When is the right time to have a baby?
Doctors agree (although it’s rarely said in public) that physiologically the late teens or early twenties are the best age to have a child. However, there are other factors to consider, such as being mature enough, getting an education, being financially ready and finding a partner.
In the UK there is a steady shift towards women choosing to postpone starting a family until their late 30s and early 40s, with women choosing to focus on their careers before starting a family. Waiting may lead to a reduction in the chance of conception, and an increase in the medical risks – nearly a fifth of women between 35-44 years of age struggle to conceive.
The Institute for Women’s Health is proud to present a screening of the documentary ‘Fertility and Me’, where One Show presenter Alex Jones investigates what pioneering science is doing to help people struggling to become pregnant - and a Q&A with a panel including Dr Melanie Davies of UCLH.
