Sharing Our Perspectives: Feedback from Jennifer I.

We pose a two questions to first-time moms of age 35 or better to see the range of perspectives and ideas that women across the country have on the core topic of this website and upcoming book.

Sharon: How did you react to getting the Advanced Maternal Age stamp on your medical chart (or having that label applied to you) What did it mean to you, if anything?

Jennifer I.: It meant that I truly was older. I didn’t think I was until I saw that on my chart. It made me think, uh-oh, something could go wrong with this delivery/pregnancy because I am older.

Sharon: Do you identify yourself as an “Older Mom”? If yes, what does that mean to you?

Jennifer I.: Yes.  It means I am tired. It also means I have wisdom to share with my kids and experience to teach them more.

Share your thoughts – we’d love to hear from you
