I began my journey into motherhood at the age of 40. I quickly discovered that starting motherhood later in life was a lonely place. The truth is that I had very little in common with other mothers who had children my girls’ age, and that has not changed over time. It was apparent that mothers in my situation need a place they can find honesty, a place where perfection is not required, a place where you don’t need to feel alone. If you were looking for that place, you have found it!

New mom later in life? You're not alone!

My wife and I got into our late thirties and realized we'd forgotten to have kids. (Don't let that happen to you - keep a to do list!) We now have two kids in their twenties, but when I kids were growing up, we always seemed like the oldest parents. This show is for folks like us who are discovering parenthood a bit later than your peers - you are not alone and you have a valuable perspective on parenthood. Listen and enjoy this gem of a show!

Maybe it’s not too late?

I don’t have kids yet but have been thinking about adopting in mid-life.
This show is very encouraging! Highly recommend!

I am impressed by the honesty in this podcast!

Dr B nails it...she describes herself as determiend, focused, and direct. She does speak her mind and tells the truth about being an older Mom. I have several friends, and a few members in my retired women's club, who embarked on motherhood after turning 40. If you're one of those, you'll totally relate to this podcast!!
