What’s New with the Project
Our Mission is to provide support to women and couples who made the choice to start their family at age 35 or better.
In the September 2015, we will be launching a new program, one that supports women who have added children to their lives. This Women’s Circle will exist in Austin, Texas with programs for others outside of Austin to follow. Subscribe to our newsletter (list) for upcoming information or read more.
What Was Your Experience?…
Share Your Story with Our Nonprofit to Help Other Women. Donations Support our Research and Publishing.
Our research team continues to capture longer, more in-depth stories from advanced maternal age mothers like you. Our Nonprofit is bringing them to our international audience in narrative form, along with audio clips and photos of the women and their families. If you became a mother for the first time at age of 35 or later, we’d love to hear your story! We are now scheduling for individual sessions for in person and telephone interviews. Please complete our form (below) as a first step.
