As if this wasn’t enough to contend with, childcare is unaffordable in Britain. According to data
from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the UK has the third most expensive childcare system in the world, behind only Slovakia and Switzerland; a full-time place costs £12,376 a year on average. It’s been getting worse for some time, too. Research conducted by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) found that between 2008 and 2016 the cost of a 1-year-old child’s nursery provision
grew four times faster than wages in England. In London, it grew more than seven times faster. Put simply, the problem is less that women are "forgetting" to have children and more that they likely cannot afford to. Where are the seminars about that?
