebled.   It shouldn't be a surprise considering how many more choices we have as women now.  Over the six years that I have been coaching women around this decision, I have noticed that there has been a steady increase in the numbers of women coming to see me who are in their early to mid 40's. 

 I personally think it's postive that women can consider many more choices and can choice to have children at a time that is best for them.  The only caveat to this is around the issue of fertility - as it is more difficult to conceive in your late 30's or 40's.

Is there ever a right time to have a baby?

Hello to all my readers!

I was interviewed for the London Magazine 'The Stylist' a few weeks ago and my interview has now appeared! If you'd like to take a look, you can read the whole piece here Is there ever a right time to have a baby?

I think many of the people who wrote in the comment section had some good points about the article - personally, I think there is huge scope to write about the problems women have whose partners don't want children or who find themselves single.  That's why in my book (which I hope to be publishing via Kindle FINALLY) by September will have two large chapters dedicated to this issue - so what this space!
