Have a Baby or a Career? Stats Every British Women Should Know

TBaby Versus a Careeroday I have a very cool infographic I want to share with you. It is all about giving women the information they want to know, or should know, about when it comes to deciding whether or not to keep working or stop and have children.

Having kids is a major decision in life, and older mothers are becoming more common as the stats show in the infographic. Some other points I found interesting in the following infographic were about:

  • The average age of mums having kids and how many of those are over 30
  • What is costs to have a full-time nanny in London look after children
  • How many professional career women will drop out of their career’s to bring up kids or take care of a loved one
  • 7 best jobs for women to keep a work-life balance

The Bottom Line

I see it in the clinic all the time where a lady feels the biological clock ticking away and rushes to find a stable partner or husband to have babies with them. For some of these women getting near their late thirties or into their early forties fertility becomes a big concern. In fact you can see from this fertility clinic in Hertfordshire stat that women who are 38 years old plus the fertility treatment success rate drops off dramatically.

Having children is an amazing experience. I know I am lucky enough to have a beautiful daughter. Money is one thing, but if you really want kids, I feel, you can’t choose the best time, the best time is right now when you are ready to raise a family.
