It's a question that most women consider at some point in their lives: when's the best time to have a baby? Camilla Chafer asked around to see what she could find out.

Ask most women when the right time is to have a baby and you will get a myriad of responses. Many cite work, finances and relationships as key decision points. Research shows that we have the highest teen pregnancy rate in Western Europe.
