(http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Toronto-Sun NULL.jpg)This week, Canada’s largest newspaper publisher, Sun Media, featured our A Child After 40 Expert Q&A Forums in their Life Section.

Written by long-time Sun health columnist Marilyn Linton, the feature focused on the challenges of later life motherhood, including social isolation amongst younger mothers, coping with menopause and young children, and medical labels such as “Advanced Maternal Age”.

About FlowerPowerMom.com (http://www NULL.achildafter40 NULL.com/) and our new A Child After 40 community, Linton writes: “La Liberte’s empowering online community is thriving for several reasons…she welcomes older moms who conceived naturally, by IVF or adoption; she encourages older women who are struggling with infertility; and she shares the website with readers’ own stories.”

“She also organizes online forums – the current one, which runs all summer, offers readers a slew of guest experts on everything from mid-life fertility to adoption, aging and parenting.”

“You may say she has more in common with grandmothers than mothers, but the over-40 mom isn’t an oddity in the playground anymore. She’s part of what over-40 mom Angel La Liberte calls ‘a growing army.’ Indeed, statistics show that the percentage of births to women over 40 has more than doubled in the last two decades.”

We hope that Linton’s piece on A Child After 40 is just a beginning of a new, exploratory dialogue on the key issues relating to motherhood after 40.

Our next Forum is 9th—11th August: Parenting from Wisdom—When Older Parents Parent Newer Children with Dr. Don Saposnek, Clinical-Child Psychologist, Child Custody Mediator, Lecturer in Psychology, University of California, Santa Cruz.

    Excellent article! I especially like your comment, “Older moms have the benefit of a mother’s heart entwined with a grandmother’s wisdom.”
