At BeingEve, our aim is to bring you expert advice, tips and tools to manage menopause symptoms and live a healthier and happier menopause.
As Iris Murdoch said ‘there are as many menopauses as women’, but for a lot of us, it all starts the same way. It sneaks up on you. Every woman’s experience of the menopause is unique, so having the right information to hand is key to making the right decisions about how best to manage your symptoms and get through this next phase of your life.
That’s why we’ve brought together experts from many different professions providing expert advice, tips and tools to manage your menopause symptoms using a range of techniques and treatments for you to make informed decisions about what’s right for you.
We’ve been inspired by many stories from women who have chosen a new career, started a new relationship, taken on a new challenge – in other words, continued to grow and thrive during this time.
The name Eve itself means ‘to breathe’, ‘to live’ and we can’t think of any better way to sum up this new and exciting phase of our lives. Join us in this amazing journey.
