Welcome to Geriatric Mum Blog

This blog is a celebration and a source of inspiration for mums who happen to be older, and for those of us who are mid-lifers. I became a third-time mother at 43 and have been sharing my story online to help others. Here I share a bit of my personal journey, real-life interviews and more. If you’d like to connect, feel free to email me here
