A trailblazing online Summit is drawing people together for "frank and fearless" conversations, and to address an unmet need for information and support for people experiencing the debilitating symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. 

 

Hot flushes, weight gain, mood swings, night sweats, brain fog, sleep disturbance, period issues… these are some of the many challenging symptoms of perimenopause & menopause. Unfortunately, the menopausal transition is a journey that millions of Australians are navigating without the support and guidance they deserve.

 

World Menopause Day, October 18th, brings the menopausal transition firmly into focus. Here are just a few of the shocking statistics:

 

  • 80% of women experience significant symptoms, and 20% of those will have debilitating hot flushes or night sweats, yet only around 15% are on effective treatment.
  • Effective, low-risk treatments are available which can also help protect women’s hearts, bones, sexual function, independence and mental health.
  • Around 1/3 of women die of cardiovascular events which are largely preventable.
  • Up to 10% of women quit work altogether around this time because of the symptoms.
  • Suicide rates are highest for women in the 45-55 year old bracket.
  • Almost 70% of Australian women aged 40-65 reported a lack of sexual desire, and
  • 20% of women find sex consistently painful.

The consequences of these debilitating symptoms can be far reaching, yet these things are highly preventable. It's time to break the silence and have frank and fearless conversations about perimenopause and menopause. 

 

The “Menopause Uncensored” Online Summit is a passion project for GP and menopause expert Dr Kelly Teagle, who also founded the WellFemme Telehealth Menopause Clinic. “With Menopause Uncensored we will name, normalise and help manage these unacknowledged menopause-related issues. I’ve assembled ten subject matter experts who will share their insights, advice and guidance about how to thrive during the menopausal transition. It will be a forum for frank and fearless conversations, not just for people in peri- and menopause, but also those who care about them.”

Reduction in Indigenous newborn removals by child protection services

Australian research published this month shows women who received care through an innovative Indigenous-led model of maternity care were three times less likely to have their Indigenous newborn removed by child protection services than women who received standard maternity care. The research lands at the same time as the Australian Government’s Closing the Gap 2023 Annual Report which shows the rate of over-representation of Indigenous children in out-of-home care in Australia continues to increase. Kristie Watego, Birthing in Our Community (BiOC) Service Development Manager, Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH), said the results show it is possible to significantly reduce…
