Summary

An empowering guide to make perimenopause and menopause a positive experience.

During perimenopause three quarters of women will experience symptoms such as mood changes, insomnia, hot flushes and night sweats, but there is little in the way of evidence-based information out there to help and guide us. Perimenopause Power is the essential handbook to understanding what the hell's going on and to empower us to improve our experience of the dreaded 'change'.

Maisie Hill, the highly qualified women's health expert, best-selling author of Period Power and founder of The Flow Collective, takes us through the physiological changes of perimenopause and menopause, step by step, with calm positivity. In this invaluable guide she shares tips and advice to support women through the challenge of wildly fluctuating hormones.

A must-listen for anyone looking for a well-researched, evidenced-based book on perimenopause and menopause that gives women the information they need to address their hormonal needs. Perimenopause Power will help women to understand what's going on with their bodies and how to deal with troublesome symptoms, and share valuable insights into making it a positive and powerful experience.

In one ear and out the other I’m afraid

With my menopausal brain fog I need to be able to retain facts, something I was unable to do with this audio book. I found this a bit boring. I thought it would be funny and relatable but instead I found it overly scientific (lots of medical names, hormones etc) bits of it were good but then it seemed to slip back into explaining one hormone after the other, I’m never going to be able to recall any of it. I also found the odd swear word a bit incongruous, one minute she would be talking very medically then she’d say things like ‘moody as f***’ which didn’t seem in keeping somehow.

Learned a lot

I feel like I learned a lot. A friend who is a sexual health doctor told me there are a few inaccuracies, but I feel what I’ve learned about the impact of the different hormones in my body is really beneficial to my understanding of myself.

Biased and badly read

One of my pet hates is authors who insist on reading their own material. I should’ve followed my own bias in this respect and not bought this book. To be fair, I’ve heard much less engaging narrations.

As for the content, it’s neither one thing nor another - or even a third! It purports to be accessible but throwing in chummy language doesn’t make it so. The technical/scientific content is considerable but patchy, with some topics being dismissed in barely a few sentences. And it’s certainly not objective - the author’s clear preferences are continually on show: ending a critical opinion with phrases such as, “but you may not find it so” doesn’t alter the direction of the argument advanced.

I’ve tried picking it up more than once. I really want some unbiased, scientifically presented advice. I just can’t find it here and I’m disappointed to the point of irritation. And I only ever return books I find irritating- this is in a very small group of such disappointments.

Everyone in the 30’s needs to read this book

I was going to put off looking at menopause stuff but actually am so glad I informed myself now so I am able to recognise when this is starting and do something about all the symptoms that come with it. There is no need to suffer, read/ listen to this book

a must read for all women, not just perimenopausal

As a Functional Medicine Practitioner and Nutritional Therapist specialising in hormonal health, I can safely say that I agree with everything Maisie has written in this book. she educates women with easy to understand explanations, anecdotes and her own experiences. she also provides invaluable advice too. I highly recommend this book to all women, but especially women who are 40+.

Great reference book

This book is a great reference guide to start thinking about menopause. It shares a lot of references and help. I’m happy that I listened to it And most likely will get a printed copy As a reference for the future.
