We’re better prepared for pregnancy. I’d never suggest that younger moms don’t want and love their babies. But we older moms are far less likely to have an unexpected or unplanned pregnancy so we have plenty of time and focus to get our lives ready for baby. I confess: I bought my daughter her first stuffed animal before I was even pregnant and we bought, and renovated, our home with a baby’s room in mind long before I saw two solid blue lines on the pee test!
