The baby gap and related topics feature almost daily in the global media.

I’ve written about egg freezing for Easy Living, childlessness and IVF in The Sunday Times and The Guardian, dating as a 40-something would-be mother for The Daily Mail, spoken about the baby gap on BBC Newsnight and blogged about it on The Huffington Post, JustCharlee, We Are The City and my own blog, From Forty With Love. Check out my website to read some of my articles and blogs on the subject.
