    7. Midwives and the Menopause - Debra Holloway

    7. Midwives and the Menopause - Debra Holloway

    The menopause will happen to all women and as a largely female profession midwives and student midwives need to know about it, for their own wellbeing and to support women and families who may request information and support.

    Recent media coverage of the topic has been helpful in identifying some of the issues that women face at this time of their lives, some of the challenges and stigma women face and what information and treatments are available.

    The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as a woman's oestrogen levels decline. In the UK, the average age for a woman to reach the menopause is 51. (NHS 2021) however POI ( menopause under 40) can happen at any time.

    In this session Debra Holloway, Nurse Consultant will discuss these issues, consider the many treatments/therapies and approaches and how these can impact on women and their families, plus some share some useful resources.
