What can you expect from your local group?

Women over 40 who are trying to get pregnant, adopting, or have already become mothers, face a unique set of social and physical challenges, as well as benefits, to later motherhood.

A Child After 40 groups are for women and mothers to:

  • Share mutual support and companionship in facing those challenges.
  • Get together for social meet-ups or play dates with women and moms from their own generation!
