Overview

Better Late Than Never Baby : Becoming a Mother Later In Life by Serena Kirby

The number of Australian women having a baby later in life has tripled in the past 30 years and births to women over 40 have doubled in the past decade. Later life mothers are also the fastest growing demographic in Britain and the US and one quarter of Australian women who have a baby later, are doing so for the very first time. Serena's own Better Late Than Never Baby (a son) was born when she was 43. This book shares the story of the incredible odds he defied to get here and the unimaginable adventure that mid-life motherhood created. If you're about to become an older mother or in a position to support a new mid-life mum, this is the book for you. Thought-provoking and with splashes of humour, this invaluable resource covers a range of topics and tackles some questions that are highly relevant to later life mothers. * How will my age impact on my pregnancy and my baby?* Are all the medical risks relevant to me?* Will I find it harder to adjust?* What can I expect regarding fatigue and how can I reduce it?* Does my child need a sibling?* What about the MAD (Mature Age Dad)? This book is extensively researched, filled with valuable contributions from other older mothers, and brimming with practical, fresh and insightful advice.
