If you just do one thing today, World Menopause Day, make this it.
Today is World Menopause Day so I am delighted to share another resource that I hope will go some way to filling the chasm that is menopause knowledge and information.
Di Danzebrink was a guest on Pippa Gordon’s “Inside my Wardrobe” mental health podcast recently.
Says Pippa: “Our hormones have for many years been subjected to shameful jibes however, they are immensely powerful and the driving force behind so much of who we are, hence the title of this episode. The thing is, they also change as we transition into the next phase of our lives around our mid/late 40s and when they begin to change, we can find the impact on our emotional, mental and physical health to be a huge shock to the system if we aren’t informed about what to expect.
Di Danzebrink recorded this online chat recently with dog trainer Jordan Shelley and Sarah McLaren who suggested menopause as a subject for Jordan’s open hour project after her symptoms had a debilitating on her own professional and personal life.
Ahead of next Sunday’s World Menopause Awareness Day, the Sun newspaper has spoken to three women who were driven to despair in their forties by their misdiagnosed menopause. Our own Diane Danzebrink and Dr.Louise Newson are also quoted in the article.
Join Sophie Claus and Di Danzebrink in this episode as we discuss a groundbreaking new menopause book, “MBoldened: Menopause Conversations we all need to have” and fill you in on our recent weekend away.
Diane and Katie discuss the background to The Latte Lounge & The Menopause Support Network, The #Makemenopausematter campaign and fundraiser, and our World Menopause Day event on Oct 18th 8pm with Dr Avrum Bluming
I was contacted about contributing to this important work last year and accepted without hesitation when I heard about the aims of the project. This book brings together menopause perspectives from all walks of life from women around the world. There are many brilliant voices in the book, all passionate about improving the menopause experience.
World Menopause Day is coming soon on the 18th of October and we would love to have the campaign message all over social media that day – which is where all followers of this site come in!
