New research seems to have cracked some of the reasons why most women delay childbirth, attributing it to fear of not being the perfect mother.
New research reveals reasons why women delay childbirth
Almost three-quarters of those surveyed said the pressure of juggling a career and family life was putting them off trying to conceive.
Some women have been revealed to be worried about being labelled as a ‘part-time’ mother if they worked, or said they feared it would be ‘impossible’ to meet the expectations of their in-laws, friends and colleagues.
The report by the Pregnancy Advisory Service also found out that one of the main reasons for women putting off starting a family was the struggle to find Mr Right.
Other concerns included not feeling ready for the responsibility a child, not owning their own home or simply not having enough money.
All of which are actually irrational fears and they can only be put to rest when one becomes a mother so feel free to go for it as soon as is convenient.
