She hopes UK is 'Just Getting Started' on menopause support
Lisa Snowdon at Wimbledon Bookfest
Having decided to put her potential novel on the back burner, Lisa Snowdon said at Wimbledon Bookfest that her first book 'Just Getting Started' was a book of hope.
It is a very personal account of her experience before, during and after what my generation used to refer to as ‘the change’ but, thanks to women such as Lisa, the subject of menopause is much more widely and openly discussed.
While her book discusses the negative issues associated with being perimenopausal and menopausal, Lisa also highlights many positive aspects of life after the menopause and hopes that her book will help other women with information and advice gleaned from her own experience.
The session closed with a short Q&A where Lisa talked about her ongoing activism stressing the importance of education and moves towards the introduction the subject of menopause into the school curriculum as well as the need for more women’s health specialists in GP surgeries.
