Menopause Whilst Black

Nov 22, 2023

Our guest for the first episode of Season Five is Jewellery Creative and founder of eponymous brand AngeB Designs, Angela Benjamin.

West London based Ange (pronounced in one syllable) of Grenadian heritage tells us how she first realised that she was entering peri-menopause in her early fifties and just when the first lockdown began, and the trials that ensued.

Years later, Ange feels that she has a good handle on her own menopause care, thanks to a combination of factors that she shares with honesty.

We discuss,

> physical vs mental symptoms

> Trying to do it all ‘naturally’.

> Fibroids

> To HRT or not to HRT?

>  Releasing food shame.


And much more!
