When to give birth to the business woman?

Each working woman would like to combine successful career and the birth of children. The question is in when to begin.

Anette Larquin`s

gave birth to the daughter Bella in 38 years. Before it built career - “the best gift“ which she could present also to herself, and the daughter. Twenty years Larquin worked and acquired communications in Washington where, according to her, the reputation is appreciated more, than the summary. She worked at Capitol Hill and at Clinton and Gore`s campaign headquarters during two electoral companies - and achieved great success. By then, when she felt that she is ready to give rise, her career and a financial position completely suited her.

Now thanks to the saved-up experience and Larquin`s communications can work with

according to the free schedule. It is necessary, she says to be mother. She agrees that it, perhaps, is already not so vigorous as she in youth, but believes that she planned everything correctly.

of the Woman make a half of the working Americans and 51% among heads and highly skilled workers. In two of three American families the woman - the main supporter (one or on an equal basis with the husband). All this warms up fierce discussions about how to the woman to divide time between the house and work. whether

the ideal age Exists to give birth to the child, without having offered at the same time career? Certainly, it is good to do it when are already reached success in a profession, a certain social status, a stable financial position and just a maturity in the relations with the partner. Jamie Ledzh, professor of management in Severo - East university, claims that, by results of researches, the longer women postpone motherhood, the they earn more money on a life extent. Childless, unlike mummies, quicker and more often try to obtain increases. Besides, the more time you invested in career, the it is simpler to return to it after a temporary break.

“The longer you successfully work with

, the your role in collective is more noticeable, and it is harder and harder to take a break in work, - Dzhinameri Ligon - Scott, professor of psychology at university Vilanova says. - A top - managers come back to service in two weeks after the delivery as feel huge responsibility“. It is not simple to raise children at all, working at a high position under big pressure and, perhaps, caring for the aging parents. It is strong argument contra for those who delay the birth of children to 35 - 38, and even more than 40 years. And such becomes more and more: according to Bureau of population census of the USA if in 1970 only one of hundred women for the first time gave birth after 34 years, in 2006 - m - already one of twelve. Figures of the American association of a child-bearing (AFA) are even more impressive: 20% of Americans delay the child`s birth to 35 years and more.

the Public opinion, however, does not support a tendency. According to the Internet - to survey conducted by ForbesWoman and the website TheBump. com, the best age for the child`s birth - from 25 to 29 years (42% of the interrogated women so answered). To this age it is possible to construct career and to provide financial independence (33%), and besides both partners will be ready to become parents (30%).

“It appears p, there is correct time“, - Carly Roni, the editor-in-chief says the Internet - communities of the real and future mothers of TheBump. com. Having given birth to the child after 25, it is possible to kill two hares. On the one hand, by this time you probably work several years, have own status which is not connected with motherhood, made accumulation, and with another - are still young and healthy.“ This best combination“, - Roni, given birth to the first child in 29 assures.

Professor Ligon - Scott investigated 196 mothers across all America also found out that on average before the first pregnancy they worked five years. At the same time the women working at price-work payment for the first time give birth in 27 years, and employees on a rate - only in 31. According to Ligon - Scott, the difference is explained by education: the longer you studied, the later you get a job, and the magic figure is five years, perhaps, time which on feeling of women is necessary to designate the situation in a profession.

At an early child-bearing pluses - “you will sit down earlier, earlier you will leave“ - by the time of achievement by mother a top - a management position (about 40 years) children will be already rather adult. Ideal decision, isn`t that so? The problem is that if career went uphill, it is very difficult to stop.

one more important factor to which Robin Gorman Newman pays attention the founder of the website “Late Motherhood“ - when the woman will meet by

I the partner? Robin married in 32 and wanted to spend time together with the husband, without thinking of motherhood. For these years it besides took place as the writer, saved up money. But Newman was necessary to pay for expectation. When she began to try to become pregnant, it turned out that already late. It was very heavy to solve a motherhood problem extracorporal fertilization or adoption, she admits. Eventually in 42 years, 6 years ago, she could adopt the boy.“ Adoption was given me not easy, - she says, - I to the last could not believe that I will not be able to give birth to the child herself. Yes, it was necessary to think earlier, but then I was not ready, I tried to obtain the strong base under legs“.

of Complexity with conception - the most usual threat to all our weighed plans. Doctor Marjorie Greenfield, the obstetrician - the gynecologist and the author of “The book of pregnancy for the working women“, claims that ability to a child-bearing “begins to decrease slightly“ after 25 years, “considerably“ falls in 35 - 39, when the probability to become pregnant after a year of attempts makes 52%, and “considerably“ - after 40 when the chance falls to 36%. If it sounds insufficiently terribly, perhaps, research of scientists from university of Saint - Andrews in Glasgow will seem to more convincing. According to them, by thirty years the woman loses 90% of the ova. To forty it has only 3%.

in process of aging also the risk of complications, for example abortions or genetic disorders at the child, like a Down syndrome increases. Greenfield says that chance to give birth to the child - Down in 35 years - 1/250, and in 40 years - already 1/75. According to AFA, a half of pregnancies on the fifth ten comes to an end with an abortion. Contrary to popular opinion, the age of the father can negatively affect conception and incubation of the child too, predupredat AFA. Early researches showed that the risk of autism or schizophrenia at the child and an abortion at mother increases when the father is more than 40 years old.

Nevertheless “the main problem is an inability to conceive, - Greenfield says. - These risks are underestimated, and genetic, on the contrary, pay too much attention“. According to the Ministry of Health of the USA, at every third woman 34 years these or those problems with a child-bearing are more senior.

is afraid of Greenfield`s

that the numerous star mummies like Madonna or Holi Berri who gave rise on the fifth ten can make false impression as if also they can become pregnant at women. She, as well as most of the interrogated experts, recommends to begin to make attempts soon after thirty. To that age it is possible to achieve financial and emotional safety and at the same time to feel that time still on your party. If you plan several children, Greenfield, then, perhaps specifies, you should begin a bit earlier.

to her words is echoed by Heydi Merkoff, the coauthor of best-sellers “What to Expect When you are Expecting“ (“Waiting for the child“ and other books from the same series): “Try not to tighten. I understand, you want to plan pregnancy for the most successful time, but it is not always realistic. Eventually, the necessary time can never come. Or to come when your body already refuses to cooperate“.
