Journalist needs help

Johanna wrote: I am researching a story about the very thing you wrote about on your blog. The fact that women undergoing menopause can still conceive (though it is more difficult) so they need to keep using birth control if they want to avoid a pregnancy.

I am looking to interview women who either had to deal with an unplanned pregnancy during perimenopause or were surprised to discover they still needed to use birth control. If you know of anyone willing to share their story, could you forward my contact information. Unfortunately, I am under the gun with my deadline. I have to submit the piece to my editor at the Wall Street Journal (it is a freelance story) by April 1. Can you help me?

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
