A study has suggested that the age of your mother could impact your chances of having children.
The research – carried out by scientists at McGill University in Quebec, Canada – analysed the data of over 43,000 women, and found that a high number of those with no children had been born to older mothers.
Of course, there are a huge amount of reasons why a woman or a man may have fertility issues. And we firmly believe that nobody should feel pressure to start a family until they’re completely ready to take that step.
But it is an intriguing thought. Now that the average age of first-time mothers is higher than ever, at 28.6 in the UK, we’re sure it’s something we’ll hear more about in coming years.
