The late baby debate

You're late thirties, single and you want a baby. Should you get pregnant and have one anyway?
In the end, my hand was forced as I found myself having to go for it aged 35. I have survived due to a certain amount of luck, a lot of physical fitness (I’m actually in better shape than I have ever been) plus a bit of emotional strength boosted by a great deal of counselling. But this is not for everyone. Why not wait a bit longer if it means you are able to draw on the strength a loving relationship provides, or to have a little more financial security or a little more personal maturity? As any parent will tell you, as this little bundle of love crashes into your world and your life changes almost out of all recognition, for ever, the more secure you can be, the better.
