Motherhood Later in Life

By Dr. B

I began my journey into motherhood at the age of 40. I quickly discovered that starting motherhood later in life was a lonely place. The truth is that I had very little in common with other mothers who had children my girls’ age, and that has not changed over time. It was apparent that mothers in my situation need a place they can find honesty, a place where perfection is not required, a place where you don’t need to feel alone. If you were looking for that place, you have found it!
