For the first time this year the doors are opening to be mentored by me personally.
I am a mom, journalist, and author of the bestselling book The Joy of Later Motherhood.
In this book I share the stories and advice of women over 40 who all had natural pregnancies and healthy babies to show other women of “advanced maternal age” what is possible and, in fact, perfectly natural.
I love to support women who - like I was - are contemplating motherhood later in life. I had my boy at age 44 so I know all about the "ageism" that's prevalent around us and the pressures put on us women to have our children at an age most other women have them - and not when the time is right for US.
The pressure and "Get on it, the clock is ticking!" messages come from media articles, statistics, Google searches, from well-meaning friends and family, but also from judgmental Doctors who often criticize us harshly for "having waited so long" and wo want us to do in-vitro-fertilization ("Your best chance at your advanced age!") right away.
Which is especially upsetting if you have not even met the right partner yet, isn't it?
Or if you are not even sure if you want to become a mother - let alone are ready to actually conceive.
Regardless of where we are in life, with every passing birthday many of us start to wonder:
I see myself as your “Mature Motherhood Mentor” and my role is to guide and support you to experience hope and joy (again) on your journey and to listen to your inner wisdom as you make decisions that are best for you.
As a certified mental strength trainer my expertise is with our beautiful and often mysterious minds that hold power over our bodies and our ability to conceive. It's called the Biology of Belief and it is real.
(I know first hand how powerful our minds can be because my own contradictory thoughts kept me from getting pregnant for a whole year.)
As a mentor and trusted guide, my intention is to help you identify - with crystal clarity - what’s keeping you from having the family you want. And then moving past your blocks.
Regardless of where you’re starting from, my goal is to help you:
"Pregnancy after 40 can be a joyful and healthy experience, despite what so many women are led to believe. Bettina Gordon-Wayne lays out the territory to later motherhood with wisdom and knowledge."
While I do offer one-off consultations I can generally help women more when we work together for at least 3 sessions. This allows me to get to know you better and be more effective in my work with you. I also believe that a mentor - a person who herself experienced what you are struggling with or thriving for - is more than a coach. I'll be your confidant, cheerleader and sister-friend if you'd like me to be. I strongly believe in supporting women which you surely know if you read The Joy of Later Motherhood and I love what I do!
Please note: a mentor is different to a counselor or therapist. We will talk about what brought you to where you are today but instead of focusing on the past and possible dysfunction (that's the counselor's domain) we will focus on the future and how to design your path in the way you desire!
Since this is the first time this year I am offering my personal services again, I've significantly lowered my price structure for this community and will offer these prices until the year's end before it will go up to my usual rates in 2019. So take advantage of either my single or package rate:
All sessions will happen via Skype or phone, or if you’re in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area we can meet for coffee or to go for a walk.
You have questions around my offering? Or around later motherhood? Then let's jump on a 20 minute phone call and see what I can offer you. Free of charge, of course. Book here:
