More Women Postponing Pregnancy

Many women are putting their plans to have a baby on hold , at least until the economy gets better.

In a survey of more than a thousand women in their childbearing years, 14-percent said the ailing economy has had an effect on their plans to increase the size of their families. 12-percent knew of someone who'd postponed a pregnancy for financial reasons. 14-percent had also cited the bad economy for postponing a trip to the gynecologist for an annual check-up.

The survey was conducted for the American college of obstetricians and gynecologists.
