With The Pause Pod Podcast, I wanted, first and foremost, to focus on the people experiencing peri/post-menopause. Experts are great, valued, appreciated, and necessary. And I’ll have them on. But I want to connect the human faces to this human experience that’s menopause.
So having real people on to tell their stories is important. Asking people what they want, how they are coping, and getting their perspective is also important. I want people experiencing menopause to feel seen, heard, cared for, and valued during this phase.
The many complexities of menopause can leave women tired, overwhelmed, and frustrated. Trust me, I know those feelings all too well as I’m currently navigating the post-menopause phase.
Well, we stand to learn a thing or two from my guest, who is counteracting the downsides of menopause by chasing the glow to level up her midlife-menopause experience.
Monique Cupid is the founder & executive producer of ML Design and Production, lifestyle content creator at Midlife Glow Chaser, and Brown Skin Green Beauty.
Lean in and listen to her menopause story and what she does to glow up despite the hormonal changes that sometimes threaten to dull her shine.
Let’s (peri)MenoPAUSE and prosper!
