(http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/guest-blogs-mothers-over-4/guest-blogger/)Welcome to our first Guest Blog Month at FlowerPowerMom.com. Since late 2011, we’ve seen a real shift in media and public attention towards the subject of motherhood after 40 or even 50. The public has often had an intense response to media coverage that is sometimes limited in its scope information on the subject.

Growing interest has been international–FPM has been contacted by publications and television programs in the U.S., as well as Canada, the UK, Europe and even China who are scrambling to cover this subject. On our home turf, Dr. Oz, Anderson Cooper, and AARP have all filmed shows. I can assure you, a bouquet of documentaries is also on its way.

It would be safe to say that Lisa Miller’s controversial piece (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/motherhood-after-50/)in New York Magazine in 2011 did much to fan the embers of existing media fascination into flames, albeit, not always with the most supportive editorial outcome. But at least the dialogue has begun.

Since  2008, I’ve lived, breathed and dined out on the subject of later life motherhood. In that time, I’ve connected with some incredibly knowledgeable and accomplished experts in fields from fertility, pregnancy and birth, to parenting, menopause, aging, social issues.

Over February, I’m inviting many of these experts to share the fruits of their wisdom and help us to enhance the quality of our lives in respect of all aspects of later life motherhood.

Please feel welcome to share your point of view, debate or ask questions in the Comments section of each blog post. If you’d like to be a Guest blogger, or recommend an expert, please contact us at: editor at flowerpowermom dot com.
