The Joy of Later Motherhood: Encouragement, Truth, and Wisdom for YOUR journey.

From Doom and Gloom to Hope and Possibility!

Have You Ever:

  • Googled “pregnancy over 35” or "conceiving a child over 40" for helpful advice and inspiration on your way to motherhood?
  • Felt your excitement and hope turn into disbelief and shock by the roughly 60 million websites your search turned up full with negative headlines and anxiety producing stories?
  • Felt discouraged by all the statistics on increased risks and dangers of later pregnancies and the staggering rise of infertility?
  • Been deeply saddened because your dream of a natural pregnancy and healthy baby at your advanced maternal age was just shattered into pieces?
If so, you've come to the right place.

This growing online community and the up-coming book "The Joy of Later Motherhood - Your Natural Path to Healthy Babies Even in Your 40s" are the much-needed antidote to all the negative hype surrounding mature motherhood.

I, Bettina Gordon-Wayne, journalist and enthusiastic first time mom at 40+, believe: 

  • It's time we women ditch the current doom and gloom narrative around mature motherhood - that's really not helping anybody to conceive and thrive in motherhood, is it? - and focus instead on hope, possibilities and all the things that can go right with our bodies!
  • We need a hub for positive news, advice and honest human-to-human connections. On my personal journey, I truly longed for encouraging news and actionable advice for a more holistic approach to pregnancy and motherhood instead of just "cold-hard-facts". 
  • It's time to talk openly and share deeply. When I was pregnant I would have loved to read stories about the experience of other older moms and how they dealt with challenges like infertility, miscarriages, or their fears of birth. 

Since I could not find what I wanted, I created it. Over the course of the last three years, I have used my 25 years of experience as an international journalist to study and research the topic of later motherhood here in the U.S. and in Europe. I put my research into good use: I wrote a book (please see the endorsements below) and founded this website,

the hub for all of us mature women who seek to move into motherhood from a position of courage and strength!


This is a great place to put your CTA that you have been building towards in your video.
