Having children in late thirties linked to enjoying more of your thirties

WOMEN who delay motherhood until their late thirties face an increased risk of having more years of freedom and fun, according to researchers.

The Institute of Studies found a strong link between putting off motherhood and experiencing more years enjoying a social life relatively free of screaming, heavy lifting and someone wetting themselves.

Professor Henry Brubaker said: “The sooner you have a baby, the sooner you risk shutting down any area of your life that makes you feel good.

“Every woman of childbearing age would be right to ask herself: ‘How many years do I have left in me to get off my tits every weekend?’”

Brubaker added: “I believe delaying the end of lighthearted japery is the biggest issue facing women today – apart from all the other bits and bobs that have come up over the past year.”
