This is a post taken from social media this month.

As International Women’s Day approaches on the 8th of March,
#choosetochallege is the theme for 2021.

I am interviewed  by the lovely Janine Kennedy from Irish Country magazine. We discuss the work I do in tackling the taboo around menopause.

I choose to challenge the stereotypes and old story around this time in women’s lives, a story that has limited, disempowered, and disenfranchised too many midlife women for decades. I believe it’s time  to bring menopause into the 21st century, remove the silence and stigma and tell the truth about this life transition.

Its time to tell a NEW STORY. Opening conversations, sharing stories changes lives and will enable us explode the outdated taboo.
What or who are you choosing to challenge this month?

What women are saying

  • Now that I have the knowledge, language and confidence to speak openly about menopause, it changes everything

  • Silence afflicts too many women's lives – the silence that keeps women from expressing themselves freely, from being full participants even in the lives of their own families

  • I highly recommend this 6-week course to any woman wanting to understand menopause and themselves. I personally found it brilliant. It gave me back my confidence in myself. I met a group of open-minded women. There is nowhere women can go to talk with other women about this time in our lives. I have learned not to let menopause define me. I always had thought of it negatively, would never have seen it as a time to open up to new possibilities and opportunities. Breeda covers everything you need to know over the 6 weeks.”

  • This programme has helped me become more relaxed and empowered around menopause. I have a great GP and am taking HRT. It’s the information sharing with a group of like-minded women that is very powerful at this time of my life. The course was shared by Breeda in a fun and light-hearted way which reduces any stress or anxiety that one may have. I now have a better understanding of myself with lots of strategies to manage symptoms and would highly recommend this course.”

  • I would highly recommend this 6-week course. I received so much support from Breeda and the group. It gave me the confidence to move forward. I learned about the physical, mental and spiritual changes that occur during menopause and it all made so much sense. My relationship with myself has grown and I understand so much more now. I feel positive and very optimistic about the future.

  • Attending this 6 week course was a hugely empowering experience. knowledge and education is certainly power. Meeting other women all in the same phase of life supporting one another was fantastic. I learned I have the power and strength to tackle, control and handle my menopause journey my way. I would hghly recommend this course so much. It has enabked me to move forward.

  • Before I met Breeda and started this course, I never had a serious conversation about menopause with anyone. I had very little knowledge about menopause. It is either an embarrassing or a comical subject for conversation. Attending the cafes and 6-week course has been life changing. I now know so much more about menopause and understand myself so much better. I have become more pro-active with my health and am looking forward to the next phase of my life. Every woman deserves this information.

  • Breeda has a great way of imparting information. I really enjoyed the 6-week programme and would highly recommend it to any woman who may be curious about what menopause is really all about.
