IT’S OKAY TO WAIT

NEXT (New Zealand) - - Community -

I loved your feature about women de­lay­ing hav­ing chil­dren. My mum had me and my sib­lings rel­a­tively late, and I re­mem­ber her say­ing how glad she was to have the time to do all the things she’d wanted to do be­fore hav­ing us, so she never felt like she had to give anything up. Now that I’m get­ting to the age when she be­came a mum, I have to agree. There’s noth­ing wrong with hav­ing kids early and hear­ing your bi­o­log­i­cal clock tick­ing is daunt­ing, but it’s nice to have your 20s to your­self and to tick a few things off your list be­fore you have to bal­ance all that and a fam­ily too.
