Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is a hotly debated topic. It has benefits and risks, and we found a very interesting person to discuss all of that with: Katie Taylor, founder of The Latte Lounge and daughter of an eminent breast cancer surgeon, Professor Michael Baum. Katie recently went to Westminster with some of her colleagues, to meet with the Health secretary to campaign for better menopause support. She also spoke last year at the largest UK Mental Health Conference ‘This Can Happen’ about Menopause in the Work Place. Last summer she won The ‘Work Avenue Entrepreneur of The Year’ award beating off stiff competition. She also won the Highly Commended Mpower Mums in Business Award this year and was listed as one of the 10 women to watch in 2019 by About Time Magazine. She has things to say about women’s health and menopause, and we know you’ll find this podcast electrifying and motivating!
Visit The Latte Lounge FB group which Katie set up 3 years ago for Women Over 40 because she had suffered debilitating perimenopausal symptoms for 4 years which were misdiagnosed as depression and forced her to give up 3 jobs. Eventually she was put on HRT and turned to Facebook to express her frustration and anger that she had wasted 4 precious years of life due to badly trained General Practicioners. Within one day, the group attracted 2,000 members and now almost 3 years on it has over 16,000 women over 40 in 69 countries growing organically at a rate of 100 new members a week.
