Description

Midlife is often seen as the beginning of the end and life only goes downhill from here but midlife women have so much more to offer the world than to sit and wait patiently for old age to hit. This podcast is all about the important matters in life and how we, as midlife women, can make a difference in the world. Whether you’re a mother or not, you care about the people around you. Whether you’re married or not, your life is filled with relationships that change over time. Join Karen O’Connor and her guests each week as we talk about the largely untapped resource of midlife women, their strengths, their experiences and how we can use that to make a changes in our world. And, by the way, this all sounds very serious and deep but there’s a lot of laughter and poking of fun goes on in these episodes. If you can’t laugh at yourself, you’re in really deep doo doo!

Why does it seem like there’s a motherhood elite that makes some mothers put others down?
