Writing Books Harder Than Changing Diapers For 58-Year-Old New Mom

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What a difference a year makes – especially if you’re a 58-year-old woman who gave birth to twins last year.

On November 9, 2004, Aleta St. James became the oldest woman to give birth to twins – also her first children. Since then, the New York-based “emotional healer and life coach” has been adjusting her busy life to motherhood.

Surprisingly, it hasn’t been as hard as some predicted. She says parenting comes naturally even though she admits, “I never thought I’d be a single parent.”

In fact, she says writing her new book, Life Shift (Fireside) was harder than dealing with 2 a.m. feedings and diaper changing because, as she puts it, “it required me to communicate metaphysical principles in common language.”

St. James admits some people might consider her “selfish” to have kids at an age when other people are retiring but points out that having kids at a young age is no guarantee you’ll be around them for a long time.
