“True Faces” of Rising Number of Over-40 Moms Revealed

Angel LaLiberte, Founder, AChildAfter40.com

In a bid to dispel unfounded, negative stereotypes regarding maternal age, and uncover the real benefits to children of the dramatically rising population of women having babies after 40, AChildAfter40.com has today launched an Over-40 Mother’s Day Tribute Album in a free e-card and social media-friendly format.

A leading support website for later mothers, AChildAfter40.com (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com) says the “Mother’s Day Album: For All Women on the Journey of Motherhood Over 40” is set to reveal the true faces and authentic voices of the growing ranks of women creating “a mother of an evolution” at the very heart of the Western nuclear family.

 

Alleviating Social Stigma

 

To alleviate negative labels such as “selfish” or “advanced maternal age”, the album explores the realities of later motherhood through a series of candid mother and child portraits, frank commentary, and the personal stories of eight over-40 American mothers.

The Over-40 Mother’s Day Album E-Card is free and immediately available at AChildAfter40.com (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com) to share via email and social media, between now and Mother’s Day, 12th May 2013.

 

Countries Report Rising Numbers

Over the last decade, industrialized nations around the world have reported a growing surge in the number of women having babies after 40:

  • In 2010, the American Center for Disease Control (http://www NULL.cdc NULL.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr61/nvsr61_01 NULL.pdf) (CDC) reported that women giving birth over 40 had risen by 6%, while births in all other age groups had declined.
  • The UK has seen a 15% rise (http://www NULL.guardian NULL.co NULL.uk/society/2012/dec/06/surge-in-new-mothers-over-40) in births to over-40s in the last 5 years.
  • Other countries, like Canada, where births at 40+ have doubled (http://www NULL.statcan NULL.gc NULL.ca/pub/84f0210x/2008000/part-partie1-eng NULL.htm) since 1998, and Australia, where 1 in 4 babies (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Will%20older%20parents%20change%20the%20world NULL.pdf) are born to a mom over 35, have followed suit.

 

Unprecedented Challenges

The Real Challenges of Motherhood Over 40

According to AChildAfter40.com’s founder, Angel LaLiberte—who gave birth at 41 and 44, after conceiving naturally—women having babies after 40 face unprecedented challenges from declining fertility, pregnancy risks, social stigma, and the effects of aging for which they receive little empathy or support.

“With fast-paced developments in reproductive technologies, such as egg and ovarian tissue freezing, the rise in the number of women having children later will only continue to accelerate’, says LaLiberte.
