Millions of mothers between 40 and 60 years old are about to face childless households for the first time in decades. For some women, it can be a lonely time but for the vast majority, it’s a journey of joy and discovery. Research results have revealed why some mothers thrive and others do not. It can be broken down into three stages: grief, relief, and joy. If a woman makes it through the final stage, friendships blossom, work thrives and she develops a renewed sense of confidence and well-being. For most mothers, this next stage of life is one to look forward to. Today, research is confirming that the ‘empty nest’ syndrome isn’t so empty after all.
