Perimenopausal Babes is a social enterprise geared towards opening up conversations around perimenopause and creating community for women experiencing perimenopause, approaching the perimenopausal years and for women who are in menopause. Perimenopausal Babes is here to let women know they are not alone in this journey.
Over 250,000 women in Calgary are in the age range of 37 to 55 years, when the onset of perimenopause and menopause are most likely to occur. This is over 36% of the female population of Calgary. According to NAMS, about 75% of women experience some kind of menopausal distress. And for some 20% of these women, symptoms - in particular hot flashes and night sweats - are severe enough to interfere with just about every meaningful aspect of their lives: sleep, work and relationships.
What we do?
We open up conversations and help women learn about, and navigate perimenopause with inspiration, education and connection.
