Menopause Awareness Session with Age UK Leicestershire and Rutland on 27th September 2023
As you stand on the threshold of a new life transition, gaining insight into menopause and its symptom management can pave the way for a smoother journey. Our recent “Moving towards Menopause” event, in partnership with Age UK Leicestershire and Rutland, aimed to provide you with the knowledge and support you need as you navigate this phase of life. 🌸
The event was a resounding success, as we had experts from Age UK’s MARS (menopause awareness raising service) come in and chat with the attendees on the what is menopause, it’s myths, symptoms, and how to deal with them.
Why was the event conducted?
Empowerment: Knowledge is indeed power, and our event was designed to empower you. By learning about menopause before it begins, you can confidently recognize the changes your body will go through and embrace this natural transition.
Preparedness: Armed with knowledge about what to expect during menopause, you are better equipped to proactively plan for managing symptoms, maintaining your overall well-being, and ensuring a smoother transition. Preparedness is key to a more comfortable journey.
Self-Care: One of the most significant advantages of understanding menopause is the ability to adopt self-care practices tailored to your unique needs. These practices can make your journey through menopause more comfortable and fulfilling.
MARS’ representatives also handed out great informative leaflets before the session, including a symptom tracker to help better understand this phase of a woman’s life. If you’d like to get your hands on them, please email email@example.com
