Menopause Whilst Black

May 1, 2024

Menopause Whilst Black Season SIX Episode 6 is here!

Our guest this week is Dr Jocelyne Tedajo Tsambou. DrJocelyn is a French born Cameroonian who lived in Senegal and studied in England. She is also step mother to three children.

Dr Jocelyne is a GP, menopause specialist and medical educator, member of the Royal College of General Practitioners and the Ivel Medical Centre in Bedfordshire. Her particular focus on menopause and family planning consultations have seen her push the boundaries of service provision, further cementing her status as a specialist also recognised by the British Menopause Society.  Dr. Jocelyne takes a holistic view and a well balanced approach to health and well being.

We discuss:

> Bio vs and body identical hormones.

> her own long fertility journey.

> the cultural pressure that accompanies childlessness

> finding her purpose through menopause

> Why health professionals must factor in culturaly nuanced menopause experiences earlier.

and much more. 

This episode is available to watch on YouTube and listen on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and beyond. If Dr Jocelyne's words resonate with you, do share it with someone who may benefit from our conversation.
