back to kids

I've just read the past couple of months' postings on this list.  The
discussion about when to have children is relevant to me because I'm planning
on pursuing the academia/research career and very much want a family.
      (Introduction: I am a candidate for an honors AB degree in Biology
at Brown University.)
       One issue related to children that was not mentioned was the money
factor.  If you are working towards a PhD, or waiting for a grant/professorship
etc., do you have enough money to support a child?  Given, a husband can help,
but what if he is in a similar situation, or (worse) in med school?
       I'd appreciate any insights.
                                                Thanks,
                                                       Deb
