Are you a woman approaching or in middle life?

Do you sometimes feel you have lost your way?

Do you sometimes wonder who you are?

Are you living the life you want, or the life other people want for you?

Fed up with being just someone else’s mother, wife, employee, daughter?

Do you feel confused or uncertain about your future?

Do you feel it might be time to become YOU?

If this is you, read on…

Welcome to the
Butterfly Club

It is increasingly recognised that most women go through a midlife transition around the ages of 45 to 55.

This can be a disturbing experience with many things changing, including our bodies.

With so much going on in our busy lives, we can become anxious, stressed, even frightened, about what the future holds.

The Butterfly Club brings together and supports women who are at all stages of their midlife journey.

If this is you, our aim is to give you

Clarity about what is happening to you.

Confidence that you can take control and change the things in your life you want to

Certainty that you know who are and there is a bright future for you on the other side.


Hello, my name is Jean Macdonald

I am known as the Midlife Midwife because I help midlife women reinvent themselves for the second half of their lives.

I began my mission by writing my book Love Sex and the Midlife Woman. I quickly realised midlife women face issues that go far beyond intimate relationships. These include Health, Wealth, Confidence and Family.

We call ourselves the Midlife Butterfly Club because the woman’s midlife transition is like the journey made by a Caterpillar to become a Butterfly. It is inevitably uncomfortable but with a beautiful outcome.

Our aim is to provide you with information, guidance, and inspiration to support you going through your ‘Midlife Transition’. In addition,  you can  listen to and learn from other women who have successfully navigated their own midlife transition.

If you are a woman in middle life feeling confused and isolated, then join us to gain clarity about what is happening to you, confidence that you can deal with it, and certainty you can create a bright future for yourself.

I look forward to meeting you in the Butterfly Club.

Love Jean x

Our Purpose & Manifesto

The Midlife Butterfly Club aims to Wake the Woman Within and release the energy and talent locked up in midlife women, which our society doesn’t yet recognise or value.

As the Dalai Lama says, the best hope for the western world is its women.

Together we can change our society for the better!

What Our Members Say About Us

I am so thankful for the Midlife Butterfly Club. I now know that what I am going through is normal and that there is support out there. It’s nice to talk to other woman who know exactly what I am going through.

The Midlife Butterfly Club is exactly the support I need while I find myself wondering where I’m going and what the heck I’m here for at the age of 50!! It is very reassuring to be in touch with others who are going through it too.

The Midlife Butterfly Club  offers us the support and knowledge we need as midlife women.  As a retired teacher,  I know the value of correct knowledge. “Knowledge is Power” was first written in 1668 in the book Leviathan by T. Hobbes.

You also get recordings of interviews with women who have successfully negotiated their midlife transition. These are available as audio tracks to download to your phone and listen to while doing other things.

Our Meet the Experts pages connect you with specialists in areas that midlife women must deal with either now or in the future.  I interview all our Experts and recordings of their interviews are available to you as podcasts so you can listen to them on your phone while driving or walking your dog.

In the Resource Centre you will find articles, features, videos, and interviews to get the guidance and support you need to deal with issues that are bothering you. You can ask our Experts or me for guidance.

Personal Attention – When you became a Platinum Member,  you will have the opportunity to review your personal situation and needs and discuss them with me or another Tutor.  I am offering each new Platinum member an hour of my time to review where you are now and look at ways you can move forward.
