The response to what will be “historic” RTE radio 1 Joe Duffy’s Live line show coverage this month continues with many journalists continuing the conversation in the print media. Huge thanks to the Irish Examiner for bringing attention to the monthly Midlife Women Rock Cafes in their Saturday edition.
It was great to hear Dr Harry Barry GP and mental health care specialist mention Menopause on the Claire Byrne radio show. Furthermore, the well known mental health advocate Bressie had a very interesting discussion with Dr Sara Gottfield on menopause on one of his podcasts this week.
Sophie the Duchess of Wessex joined the conversation in the UK continuing to raise the profile and importance of this life stage.
These all help to bring down the generational walls of silence and smash the taboo surrounding this time in women’s lives.
I joined a super line up of speakers on a menopause seminar on line this morning organized by Galway based GP Dr Dilis Clare. A tool kit that can include any or all of the following nutrition, pilates, mindset shifts, herbs, HRT and coaching were included. Great feedback and much thought provoking discussion took place.
Knowledge truly is power where menopause is concerned.
