Founder of the “Go-To” Website for Expert Info, Motherhood Over 40

Against the odds and well into her forties, Angel La Liberte, BA (Hons) Psych, conceived and gave birth to two healthy children (in 2002 and 2005) without the aid of medical fertility treatments. She was soon drawn into the rising international cause célèbre in the baby-making stakes—widespread public criticism and misconceptions regarding the fast-growing population of women having children after the age of 40.

Background: Campaigner on Divorce Issues, UK, 1990’s

Following an early career in Healthcare Public Relations during the 1980’s and 90’s in the UK, Angel experienced a painful divorce from her first marriage at age 30. It soon led her to recognize a lack of social or government support during this period in Britain for the profound emotional and financial fallout that occurs for couples when marriages break down.

In 1993, she launched the first national support newsletter for people experiencing divorce in the UK.

Within 4 years, she was an experienced writer and public campaigner on divorce and relationship issues in the media limelight. Angel was a regular ‘guest expert’ handling live phone-ins on over 200 television and talk shows—including BBC and ITV news and breakfast programs—and leading newspaper and magazine features, in the UK through-out the 1990’s.

Following the rise of her national UK campaigning organization and magazine, Single Again, her book,Relationship Breakdown—A Survival Guide (Ward Lock, c. 1997), was published in the UK and Europe.

 

Advocate for the Rising Population of Mothers Over 40, 2009

Moving to California in 2007 to raise her family, Angel was strongly affected by the medical labeling, social stigma and emotional challenges faced by older mothers, and chose to ‘weigh in’ on the controversy by launching website—Flower Power Mom—The Truth About Motherhood After 40 (www.flowerpowermom.com) in October 2009.

Since then, Angel has written extensively, interviewing a broad range of experts, on key issues relating to motherhood after 40—from fertility and childbirth to social stigma and parenting in later life.

She has been regularly interviewed and featured in the USA and Canadian media, including several live appearances on CNN, and a broad range of radio programs and newspapers across the country, eg. WINS 1010 New York, KIRO Seattle, CBC The Current (national), Washington Times, Detroit Free Press, Minnesota Star Tribune, Baltimore Sun, and countless others. Click here for Media Coverage.

Launching Expert Forums for Women TTC or Parenting After 40, 2011

In May, 2011 she launched A Child After 40 (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/a-child-after-40-online/), the first online community to empower women on the journey of motherhood after 40–from natural conception, IVF, egg/sperm donation, surrogacy, and adoption, to midlife parenting, ageing and menopause. The launch included the first online discussion forums where experts and members could interact and deal with emotional “hot spots” regarding later motherhood.

AChildAfter40.com: The Authentic Voice of Motherhood After 40, 2012

In November 2012, Angel re-launched the website under www.AChildAfter40.com (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com), offering moms over 40 and women trying to conceive (naturally or via ART), or pregnant after 40 expert advice, online discussion forums, and an online magazine curating relevant articles from the internet. In June 2013, she launched A Child After 40 nationwide social and support groups (USA and Canada), offering women the opportunity to join, or start up their own, local group.

Angel continues to feature cutting edge online content from doctors, academics and qualified professionals from reproductive medicine, obstetrics, childbirth, parenting, and women’s issues. AChildAfter40.com (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com) is the established “go-to” website for reliable, expert information and support on motherhood after 40.

    I’m 44 with a wonderful 16 month old boy with no ivf. Hoping to have one more child. Looking for forum to talk about, share and support older moms in the physical challenges of childbirth later in life. The low estrogen in breastfeeding, hip pain and general body changes don’t get talked about and Id love to find some support from other experienced older moms. Any ideas out there?
    Thank you!
    Kirsten
