The age demographic of Ireland’s and the UK’s workforce is changing.

By 2030 it is estimated that there will be 1.3 billion menopausal and post- menopausal women in the world. Thus prioritization of health and prevention of disease is vital at midlife.

Midlife and menopausal women make up the fastest growing cohort at work. Thus, information, understanding and support is vital for employers, organisations, and employees.

8 in every 10 menopausal women are currently at work.

Menopause work policies are increasing rapidly throughout the U.K. having started initially within the U.K. police force. Irish women at work deserve the same support.

Delighted to have been invited to present to Worldline Global UK this week as part of #menopauseintheworkplace. It was inspiring to see so much interaction, contribution and inquiry along with many men in attendance.

Menopause impacts everyone, women, partners, families, work colleagues and society. Let’s keep talking. Opening and normalizing the conversation will change everything.

Until next time

Stay safe

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.”

    Jennifer

  • 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.
