We plan to continue our research and publishing in 2015, adding new resources for women and their care providers. As a tax-exempt organization (as of August 11, 2014), we are seeking to raise funds to support our organization and see it grow. Please Donate.
What Was Your Experience?…Share Your Story to Help Other Women
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.
We are particularly interested in (but you are not limited to sharing) the following…
- conscious choice to become a mother later for a variety of reasons
- losses, including miscarriage
- self-care and support received during pregnancy
- birth stories
- foster placement of a newborn, infant or young child
- adoption of a newborn, infant or young child
- early years of child’s life
- expert voices – stories from professionals who work with women of an advanced maternal age
Themes and Emotions of Your Story May Include One or More of the Following:
We are also very interested in having people from the birthing community (Doulas, Midwives, OB/Gyns, Maternity Nurses, Fertility Drs. and Therapists) share their professional opinions and anecdotes.
