Kirstie Allsopp gives advice to young women to have children in their 20's

Television presenter Kirstie Allsopp has waded into the baby decision debate by telling young women to put having a baby ahead of their career.  I understand her reasoning.  It is true that fertility drops sharper after 35 and many women who have started to explore having children after 35 are often shocked when there are difficulties due to age.  Saying that if she had a daughter, Allsopp  says that she would advice her not to go to university but to work, buy a flat, get a boyfriend and have a baby.

While I think the discussion on when to have children is important (and very important for women in their late 20's when they are talking about the future with potential partners), I don't think that having children before continuing with education and career is necessary!
