Have you asked yourself the question, “Why didn’t anyone tell me about THIS?” when it came to pregnancy and postpartum? Menopause carries similar sentiments and that’s why I am talking to my friend, Amanda Thebe, about menopause in this episode.

We are talking about the many changes women go through during menopause, how we can be proactive and more from Amanda’s book, Menopocalypse.

Menopause may seem far away but perimenopause can begin in your late 30’s and early 40’s which is not far away for many of us. Don’t miss this episode so you can be proactive in your health.

Thanks for being here today. I want to know your thoughts after this episode! Tag myself and Amanda on IG @Brianna.Battles and @Amanda.Thebe.  I am with you!

In this episode, we cover:

  • Why you need to be thinking about menopause now,
  • Some of the changes you may experience during perimenopause and menopause,
  • Why strength training is essential as you age, and
  • How to stay healthy as you go through menopause and beyond
