Share your experience of being a mum over 35

Welcome to Other Mums Lives Matter.

We all lead totally different lives and have different views on ‘advanced maternal age’, ‘geriatric pregnancy’ and being classed as ‘high-risk’. Perhaps I’m a little over-sensitive having been through it all!

I began my blog with the notion to empower women 40+, but I’ve come to realise that ladies far younger have also been told they were ‘high-risk’ due to their age.

This is a platform for  those mums who are willing to share their experiences of what it’s like, so others can benefit from their experience.

I’m doing it because I found very little positive support in Cyberspace when I was pregnant at 40. I could have done with knowing there were others out there the same age, sharing similar experiences.

In return, if you’re also a mumpreneur, tell us about it and we’ll happily promote your story on our blog, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media platforms.
