 Making Time For A Baby

This is the statistic that caught my eye:

Women generally know their fertility declines with
age; they just don't realize how much and how fast. According to the Centers
for Disease Control, once a woman celebrates her 42nd birthday, the chances
of her having a baby using her own eggs, even with advanced medical help, are
less than 10%. At age 40, half of her eggs are chromosomally abnormal; by 42,
that figure is 90%."
