Fewer women are having babies now than ever before, according to a CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) report that came out this month. 

However, pregnancy rates are actually going up for women between the ages of 30 through 44. This is partly due to reproductive technology such as egg freezing and In Vitro Fertilization. Many women are delaying having kids until later in life due to career, financial, lifestyle and other reasons.

Here to talk about delayed motherhood and the reproductive technology that can sometimes aid in this process are Reproductive Endocrinology at University of Cincinnati Center for Reproductive Health, Dr. Suruchi Thakore, and Infertility Expert and Physician at Bethesda Fertility Center, Dr. Isela Molina Robertshaw.
