In women’s reproductive health, the age of 35 seems to be rather significant. A ‘ripe old age’, if you will. It’s the number after which women are medically referred to as geriatric mothers and it’s long been considered as the age for a woman to be faced with a fertility cliff.
Research estimates about 60% of couples between 35 and 39 will conceive without assisted reproductive technology, but generally becoming pregnant will take longer than couples who are younger.
When a baby is born, so is a mother, and the birth of a mother can be more intense than childbirth.
You are here because you believe birth is about making mums too. Our modern western culture (or lack thereof) simply does not addresses how to support Newborn Mothers through this major life transition, as a rite of passage.

In addition to a lot of tender loving care, counselling and reassurance, it is important to have thorough investigations to try to understand the big question of why and why us?
There are natural steps you can both take to improve the chances of pregnancy. As the average age of first- time mothers continues to climb in Australia, so too do the number of couples facing difficulty getting pregnant.
