What do Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama all have in common? Yes, they’re all wives of major political figures, but they were all older when they started their families. Elizabeth Gregory’s new book explains why the trend of late motherhood is growing in America.

After the age of 35, Gregory noticed a trend among women — the start of motherhood.

Her new book, “Ready: Why Women are Embracing the New Later Motherhood,” researches the growing trend.
A “new late” mom herself, Gregory was able to incorporate real-life experiences into her book.

Gregory talks with Growing Bolder about why the biological clock is not reading the same time it was before and explains if there is a such thing as “too old” to become a new mother.
