You are not thinking this through.

Can you think of any reason a world based on nanotech would not allow
people to be as rich as they wished?  I.e., the economic drain of
having children will vanish.

The world I set the clinic seed in had a population problem.  But that
was because the uploaded life was more desirable than the physical
world for most people.  The "powers that be" of that era were trying
to maintain a physical state population of humans (why was unstated)
but having a hard time doing so.
