The Truth About Waiting to Have Children

As a Modern Society, Have We Broken the Biological Clock?

Has society broken the biological clock? Women used to become mothers within a certain age range because that was their child-baring window, but now technological and scientific advances have given way to alternate methods of creating families, so many females don't feel pressure to "rush" into parenthood. Modern women can focus on education, establishing careers, and becoming financially stable before they embark on mothering. But, is our attitude competing with Mother Nature's limitations? According to one report:

"Women aged 35 are six times more likely to have problems conceiving than those ten years younger, according to a study from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Up to 30 percent of 35-year-olds take longer than a year to get pregnant, compared to only five percent of 25-year-olds."

The article goes on to list increased risks and complications for both mother and baby as well. What's your opinion?
