We've had a request from a freelance journalist, Lauren Cumming, who is looking for a mum who is currently in her 40s and had her first child in her 20s. She is writing this for Best magazine.

Lauren says, “The piece will have three women in their 40s who started their families in different decades of their lives. It will be a light, fun piece. Anyone interested would need to be available for a short telephone interview.”

“We would need to send a photographer to take a photo of them and the child/children they had in their 20s and we'd also need them to provide a photo of themselves pregnant with their first child. We'd be able to offer a small fee for their time.”

If you'd like to share your story, or have any questions about the feature, please email Lauren on or give her a call on 0207 339 4590 with a brief summary of your story.

We at MNHQ don't have any further details about this and Lauren won't necessarily be monitoring this thread, so if you have any questions please contact the journalist directly.
