The age women have their first child is increasing globally. The total fertility rate (the average number of children a woman has) is decreasing globally, being on average 1.6 children per woman in the European Union and as low as 1.3 in several countries. Professor Joyce Harper, author of Your Fertile Years, will be joined by a panel of fertility experts to discuss why we need fertility education with a Q and A from the audience. Chairing the event will be Dr Larisa Corda, and on the panel will be Dr Raj Mathur, Chair of the British Fertility Society, Dr Mara Simopoulou, Chair of the Greek MyFertility campaign, and Emma Haslett, Journalist and co-host of @bigfatnegative podcast. 

Joyce Harpers latest book,  Your Fertile Years, will be published in April 2021, by Sheldon Press in April 2021.
