Everybody Health and Leisure in partnership with Motherwell Cheshire CIO have launched Menopause Cafes at local Everybody facilities in Holmes Chapel, Crewe, Macclesfield and soon to be Nantwich.
At the menopause café the community can discuss menopausal symptoms, tips and worries in a confidential and inspiring environment. Everyone is welcome to come and have a chat, grab a drink and talk about the menopause. A great opportunity to discuss how you are feeling, your symptoms, ask questions and get support from others. An accessible, respectful and confidential space, open for all, regardless of gender or age, with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action.
The menopause café dates up to Christmas are as follows:
- Crewe Lifestyle Centre, Mondays 10.15am – 11.45am- 21st November and 5th December
- Holmes Chapel Community Centre, Wednesdays 10.00am – 11.30am- 23rd November and 7th December
- Macclesfield Leisure Centre, Wednesdays 7.00pm – 8.30pm- 23rd November and 7th December
- Nantwich Leisure Centre Friday’s 12.30pm -2:00pm- 18th November and 2nd December
Suzy Brett who joined the Crewe Menopause Café when it first began commented:
“I’m 48, perimenopausal tried HRT then herbal remedies and now back successfully on HRT. Prior to this I had not spoken to anyone else about it and didn’t fully understand what it meant.
The cafe was friendly and inviting, we all shared our experience, concerns and laughed, cried and best of all felt I was no longer alone. I had found a safe place to talk and share how I was feeling without being judged. I’ve been to every session, made friends, socialised and have since become a facilitator for two Crewe cafes. I am so passionate about empowering women through this journey.
What an exciting opportunity which I wouldn’t have had if I not joined The Menopause Cafe ran by Motherwell [Cheshire CIO] and Everybody [Health and Leisure] Gym.”
