“True Faces” of Rising Number of Over-40 Moms Revealed
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 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.
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 are born to a mom over 35, have followed suit.
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.
