Expert warns women to have babies before 30

If you have the right partner, you're financially stable and you're physically ready then do not delay.

Professor Geeta Nargund

One of Britain's top NHS fertility specialists has issued a stark warning to women: Start trying for a baby before you're 30 - or risk never having children.

In a strongly worded letter to Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, consultant gynaecologist Professor Geeta Nargund has also demanded that teenagers are taught about the dangers of delaying parenthood, because of the spiralling cost to the taxpayer of IVF for women in their late 30s and 40s.

Professor Geeta Nargund joins us to tell us more about why she thinks women should not be delaying motherhood.

What do you think? Do you think women should have children before 30 or do you think there's no danger in waiting until they're in their thirties?
