Jude, 53, met her boyfriend Kevin, who is 32 years her junior, seven years ago when he was in a relationship with her daughter. And today they are inseparable.

She can’t stop smiling as she details their sex life, claiming that ‘it’s amazing what falling in love can do for your self image’, however Kevin’s mother is significantly less enthusiastic about the love affair.

‘So she’s older than your mother… Oh, Kevin,’ she wails as the duo break the news of the relationship on camera’.

Then there’s Hattie, the 76 year old cougar looking for love.  She describes her life as ‘extreme’. In the show she meets 25-year-old Andrew while taking a dip in a hotel swimming pool, and later in the show is seen entertaining a young gentlemen admirer at dinner telling him ‘skin, I love skin.’

Stephanie, is the last self-described ‘extreme cougar’ to appear in the hour-long episode. You can’t help who you fall in love with: 65-year-old Stephanie as you coos at her  boyfriend Octavio 28.

Big Brooklyn Style Coming to TLC

 
Big Brooklyn Style Coming to TLC Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanAt 10pm on May 29th, TLC launches their new fasion show, Big Brooklyn Style. This series revolves around a small clothing business that caters to plus-size women.  It’s going to debut right after What Not To Wear at 9PM ET.
 
Stacy London is the executive producer of the new show that follows husband and wife business owners Lisa and Jim Dolan, as they revise and revolutionize the norms of plus-size shopping experiences in their Brooklyn clothing store, Lee Lee’s Valise. Each episode will focus on three different customers as their intimate shopping experience at the store, combined with Lisa’s distinctive clothing line, helps transform their lives.
 
The average size of an American woman is 14, but no average-sized American woman experiences a normal shopping experience at a typical fashion retailer as only 18% of clothes are a size 14 or over. At Lee Lee’s Valise, women of all shapes and sizes feel confident, fashionable and sexy through Lisa’s custom-made designs.
 
Through drama, laughs and a lot of tears, Lisa and her team will transform their customers’ wardrobe from shab to fab — all through the simple and personalized accommodations to fit and flaunt each unique body type. While Lisa and Jim have a strong opinion about each and every item in Lee Lee’s Valise, they always put the customer first. Often times the customer’s feedback and personal shopping experience plays a vital role in how Lisa designs her line and stocks her shop.
 
I think woman all over the country will be loving this show.

Pregnancy After 45 – When Do You Hang Up The Baby Booties?

By Dr. Jennifer Landa

Pregnancy after 45, Dr. Jennifer Landa - The Real Cougar WomanWith the recent miscarriage suffered by TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” star, Michelle Duggar, the risks of pregnancy after age 45 have stepped into the limelight. These days, many celebrities are having children at older ages and making it seem easy and the norm, but such a feat is not without significant risks.

The risk of miscarriage in general is high – one in seven pregnancies end in miscarriage, and with the ability to detect pregnancies at very early stages with at-home pregnancy tests, the true union of sperm and egg often ends in a miscarriage 60 to 70 percent of the time. After the age of 40, this risk increases to one in three pregnancies and by age 45 – one in two pregnancies will end in a miscarriage.

A number of factors contribute to this high-risk – the first being lower levels of progesterone. As a woman ages her hormone levels naturally decline.  Low progesterone makes the pregnancy at extreme risk for miscarriage because this hormone is responsible for supporting the embryo and growing fetus. Without adequate levels, that support to the fetus is non-existent and the pregnancy fails.

Genetic abnormalities, due to the eggs of an older female being…well, older – also contribute to the riskiness of the pregnancy. In an older egg, the risk of mistakes when the DNA is replicated skyrockets, putting the pregnancy or, ultimately, the baby at-risk. In this case, pregnancies that do make it term have a greater risk of producing a child with special needs.  This is something women should take into serious consideration when planning pregnancy after the age of 40.

Not only is pregnancy after age 45 risky for the baby, it can be a challenging situation for the mother-to-be as well. Gestational diabetes and pre-eclampsia are significant disease risks.  Both threaten the health and future health of the mother and the fetus. Pre-eclampsia is the number two cause of maternal death in the United States, primarily affecting pregnant women under 20 or over 40 years of age.

In the case of Michelle Duggar, her age was not her only risk factor – women who have had several children are at an even greater risk of premature delivery and postpartum bleeding.  After multiple deliveries, the uterus loses its muscle tone.  These muscles are essential to slowing and stopping bleeding after delivery – excessive bleeding following delivery can also lead to emergency surgery, hysterectomy or even – death.

Pregnancy is always a blessing and many women might argue that it is worth every risk to bear their own child, however, if you carefully examine the risks – it is not just the health of the mother that is affected – the baby’s entire life could be altered.  If you are planning to or do become pregnant at an older age, generally after age 35, talk to your doctor to minimize risks associated with your pregnancy.
