The transition through to menopause is a significant marker in a woman’s life.
It affects different women in different ways, and can be accompanied by a range of physical and emotional impacts.
Let’s Talk Menopause is a community conversation that will be held at the Byron Theatre on March 10, from 5–7pm, and brings together four women and their expertise on the topic.
Host Mandy Nolan will be in conversation with Dr Jane Reffell, a general practitioner who specialises in women’s health, Michelle Loschiavo, a senior compounding pharmacist, and Muriele Tesauri, the founder of Wholesome Lives.
Their different persepectives and areas of expertise create an opportunity for these women to share their knowledge about how women can prepare themselves physically, emotionally, mentally, and also spiritually, for the menopause journey.
‘As our hormone levels change, we move from the reproductive phase of our lives to the next phase of our lives, often called the productive phase,’ the group said in a press release.
Let’s Talk Menopause is the first in a series of informed conversations held by The Community Hub, in collaboration with the Byron Community Centre.
‘We are excited about the opportunity to present Let’s Talk Menopause, together with the Byron Community Centre,’ says Sabine Muschter, founder of The Community Hub.
Proceeds from Let’s Talk Menopause will go to the Feel Good Fridays project, run by the Byron Community Centre. It’s a weekly opportunity for disadvantaged women to access support and improve wellbeing.
