Menopausal New Mom

Menopausal New Mom
Debbie, a 48 year old mom-blogger from Canada, felt blessed to have her daughter (now 3-and-a-half) at 45. “It was a bit of a surprise” says Debbie. 

“Although I was not on birth control, I didn’t think it would be possible at 44 to get pregnant without medical intervention.”

Debbie feels there are significant benefits to being an older first time mom.

“I think that not being focused on ‘finding myself’ is a big benefit to her (Debbie’s daughter). At 45, I pretty much know who I am and don’t feel I have anything to prove to anyone. I’ve had the career, I’ve had the independence and didn’t marry until I was 44.”

But like the rest of us who have our children after 40, Debbie felt isolated — an experience that was compounded by living in a small town.

About a year ago, she “hit menopause” and that’s when she launched her blog, Menopausal New Mom.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
