The warnings began soon after I had my first child, Mara. I was 34, a year shy of being medically classified a ‘geriatric mother’ – the age at which the risk of pregnancy complications begin to multiply. The term, at the time, seemed almost comically archaic, and not reflective of the fact that women in their 40s are now more likely to give birth than those in their teens. Figures released just last week show that more than one out of every 25 new mothers is now in her 40s. I felt young, and healthy. I looked young (so I thought!). Not geriatric by any stretch. But people had started making comments like: ‘You’d better get going again, unless you want Mara to be an only child.’ I know how annoying it is to be lectured about fertility.

A Derby vet is among just a few in the country to treat poorly pets using acupuncture - and she has even used the treatment on a CHICKEN. Laura Pugh, of White Cross Vets, in Alvaston, believes the alternative therapy is perfect for giving animals a new lease of life. Acupuncture - which consists of needles being inserted in the skin at specific points along the body - is typically used to treat various physical and mental conditions in humans. But Laura, from Mickleover, is adamant it is making a real difference to local pets who suffer from a wide range of physical and behavioural conditions. She even gave her pet chicken acupuncture because it was old, creaky and had sore hips. The 32-year-old said: "The benefits of acupuncture for people is well-documented, but there is a real lack of awareness about how it can help pets.
