The Midlife Midwife™ 

bio portrait  

The transition from Maiden and Mother to Queen can be a difficult one, fraught with hard lessons and lots of loss. It takes great determination and courage to confront and embrace the changes brought about by the midlife passage.


It can be really helpful during this confusing time to have the inspiration, advice and encouragement of a counselor/coach/mentor - someone who has been there and done that and is ready to help you do the same.


Queen Mama Donna offers upbeat, practical and ceremonial guidance for individual women and groups who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching, influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity.

Hail Queens!







In the unforgettable last scene of director Shekhar Kapur's movie, Elizabeth, Elizabeth Tudor is shown preparing to ascend to a troubled throne. As she engages in an elaborate toilette - a sacred personal ceremony before her public coronation - she symbolically divests herself of all physical remnants of her early life as a maiden and washes herself spiritually clean.  


She cuts off her girlish tresses and dresses her remaining hair, helmet-like, in rows of tight-to-the-head spiral curls reminiscent of the hive-crowned Bee Goddess of Neolithic Europe. She discards her pastels and chiffons and dons a majestic garment with girth and weight.  


Finally, she covers her face in a thick layer of impenetrable white paste, a blank slate, a power mask. In the process of getting dressed she becomes her Self, Elizabeth the First. Transformed and protected, she steps into her destiny: The Virgin Queen, beholden to none.



What woman doesn't easily identify with the powerful metaphor of changing her hair, her wardrobe, or her general countenance at critical junctures in our lives? The external change can celebrate and illustrate an alteration of attitude or circumstance that we have completed, a transformation from the inside out. Or we can effect a change as a reminder or incentive to goose along a desired transformation that we are trying to achieve, a change from the outside in.


While changing our hair, our image, our demeanor, might seem superficial, it can represent symbolically the full range of changes - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual - that we are experiencing, changes that mark our entry into a new phase of our lives.


I send you regal blessings of the Queen of You, 


Dressing for Power

Trappings is an artwork by Tiffany Ludwig and Renee Piechocki who call their collaboration Two Girls Working.

Trappings includes a book by the same name as well as exhibitions that ask women to respond to the question: What do you wear that makes you feel powerful?

While the project begins with a question about clothing, the project is not about fashion and to a large extent is not even about clothing. Through its multiple parts, Trappings ignites conversations about the meaning and expression of power.

Here are some of the featured women and their answers:


"In the turquoise dress anything could happen"
- Peggy Shumaker 

"You have to be somebody to rock this shoe and this purse and the good power navy suit."

- Amelia Michelle Joiner

"When I put this hat on, every thing goes calm inside. It's like, it's almost like a mantra. OK. Now we're working and my mind is at peace and I can remember exactly where I was. So, it's kind of a magical hat."

- Ciel Bergman

"This is an outfit given to me as a Christmas present by a former employer. And it came from New York. It makes me feel good. It makes me feel like a proud, black woman. Strong. And I am."

- Marion Jones Brooks 



"A real important statement for me is that my hair is gray even though it might make me look older. I feel like it's really me and what I've become
-Sara Peller

Old is the New Black

The botoxed, pinched, pulled, starved look for aging women is on the decline and there seems to be a new appreciation of women who are aging naturally and gracefully. These are true beauties and there are now many admirable role models for us.

And all, of a sudden there there is also a growing trend for fashion models of a certain age, as well. This is partly due to the obvious fact that women really do look better the way we are. But there is also the recognition that we Baby Boomers are a gigantic consumer group with lots of money to spend and a desire for fashions that fit and flatter us.

One major fashion house after another is jumping on the beautiful older woman band wagon and using authentic and honorable role models in their ads as well as on the runways.

This past January, French fashion house Céline set the Internet abuzz with the release of its spring 2015 print campaign. The ads quickly went viral, blazing a path across Instagram, Twitter, and the blogosphere before hitting The New York Times, Forbes and The Atlantic. At the center of all the attention was the face of the campaign: 80-year-old author Joan Didion.

Are we experiencing a cultural shift in the way we view aging?

Two days later, French luxury label Saint Laurent debuted another eye-catching ad featuring 71-year-old Joni Mitchell.
Iris Apfel 

Not to be outdone, Kate Spade and jewelry designer Alexis Bittar rolled out campaigns featuring 93-year-old style legend Iris Apfel. A short time later, L'Oréal announced that it had signed 65-year-old '60s icon Twiggy as its latest brand ambassador, joining 69-year-old Helen Mirren.

These are only the  latest members of a sorority of seniors being tapped by major brands, with earlier trailblazers including Jessica Lange, 65, for Marc Jacobs Beauty; Charlotte Rampling, 69, for Nars; Catherine Deneuve, 71, for Louis Vuitton; and Anjelica Huston, 63, for Gap. The trend has led many to wonder whether the notoriously youth-obsessed world of fashion and beauty is finally accepting - even embracing-women of a certain age.

According to consultancy A.T. Kearney, people over 60 make up the fastest growing group of consumers in the world. In 2000, the 60-plus population globally was 600 million; by 2010, it had swelled to 800 million, and by 2050 it is expected to hit 2 billion.

At the same time, there's been a cultural shift in how we view aging. While the heavily Botoxed look still rules in some quarters, "there's more of an acceptance in the wellness world about being comfortable in your own skin," says Darroch. "Women are more comfortable saying, 'I'm aging gracefully and
Joan Didion 
I'm OK with it.
I don't need to try to be young and I don't want that stereotype reinforced.'"

Both Friedman and Darroch raise the possibility that this trend could alienate younger consumers. And yet, old age is, to a degree, in vogue among the young. The blog Advanced Style, which spotlights fashionable older women, has become a phenomenon among millennials. Celebrities like Kelly Osborne, Nicole Richie and Kylie Jenner have dyed their locks gray. And many of those posting pictures of Joan Didion's Céline campaign all over Instagram hadn't even been born when her book The White Album was first published.

"Personal style and fearlessness are attractive regardless of age," says Mary Beech, CMO of Kate Spade, whose spring 2015 campaign featured a group of women that included Apfel alongside 22-year-old model Karlie Kloss. "Iris has this incredible confidence and bravado that you would envy at any age, and the fact that she has continued to showcase that in various aspects of her life, I think people really look up to that and want to emulate that," says Beech.

Cultural and economic reasons aside, there is also a novelty factor at play here. "Certainly if a brand perennially used women over 60 in their ads, it would be less interesting," observes Friedman. "But if you go from using 18-year-olds to a 75-year-old, that's going to make people stop and pay attention." 


Helena Norowicz
"I think that this trend is going to get bigger, I really do," says Darroch. "If women maintain the career choices that they are training for, and if society supports them in such a way that they can progress through those careers without having to take a back seat, then they will become even more economically
important as they get older. And that will make companies pay attention."



Helena Norowicz, 81, Polish theater actress was just  discovered by designers and photographers and has just started working as a model at the age of 81. These pictures were just featured in Elle Magazine, Poland.

 Inevitably, the novelty will wear off. But even if many brands return to the usual pool of 20-something models, not all will. At least not the smart ones. Kate Spade, for one, plans to continue its multigenerational approach for the foreseeable future. "In our fall campaign, you'll see an equally diverse mix of backgrounds and ages," says Beech, adding, "This is definitely a marathon for us, not a sprint.

At L'Oréal-where CEO Jean-Paul Agon sees mature women as "a new and gigantic opportunity for our company," according to an interview he did last year with The Financial Times. Sexagenarians Helen Mirren and Twiggy are just getting started. 
Joni Mitchell

Portions  of this piece are quoted from Ad Week.  
Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. 
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size 
But when I start to tell them, 
They think I'm telling lies. 
I say, 
It's in the reach of my arms 
The span of my hips, 
The stride of my step, 
The curl of my lips. 
I'm a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That's me.

I walk into a room 
Just as cool as you please, 
And to a man, 
The fellows stand or 
Fall down on their knees. 
Then they swarm around me, 
A hive of honey bees. 
I say, 
It's the fire in my eyes, 
And the flash of my teeth, 
The swing in my waist, 
And the joy in my feet. 
I'm a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered 
What they see in me. 
They try so much 
But they can't touch 
My inner mystery. 
When I try to show them 
They say they still can't see. 
I say, 
It's in the arch of my back, 
The sun of my smile, 
The ride of my breasts, 
The grace of my style. 
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman, 
That's me.

Now you understand 
Just why my head's not bowed. 
I don't shout or jump about 
Or have to talk real loud. 
When you see me passing 
It ought to make you proud. 
I say, 
It's in the click of my heels, 
The bend of my hair, 
the palm of my hand, 
The need of my care, 
'Cause I'm a woman 
Phenomenal woman, 
That's me.

- Maya Angelou  

Everything Goes!

In response to the last issue on clothes, a sister Queen sent me a link to Advanced Style, a visual blog by photographer Ari Seth Cohen.

He roams the streets of New York City and beyond  photographing fabulously stylish and creative older folks.

He says, "Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.

I have become addicted! I check it every morning for the latest celebration of fabulousness.

The Queen's Court is a gathering of sovereign women of a certain age - our dear peers - who graciously offer information, guidance, inspiration and encourage- ment to each other.


We Queens know what we know. And we know a great deal. Our experience has made us wise. So, feel free to consult with our cyber council/counsel when you are need of sage advice or wish to explore a particular topic of interest.  


I asked this question last month:


Q. How do YOU express the Queen of Your Self though dress? Please participate by sending me your experiences and pictures.


A. I'm with you. I wear whatever I feel and have discovered that now that I am over 60, I need to wear a LOT more jewelry at once than I ever did in the past!!

- Cat, MN

Letters in response to the MARCH 2015 Issue:


OMG, I so loved this newsletter! What a great, great story, and how awesome to give women permission to dress up at any age! Thank you for the lovely reminders.

- Cat, MN


LOVE your Hail Queens column! :) Regal Goddess Blessings from one who NEVER acts her age :)

- D'vorah, CA



- Linda, NY


Love the Chronicles!!!! This one was particularly good!

- Nancy, NC


I also love to dress up, but after reading this I think I can add more pizzazz to my outfits. I like the idea of playing dress up like I used to. What fun!

- Carolyn, OH


The idea of being an older woman in polyester pants suits or warm up suits really scares me. I can see why so many women fall into that path of least resistance. You don't need to iron poly. And Gym clothes are so comfortable. But really, I am determined to keep up my Queenly demeanor.

- Sheila, MA

These Chronicles are always fascinating. Can't wait to see what you will come up with next.
- Sherlie, AL


Please keep your letters coming. And do feel free to make suggestions about content you would like to see. Or anything else, for that matter.

Please send your good news, achievements, accomplishments, successes and celebrations so that our international circle of sovereign sisters can send you blessings and accolades.

And we are glad to so. It is a joy and a privilege to share in the fortune of another woman. I recently heard Oprah say the saddest thing ever - "The hardest thing about being successful is having someone to be glad for you."

It takes a centered and confident Queen to break that pattern. There are 60 million thrones out there. One for each of us. There is plenty of purpose, passion and power for us all. May we use it well!
