Show Notes

In the UK, 13 million women are going through a menopause, which can last anything up to 15 years. In the US, 6,000 women hit the menopause every single day! So it’s not exactly a niche subject, yet, it’s not something we easily talk about either. This means that many midlife women can feel isolated and worried by a range of symptoms they hadn’t expected which can disrupt their life.

The good news is that the Positive Pause team have made it their business to bust the menopause taboo and provide practical and accessible advice to midlife women. In this episode, I’m joined by Jo McEwan, one of the founders of the Positive Pause website which is an incredibly helpful resource, full of information to help you navigate the menopause minefield.

Feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by the lack of practical and user-friendly information available when they hit the perimenopause themselves, the Positive Pause team set to work to create a site that would inform, reassure and entertain women experiencing the perimenopause and the menopause. It’s really interesting to hear about Jo’s journey and the challenges she faced

We have a frank discussion about all matters meno- and peri-menopausal, why it's important to lay the groundwork for a healthy menopause in your early forties and the vast range of different symptoms and what you can do about them.
