What's a woman to do when she's facing menopause, toddlers, and elder care all at the same time? Women who have "been there and done that" provide some insight in MIDLIFE MOTHERHOOD. Offering humour, warmth and frankness, this is a handholding guide for the uninitiated. What's on their minds: * Common fears and concerns: from Down's syndrome to being too old * Fertility challenges and what to physically expect from pregnancy * How to juggle postpartum demands - parenting, working, caring for ageing parents...all at once! * Getting back into shape * Hot flashes and warm bottles: coping with hormonal changes while caring for a new baby
