These statements and many like them echo the voices of the women I work with and are common ways to feel when your sleep is disrupted during the menopause.

Menopause is a natural transition for women, but not always an easy one. For some women it’s important to appear to be coping to their families and friends and especially at work. This can be exhausting in itself.

What I hear from the women that I work with is firstly relief. Relief that someone says that it’s ok not to be putting on a brave face and a relief to know that there are practical solutions. Sometimes the first time that women have spoken to a healthcare professional they feel unheard, misunderstood or made to feel ashamed because they’re struggling.
