Hi there,

overall it is better to think about having a child at a point in your life when you feel more settled, and have an established relationship and are also in a position to financially support a child. In the mean time taking appropriate precautions is strongly advised, so that it can happen when you are ready.

You can perhaps talk to your boyfriend about how he feels about having children in general and in the future rather than asking him if he wants a child right now - this way you can hear his views without alarming him.

Don't rush into having a child - it is infinitley better for a child that their parents are ready, and really wanting them.
