    WHAT’S UP WITH WOMEN’S SEXUAL HEALTH & FERTILITY?

    WHAT’S UP WITH WOMEN’S SEXUAL HEALTH & FERTILITY?

    Our guest, Dr. Lauri Brotto, is a professor in the UBC Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and a registered psychologist. She is the executive director of the Women’s Health Research Institute of BC located at BC Women’s Hospital and holds a Canada Research Chair in Women’s Sexual Health. She is the director of the UBC Sexual Health Laboratory where research primarily focuses on developing and testing psychological and mindfulness-based interventions for women with sexual desire and arousal difficulties and women with chronic genital pain.



    On this episode we will be discussing our favourite topic of all: Sex!

    We chat with Dr. Brotto about the pandemic's effect on sex with a partner (and without), dwindling libidos post-kids (good times), reframing the brain as the main sexual organ (especially for the ladies), arousal and desire in men vs. in women, arousal and fertility, and more!

    This episode was created in partnership with the Women's Health Collective Canada in order to help raise awareness about the gap in women's health research. Learn more here: https://whcc.ca/

    WHAT’S UP WITH MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH?

    WHAT’S UP WITH MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH?

    Our guest, Dr. Simone Vigod, is the head of The Department of Psychiatry at Women's College Hospital and a leading expert in perinatal mood disorders who has conducted some of the largest studies worldwide on maternal mental illness around the time of pregnancy. Mental illness at this life stage poses unique risks to mothers and their children at a critical juncture in both of their lives. Dr. Vigod’s research is helping raise awareness about gaps in access to specialized perinatal mental healthcare, as well as identifying vulnerable populations where these gaps are most prominent.

    Together we discuss maternity and mental health, breakthroughs in women’s mood disorder research that will blow your mind, how anxiety and depression affect moms and their babies, as well as the importance of access to treatments and resources for all.

    WHAT‘S UP WITH MENOPAUSE & AGING WELL?

    WHAT‘S UP WITH MENOPAUSE & AGING WELL?

    Our guest Dr. Sue Ross is a professor and research scientist from the Alberta Women's Health Foundation who offers a common sense, age positive, and more-often-than-not drug-free approach to menopause and aging well. In this conversation, she tells us what she's observed in those who cope best with the symptoms of menopause and shares some advice based on her findings. Namely:


     
    1) Create a community. Even 1 buddy is enough! Accept this as just another chapter in your life during which you're going to want to be surrounded by some solid lady-friends who know what's up - just like early motherhood. 
     
    2) Get walking (if you're able). Even just 15 minutes a day. But make it a habit to get yourself some fresh air. Breath and movement are always the answer.
     
    3) Figure out exactly what's bothering you about the experience of menopause. Is it physical symptoms? Mental symptoms? Everyone is different. Deeply considering your own unique experience will help direct you to the help you actually need.

Keep it up!
