What’s New with the Project

It is Your Turn…Share Your Story to Help Other Women

Our research team has begun capturing longer, more in-depth stories from advanced maternal age mothers since late 2013. Our Nonprofit is bringing them to our international audience in narrative form, along with audio clips and photos of the women and their families.

We are now scheduling for individual sessions for in person and telephone interviews. Please complete our form (below) as a first step.
