Re-sharing because this list got so many comments and we all know the Silly Season is a melting pot for meno symptoms ⬆️⬆️⬆️!!!


-> 5 game-changing books about Menopause.

I was chatting to the Mum of one of my daughter’s friends the other day about her stress levels and I asked if she had considered stress and stress tolerance in relationship to perimenopause.


Like me, before I hit 47 and was blindsided by what I now know to be perimenopause symptoms, she looked at me with that “wth are you talking about?” look on her face.

Now, I am well aware that not everyone wants to be speaking so openly about “female stuff” especially when we don’t know each other well, AND I also feel like it is my duty as a fellow sister to flag something as potentially helpful if and when I can.

The more we chatted, the more she nodded along, the more interested she became, and when it was time to part company, she asked if there were any books I could recommend as a starting point.

Well well well, being an avid reader, I wanted to give her approximately 28939 billion titles, but I resisted.


Here’s the top 5 game-changing books on Meno I sent her way:

1. Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging by Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer - loved this one for making me feel seen around my need to cleave away everything no longer important or necessary for me in the last 18 months, sees meno transition through a powerful natural and normal lens

2. Hormone Repair Manual: Every Woman’s Guide to Healthy Hormones after 40 by Natuorpath and Hormone Specialist Lara Briden - brilliant overview of female reproductive health and the impacts of hormone imbalance, covers natural and lifestyle advice as well as how to speak to your doctor about other medical treatments

3. The M Word: How to thrive in menopause by TV Celebrity doctor and specialist menopause GP Dr Ginni Mansberg - Ginni has the knack of covering all the different symptoms in a grounded, down-to-earth kind of way and shares her approach to treating menopause transition in her Sydney GP practice

4. The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond by Dr Louann Brizedine - neuropsychiatrist covering the way our brains change for the better in midlife - so good for not feeling like you are “losing your marbles” if you are suffering cognitive and memory changes right now.

5. Second Spring: The self-care guide to Menopause by Kate Codrington - I loved this book so much, and still dive in and out of the much-dog-eared pages full of self-care practises to help you make this transition with more ease and grace.

I would love to know, are there other books that changed the game for your menopause education and transition?
