‘Knowing I’m not alone has been a tremendous help’
The day before I was having a really low day mood-wise and starting to question my meaning, etc… so going to MSS was timely. It helped calm my mind to focus on the positive.
I went for a walk with my pal the next morning and we shouted MENOPAUSE at a field full of cows… we laughed and laughed. But we’re women all together in this. After MSS, I want to spread the word and talk more. That’s how we become informed.
I decided to go because I’ve met a lack of professional information about perimenopause from my GP. Thinking you are quietly going mad on your own is horrendous, but knowing I’m not alone has been a tremendous help.

I’m so excited to host this live event that brings together the top menopause experts to show every woman who attends that she is not alone.
I know only too well that the menopause journey can be a confusing and vulnerable experience, but once you’re armed with the essential knowledge we’ll be sharing during the event, and once you see how many other women out there are on the same journey as you, you’ll feel way more supported and empowered to succeed through your menopause.
